Less than nine minutes into the frame, the Chiefs put the puck past goaltender Gavin Bradt to cut the lead to 2-1. But, ten and a half minutes in, Cameron Marshall capitalized on a
Lumberjack power play, restoring the two-goal lead. Three and a half minutes after that goal, the Chiefs would strike again, making it a 3-2 game. But before the period ended, Andrew Naccarato-Soule scored to give the Lumberjacks a 4-2 lead.
The game would remain that score until late in the third period. Nearly 16 minutes in, the Chiefs scored again. But, a minute later, Marshall scored his second goal of the game, making it a 5-3 score. Then, with only 35 seconds left on the clock, Marshall scored his hat trick goal.
