Expedia opened his one up in the first period when Juhani Ijas score a power play goal. In the second period, Aware answered back with three goals, each scored by Ryan Yaden, Patrik Lundback, and Corry Day, Early in the third period, Patrick Forstner scored for Expedia to bring it within in one. With just under ten minutes left in the game, Yean Thanakroekkiat scored an unassisted goal to increase Aware’s lead to two again. With just under two minutes left in the game, Expedia pulled their netminder in the hopes of scoring two quick goals, but with 30 seconds left in the game, Thanakroekkiat scored his second of the night, this one an empty netter to finish this one off for Aware 5-2. The Rolling Stone Pizza Player of the Game went to Corry Day for his incredible play in the offensive zone, scoring a goal and getting an assist.
