Both team scored twice in the first period, the Titans got their goals from Joakim Braneby and Axel Hallor. In the middle period , the Pirates jumped ahead 3-2 only to have Erik Lilliecreutz send the tema to their dressing rooms tied once more with a power play goal with only 26 seconds to play in the period.
The Titans have one last home game on Saturday night when they host the Almaguin Spartans. Prior to the start of the game the Titans will be retiring captain Dayton Murray’s jersey in a ceremony.
