Gillespie widened the Vet's lead to three goals with his second goal of the game on an empty net in the last minute of the game. 

Jackson Swindells had a solid goal tending effort for the Vets, stopping 29 shots. The win lifted the Vet's to a two-way tie with Paris for fourth place in the league. Burford will get a chance at redemption this evening when the Vets visit the Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m.
