The Acadie-Bathurst Titan are going to Game 5 against the Halifax Mooseheads after a dramatic victory that also marked the franchise's longest game.

Mathieu Cataford scored the first goal of the evening, putting the Moose up 1-0 early in the second period.

Just seconds later, Marcus Vidicek followed up with another goal, scoring his fourth of the post-season and giving the Moose a 2-0 lead.

The Titan fought back, with Cole Huckins scoring for the Acadie-Bathurst team and making the score 2-1.

Things were all tied up by the end of the second period after Hendrix Lapierre scored for the Titan. 

Early in the third period, Cole Larkin scored for the Titan, putting them up 3-2.

Just as the game looked to belong to the Titan, Cataford scored his second goal of the night, tying things up yet again at 3-3.

In the third round of overtime, the Titan thought they may have survived with a goal from Ben Allison, but it was quickly overturned by officials. 

Riley Kidney scored the game-winning goal for the Titan after a record 116 minutes and 14 seconds of play.

The previous record for the longest game of the Mooseheads franchise came back in 2008, going 103 minutes and 2 seconds.
