Stephen Belyea opened the scoring for Amherst late in the second period before Brody Deegan had a pair of third period goals to send the game into overtime.

Both teams had several great changes in the five-minute overtime period, including a five-on-three power play for the Titans early in the extra frame.

Kyle Lowerison had an assist for Tantramar while Belyea, Justin Leach and Madison Colford added assists for Amherst.

On Friday, Belyea and Brad Black each scored twice as the Vikings won the opener 6-0 with Evan MacKenzie earning the shutout.
