In the third Wallaceburg took the lead for the first time at 7:03 by Chris Taylor.  Action continue and ten minutes later Sam Jasmin widened the Lakers lead.  In the last minute of play with Wallaceburg killing a power play, Mooretown pulled their goalie for the two man attack.  Mike Burns scored his second of the night on that attack to narrow the score to one, but time ran out giving Wallaceburg the game.
