Liam Brennan scored twice and Torrey Lindsey scored the other goal. Lumsden led 3-0 after one period and outshot the Canucks 15-5 in the first period. In the second period the play got a little tighter and there were few shots in the first 10 minutes. Travis Orr would score on the power play 14 minutes into the period and then Taylor Orr would steal the puck and score two minutes later and it was 3-2 after two periods. Shots were 27-15 for the Monarchs after two periods. In the third period the Canucks wasted no time making the game 3-3 when Cody Hall scored on the power play. The game went 17 minutes until the Monarchs sciored with just over a minute left off the stick of Dale Spelchen. Tyler Penny would score the final goal and Lumsden would win 5-3.
