Two goals in 29 seconds in the dying minutes helped Newfoundland Fasteners avoid an early end to the season.

Scott Wayson scored with 1:33 left in regulation to break a 2-2 deadlock and Brian Park sent a ball down the ice into a yawning cage with the opposition’s goaltender on the bench 29 seconds later to force a fifth and deciding game in the Corner Brook Molson Men’s Broomball League best-of-five semifinal series Monday night.

Ron Burnett and Rick Kean also scored for the winners, while Shawn Jenkins and Tyler Wells scored for Investors Group, who rallied back from a two-goal deficit to make for an interesting finish to Game 4.

The fifth and final game of the series is scheduled for Monday 8:30 p.m. at the Pepsi Centre.
