The teams would have a feeling out process through the early part of the first period. Eventually, Plattsburgh's Austin Lucas would get the opening goal of the game at the 6:34 mark of the first period and that's how the first period would end. In the second period though the Lakers wouldn't take long to tie the game up at one Dylan Annell goal. Then just under the five-minute mark of the second period the Lakers would take the 2-1 lead once again coming from Dylan Annell. Then in the closing seconds of the second period, Rhett Darrah would come down on the breakaway and slide it by the Hornets goalie for the 3-1 cushion. In the third period, the Hornets wouldn't go quietly as Drew Knowles would score just about at the midway mark to make it a one-goal game again at 3-2. Then with about 5:30 left in the game, the Hornets would get the tying goal to make it 3-3. Just when the game was starting to look like we were headed for overtime Rhett Darrah would strike again for his second goal of the game with 14 seconds left in the game to give the Lakers the 4-3 win. In the winning effort, the Lakers would go to 1-2 on the season while the Hornets would finish the regular season at 0-12 and will get ready for their playoff game against Northeastern Clinton on March 27th.
