Game two was played on Tuesday evening in Lumsden. The table was turned in this game as the goaltenders were stopping most everything coming at them. There were two goals scored late in the first period and they would be the only goals in regulation time. Jessie Matlock scored for the Monarchs and then Ryley Storzuk would score for the Rockets. After regulation play the Monarchs had outshout the Rockets 47-25. Brady Aulie would score his third goal of the series 54 seconds into overtime and the Monarchs would pull out a 2-1 victory . Each team was 0/2 on the powerplay. Will Hood picked up the win in the Lumsden net and Dean Brothen was in the Raymore net. Both played very well in this game.
