A penalty by Benny Biniamin put the Cyclones on the kill, but John Schmidt and the PK kept the game tied.

RVC was also without Maxim Torkiver after the centerman was called for a ten minute misconduct in the second frame. The Cyclones and Seahawks traded scoring chances, but neither team could score at 5 on 5 in the final frame. RVC picked up the pace after Torkiver came out of the box, but that sudden surge was short lived. A two and ten for boarding led to the Cyclones center leaving the ice. Sean Ecker scored the power play game winner to put the Seahawks up by 1. The RVC Cyclones went empty net in an effort to tie the game, but the Cold Spring Harbor Seahawks held on to pick up their first win of the campaign.
