In the blowout win, Mitch Parker scored four goals and added four assists and Brett Hawrys had four goals as well.

Andrew Miller, Ryan Hanna, Ben Cawthorne, Tyson Roe and Jeremy Roe were the other scorers and Conor Woroniuk and Nate Clark split time in the crease.
The next day Hawrys scored four times for the T-men and Macgregor Johnston and Tyson Roe also tallied.
