The first period was an even battle between the two teams. The scoreless first half was finally broken at the 14:34 mark when Josh Shalla fired a shot past Saginaw native Devin Williams to put the Spirit up 1-0. Michael Fine and Brandon Saad assisted Shalla’s goal. The Spirit would remain one up on the Erie at the end of the first period.

At the 6:00 mark, Garret Ross took control of the puck and scored on Erie! Vincent Trocheck and Eric Locke assisted Ross’s tic-tac-toe goal. Saginaw’s goal would not be enough to keep Erie away. 19:29 Erie’s Nick Betz fires a long shot that sneaks past Spirit’s goaltender, Jake Paterson. Stephen Harper and Kris Grant assisted Betz’s goal. The score would remain tied 2-2 heading into the third period.
5:14 in the third period Jimmy Lodge drove towards the net and fired a shot past Williams for Saginaw’s third goal of the game! Justin Kea assisted Trocheck’s goal. With the adrenaline rushing, the Spirit kept the scoring going. 18:35 in the period, Garret Ross hung around the net and scored off a rebound to make the score 4-2.
