But the Rams were still able to claw their way back to within a goal with a score from Doug Foery with just 40 seconds remaining in the finale.The Rams unleashed one more furious offensive onslaught onto the Goonies' goalie Jason Hurst, but Hurst shut the gate on all the shots. The Goonies' Tyler Sheble controlled the puck for the last 10 seconds to secure the Goonies' second consecutive adult spring season championship 4-3.
