Okanagan College were the better team in the first period, out shooting the Clan by a margin of 13-4 and taking a 1-0 lead on a power-play effort by Layne Stopanski.
But the Clan roared back in the second period and took their first lead of the night following goals by Jono Cecil and Kyle Boyko. The Coyotes' Patrik Martin briefly evened the score, but SFU retook the lead less than a minute later when an OC turnover was converted for a goal by Taylor Piller.
The Clan saw the lead slip away late in the period, however, as Chris Glen capitalized on a poor outlet pass and beat SFU starter Graeme Gordon from point-blank range.
A dramatic third period followed, with the teams trading chances throughout. A penalty kill halfway through the frame was crucial for the Clan, as minutes later Bill Smith cruised down the left wing and beat Sunny Gill high to the glove side for the game winner.
SFU outshot the Coyotes 38-25 on the night and 34-12 over the game's final 40 minutes. Gordon claimed the win with a 22-save effort while a Sunny Gill was an unlucky loser following a number of great stops.
SFU now moves on to the Championship Game to face a Vikes team that defeated them in a shootout in their tournament opener on Thursday night. Face off from Memorial Arena is set for 3:00PM and is available for viewing online at a pay-per-view price of $6.00.
