The Yettis took off like a shot in the second period. Over the course of the 20-minute period, the Yettis scored a total of seven times.

While playing a tough and fast offence, the team made sure to stay tight defensively. The Venom made it through the team only once in the second period.

With one last period to play the Yettis had a comfortable eight-point lead, 10-2.

The final frame of the game played out much the same as the earlier two. The Yettis racked up another four points and only let in one.
