It wasn't always pretty, but the Halifax Mooseheads held on for a 3-1 Friday night win in Acadie-Bathurst. 

After a scoreless first period, Upper Tantallon native Jake Furlong opened the scoring for the Mooseheads early in the second. Bobby Orr pickied up an assist on the goal. 

The Herd would keep up the pressure on the Titan, with Senna Peeters ringing a shot off the crossbar. Halifax extended the lead to 2-0 late in the second period off the stick of Steven Davis, his first QMJHL goal. 

Acadie-Bathurst would come out strong to start the third period with Enfield's Liam Kidney scoring an early goal two bring the game within a goal. 

After a 10 minute delay to deal with a pane of glass behind the goalie the Titan kept up the pressure. Acadie-Bathurst had the tying goal called back after a review determined the play was offside. 

Halifax would survive a tough third-period push. The Mooseheads getting some insurance in the final minute as Zach L'Heureux scored on an empty Titan net.
