The final period saw Hertz trying to mount a last period come back with an early goal, but the Spitfires scored 2 more goals with Spitfires’ captain, Brad “Big Daddy” Wilson scoring an empty netter to finish off the game. The final score of the game was 6-3 for the Spitfires. The Rolling Stone Pizza Player of the Game went to Wilson for his goal and outstanding play in both the offensive and defensive zones.
