Eagles 4 Dogs 3
It was 1-0 Eagles in the back half of the first as Brayden Jaw found a rebound in front. The Dogs would hang tight to keep it 1-0 with a full two-minute 5 on 3 penalty kill and then tie the game seconds later when Trent Dorais one-timed a Hunter Stewart feed home.
The Eagles went up 2-1 early in the second as Trevor Cameron drove the net and found a rebound after an initial save by Matt Larose on a partial breakaway for Tyler Morley after he made a slick move to slip a Bulldog defender. It was 3-1 less than a minute later when Sean McGovern potted an end-board bounce in tight but the Dogs battled back to make it 3-2 shortly afterwards when Yan Kalashnikov found a rebound off a Walker Hyland shot and set up Trent Dorais in the slot for his second of the game. Surrey then went up 4-2 later in the period on a pretty three-way passing play on the rush that was finished off by Brayden Jaw with a top corner snap shot, glove side on Larose. The Eagles looked to have taken a 5-2 lead later in the period on what would have been the third of the game for Jaw but a conference with the officials saw the goal waved off with the ruling that it was kicked in. That would be big late in the period when the Dogs made it a 4-3 game in the dying seconds when Josh Mitchell found Brandon Halls walking in from the point where he one-timed the feed just over the glove of Hunt.
There would be no scoring in the third, with the Dogs drawing a penalty with just under a minute to play after pulling their goalie for the extra attacker with 1:43 left. They would have several chances to tie it but the Eagles held the fort and made the lead stand.
Final shots favored the Eagles 42-28 with Andrew Hunt and Matt Larose being the goalies of record.
The Dogs went 0 for 3 on the power play while the Eagles went 0 for 1
