Luke Parsons scored on a breakaway with a nifty wrist shot beating Dyke cleanly on the glove side and Stephen Simms scored the game-winning marker with a lazer beam from the point that went through a maze of players and over the glove of Dyke who had no chance on the play.
Brady Morey, inserted into the Deer Lake lineup with first-liners T. J. Smith and Ryan Penney out of action due to suspensions, scored the other goal for Deer Lake.

Jeremy Bishop, on a setup from Hawco, scored the other goal for the Royals.
