One goal over their final 120 minutes of hockey spelled the end of the Langley Rivermen.

In game five, Colin Burston and Blake Christensen scored a goal apiece in the first two periods.

Langley’s Cameron Ginnetti gave the Rivermen some life with a power-play goal midway through the third but that was the only puck to elude the Wild’s Chase Perry, who finished with 25 saves.

Wenatchee’s Kyle Stephan scored into the empty net in the final seconds.

The teams had split the two games by 4-3 scores, with Wenatchee winning their game in overtime.

The Wild now face the Chilliwack Chiefs in the Mainland Division finals.
