The teams traded goals in the second quarter which left Gold ahead 4-3 to end the half.
It seemed like Gold might run away with the game when Mack Fall took 3 quick faceoffs to open the third period. The first resulted in an assist by Fall to Will Painter (Hurricane) for a goal with 7 seconds gone. Then it was Fall to Sam Skinner (GW) to Painter for another goal eight seconds later. Fall's third face-off resulted in a another possession for Blue. The teams traded goals with George Washington's Andy Aloise tieing it up at six with an assist by his GW teammate Sam Skinner.
Four minutes and 16 seconds later, Fall scored unassisted to give the Blue team the lead for the rest of the game. Blue ended the quarter up 9-7.
Gold was able to create a small run in the fourth quarter, by scoring the last two goals of the game. Devin Lenky (Linsly) scored with 5:54 left, assisted by Patrick Hurley (Wheeling Central). Jordan Look (BU) added another goal 57 seconds later, assisted by Ruan Venter (Morgantown).
