LFA took advantage of Indian penalties in the second period scoring three power-play goals to take a 3-1 lead after two. LFA added two more goals in the third for a 5-1 victory. Peter Baldwin took the loss in net for the Indians.

Sunday morning’s action had Lake Forest jump out to a 2-0 lead, in effect scoring seven unanswered goals against the Soo over two games. Kole Altergott put a stop to that streak and cut the LFA lead in half on a feed by Cole Peterson. Early in the second period, Grady Coppo scored off a pass from Altergott and Kevin Smith to even the score at two-apiece. In the third, Seve LItz beat the LFA goaltender on an assist by Curtis Hubbard and JT Gollinger to put the Indians up 3-2. When LFA put on the extra attacker and left an empty net, Kyle Stevens won a battle for the loose puck and scored securing a 4-2 Indians victory with Goff getting the assist. Cam Labadie earned the win in net for the Indians.
