They may be down, but the Delhi Knights of Columbus Rockets are certainly not out.
Powered by two goals in the second period, and two more in the third, the Mariposa Lightning skated away with a 5-2 victory over the Delhi Rockets Wednesday night in Delhi.
Everett Graham got the Lightning going, netting the lone goal of the first period, before teammates Logan Jenkins and Nick Patterson added to the cause in the second frame.
Ryan Hill breathed a little life into the Rockets early in the third period, before Jacob Salazar and Matthew Mulvenna gave the Lightning some insurance.
Trevor Gee scored late for the Rockets to give them a bit of momentum as the provincial final heads to Game 4 after the March Break.
The Lightning lead the best-of-six Ontario Minor Hockey Association midget C final 5-1. Game 4 is March 25 at 8pm, in Little Britain.
