At the 9:24 mark, PE scored to tie the match at 2-2. PE took the 3-2 lead 11:24 into the second.

Strider answered with a goal at the 24:24 mark to knot the score at 3-3. Approximately three minutes later, Bluestone’s Knott added a goal off an assist from A.T. Williamson for the 4-3 lead.

PE rallied in the final minutes by posting two goals, one at the 33:5-mark and at the 38-minute mark to win 5-4.
