Becker's Cody Foster (Saugus, Calif.) held off 14 Bison shots on net in the first period to keep the score at 0-0 heading into the second period.
The second period saw a total of six goals – three from Becker and three from Nichols.

The goal was assisted by Charles Costello (Philadelphia, Pa.) and Romain Wild (Mex, Switzerland). Nichols tied the score at 1-1 on a Vincent Crivello (Rosemere, Que.) goal seven minutes in on helpers from Hogan Davidson (Duluth, Minn.) and Frank Zak (Farmington Hills, Mich.). The teams traded goals twice more, as the score was 3-3 at the end of the frame. Corey Schafer (Johnstown, Pa.) and Stephen Wolf (Somersworth, N.H.) scored for Becker, while Curtis Carlson (Lakewood, N.Y.) and Nicholas Mangone (Massapequa Park, N.Y.) scored for the Bison.
The third period proved to be in favor of Nichols, as the Bison sent home three goals in the final frame. Crivello found his second goal of the night 7:09 into the period. Petr Miko (Zlin, Czech Republic) scored the Bison's fifth goal, and Mangone notched another goal late in the period for the 6-3 final score.
