The first goal was scored by the Wizards at the five-minute mark, but that was the last goal for the Wizards, due to the stifling defense of Kevin Perry and Emma Dunn. Goalie Connor Reeves then put on a clinic that stopped the few shots that were put goal easily.

The second period was scoreless for both teams but not for a lack of trying on the Cavaliers’ part. Bailey Landsteiner with squirts Gavin Asimakopulos and Brendan Doughty played up one level to replace players who are injured and even had a shot on goal each.

Starting the third period was a goal scored by Logan Bower with an assist on a text book break away perpetrated by Niko Mastakouras. The second goal slap shot by Matt Tataronis with a wrap around the goal assist by Will Roncone. The last goal was an open net goal in the last thirty seconds made by Mastakouras.
