The Outsiders evened up the score with two goals in the first five minutes of the second period, but Brent Machado took the lead back with a short handed goal off the rebound of a breakaway chance from Mike Bartock. The Outsiders came right back with their third goal to go into the third period with a 3-3 tie.
The tie game held through most of the third, but the Outsiders pulled ahead. The Squirrels had many good chances, but the Outsiders scored on fluke of a goal to go up by two goals with just over two minutes to go. The Outsiders added an empty netter to win by three.
