Trailing 4-2 after two periods, Black Horse scored four third period goals and hung on to defeat Williamstown 6-5 as Zachary Faust scored four goals to make sure senior night was a success for Black Horse. The four goals give Faust a league high of 43 on the season and he has surpassed 100 points for his 3 year career.
