A fast finish was the genesis to another Wellington Dukes victory on Friday night.

A five-goal third period helped the Dukes bust out of a 1-1 deadlock and exact some revenge in the season series finale versus the Haliburton County Huskies with a 6-1 win.

Jacob Vreugdenhil started the onslaught with his 23rd of the season and the eventual game-winner, jamming in a puck that was trickling on the goal line.

Ed Moskowitz pulled back even in goals with the Dukes’ captain, scoring his 23rd of the season on a backhand, followed by a wonderful individual effort from Matheson Mason to steal the puck from a Huskies defender and deke out Haliburton goalie Tyler Hodges and extend the lead to three.

David Campbell shelved his 14th of the season to make it 5-1 at the 12:39 mark of the third.

Luke Strickland stole the puck at the Dukes blueline and fed Barret Joynt on a 2-on-0 for the capper in the final minute.

After Ty Collins gave Jacob Osborne and the Dukes their only blemish on the night 5:30 into the first, Campbell set up Connor Hunt for his 16th of the year on a quick shot upstairs on Hodges.

Hunt, Campbell, Vreugdenhil, Mason, Moskowitz, and Jacob Dietz all had multi-point performances and Osborne ended up with 23 saves.
