The game was a re-match from last year which the Wolves lost in OT.

However, Mason was not going to go quietly and put up 3 unanswered goals to start the second half in an offensive blitz . Mason closed the deficit to just one goal after a man-up goal and it was gut check time for the Wolves. Kilbourne answered next with a goal to stem the tide and then extended the lead to 2. Finally, the Wolves added one more insurance goal to ultimately claim a 10-7 win. It was a good game by both teams.
Five different Wolves scored in the game and six Wolves registered a point. Kilbourne had a clean clearing game overall as well.
