Cole Hackett (2-1) netted the tying goal at 9:40 of the third period, and Chasse Gallant’s unassisted tally at 13:05 proved to be the difference. Isaac Callaghan (1-1), Jason Gallant and Silas Handrahan also lit the lamp for the Red Wings. Other assists were credited to Evan Millman, Lucas Beaulieu, Alex Morrissey, Isaac Knox and Curklan Fraser.
Dylan MacDonald (2), Cody MacPhee (1-1), Pat McGuigan and Jordan Birt contributed goals for the first-place Metros (7-4-1). Zach Ladner, Nick Currie, Cale Pierce, Colin Koughan, Tanner Lund and Connor Gray picked up assists.
