In the win, Nolan Richardson and Carter Turnbull each had two goals and an assist and other scorers were Chad Bell, Zach Funk, Jordan Levesque and Trent Bell. Joe Gage had three assists and Jakob Severson was the winning goalie.
The next day, Nik Malenica and Hobin Zinck scored for the Bucs and the team was outshot 44-24.
