Petrolia would find the net twice in the period to take the lead, first on the power play as Mitch Zavitz tied the game as well as picking up an assist on Jason McPhail's go ahead goal.

In the third, Scott Hull would put the Squires up by two goals with a short handed goal, but the Thunder would come back to tie things up. Terry Lammens would score on the power play, followed by Ryan Gaertner scoring as well on the power play to tie the game at 3-3. But Veenema's goal would give the Squires the victory with seconds remaining.
