The Majors had the winning momentum in their camp. However, they did not start well as they conceded a goal in the 5th minute. However, after the conceded goal, they stepped up in the game and their offensive game improved. Also, goaltender Quizi made some notable saves that kept the team in the game. Furthermore, Scott had a great opportunity to score in the final minute of the 1st period, but the opposing goaltender saved the shot.

In the 2nd period of the game, the Majors faced a tough battle as their opponents played well too. Defenceman Palermo played really well and cut many of the attacking moves of the Reps. Logan Dumo also had a good chance to score but his shot ended on the chest of goaltender Monaco. However, the Majors dropped their pace and lost control of the puck.

The Reps started this game strong and they dominated the first 5 minutes of the game. That domination resulted in Lalkin scoring a goal in the 5th minute after a solo effort.
