Breaking away from a 3-3 deadlock, Wilson got the game winning goal by Joshua Van Buren with 11:05 remaining. The Lakemen then added an insurance goal a minute and a half later as Cesar Carlin tallied with 9:33 to go.

The victory boosts Wilson’s record to 8-3 and keeps the Lakemen within a half game of front-running Medina/Lyndonville (8-2-1).

Newfane also stayed right in the title chase by blanking CSAT 5-0 to improve to 7-3-1.

In the other N-O contest,Akron (7-4) scored three late goals to lock up a 4-0 victory over host Roy-Hart (4-7).

Albion had knotted the contest at 3-3 with 14:42 remaining on a direct kick goal by Cam Usselman.

The Purple Eagles had jumped out to leads of 1-0 and 2-1 in the first half as Usselman scored off an assist from Marcos Sanchez and then Sanchez tallied from Usselman.

However, both times Wilson answered right back with the equalizer, first on a goal by Carlin and then on a tally by Brayden Skobjak.
