Gloucester entered the third period down 4-2 and exploded for four goals in the frame for the win. Pete Mondello put the Fishermen up 5-4 with five minutes to play after a nice move out of the corner and added an empty netter while Methuen had a two man advantage to preserve the win.

Owen Parisi played well in goal picking up his second straight win with 40 saves. Alex Webb, Max Vittands, Casey Noyes and Matt Lane also scored goals for Gloucester while Stephen Tettoni and Cam DeCoste chipped in assists.
