The second period was another story as Lacombe rattled off three quick goals to take the lead 3-2, however the Lakers were able to get one pack at the 17:36 mark of the second period as Cole Lawrence found the twine on the power play pushing the score to 3-3 going into the final period.

It would take nearly three quarters of the period before Karcha would notch his second goal of the game at the 15:48 mark.

The Lakers would hold on to the lead winning 4-3. Karcha would finsh the game with 3 points, while Aidan Sigfussen and Ashton Fonda would finish with 2 points respectively.
