In the second period it was Josh Currie scoring for the Battalion, stretching their lead to three. The captain, Jason Willms would answer for the Colts to bring the game back to within two goals heading to the third period. Tyson Foerster and Tyler Tucker got the assists.
In the final frame it was Riley Piercey scored two minutes in, assisted by Jack York and Jason Willms. With five minutes to play in the third, Tyler Tucker scored to tie the game. Victor Hadfield got the assist on Tucker’s fifth of the season. With 1:29 left in the third period, North Bay’s Harrison Caines scored to give the Battalion a one goal lead. The Colts would pull their goalie and get some chances late in the game, but just fell short.
