Boyd gave Orillia 1-0 lead in the first period.

Down 8-5 in the second, the Kings (8-6-1) rallied for 3 late goals to tie the game at 8-8 after 40 minutes.

Jeff Fernandes had 7 points (3 goals, 4 assists) for the previously unbeaten Gaels (11-1-0).

Power plays saw the Kings go 3-for-6, the Green Gaels went 5-for-7.

The next game for the Kings is Friday night when they travel to Oakville to play the Buzz.
