Orchard Park would get on the board in the third, five minutes into the period Owen Hughes puts it home on the power play for the goal, it’s now 3-1.
Two minutes later, though, OP bringing it down but Okulewicz is there to steal it and finish it off with a top shelf goal for his second score of the day to bring the Spartans up 4-1.
