Midway through the second, Delta’s Brayden Bohm knotted things up at 2-2, on the power play, setting the stage for a high-stakes third period.
Mirko Buttazzoni put BWC back up just 21 seconds into the third period and it looked as though BWC would hang on to the lead, but a Delta goal in the final 30 seconds sent this game to overtime, then a shootout.
Merick Eriksson stopped all three Delta shooters in the shootout and Lisowsky, the second BWC shooter, scored the golden goal deliver BWC the big win.
