Kevin Jackson scored the game-winning goal with 1 minute, 24 seconds left, giving the B-52s an 8-7 win over the Illinois Piasa on Saturday in Pontoon Beach, Ill.

The goal, Jackson’s second of the game — and the season — came after Wichita let a 7-5 lead slip away when the Piasa’s Jon Fridal scored two goals in the final minutes of the quarter.

Matt Clare had three goals and two assists for the B-52s. Makel Chang added a pair of power-play goals.

The victory was the B-52s’ second — both have been one-goal victories over the Piasa.

Wichita plays again Sunday at Chicago.
