Thompson, a foreign exchange student from Santiago, Chile, who leads the Kanawha Valley in scoring with 46 goals, netted an unassisted goal with 9:02 to go before halftime to knot the game at 1-all.
Thompson gave the Redskins the lead for good at 2-1 with 27:13 left in the second half off a setup from senior Trevor Cunningham. Thompson muscle his way past two defenders in the box and put a torpedo in the net.
"Felipe Thompson knows what to do with that ball when he gets it,'' Dagostine said. "The boys were resilient. We were on our heels a lot.''
No. 3 Huntington (16-3-1) and Hurricane were scheduled to meet during the regular season but didn't because a snafu.
Highlanders keeper Hunter Smith turned in two second-half saves.
"You get opportunities, it's just can you execute?'' said Huntington coach Sammy Boateng. "We executed some of them, and we didn't execute some of them.''
