The Terriers would cut their deficit in half and make it a one goal game once again as Colby Brandt one-timed home a nice cross-ice pass from Chantz Petruic to cut it a 4-3 game after 2 periods.

The North Stars would regain their two goal lead just 15 seconds later, as Seth Summers beat Andrew Henderson five-hole for his 1st SJHL goal to make it 5-3.
