Patriots’ KlaytonHoelscher was able to get one past Bulldogs goaltender Ethan Primeau on a power play at 4:41 to make the score 1-0 for the Patriots.

The Bulldogs lost some momentum in the second period and were outshot 15-7 by Mount Forest. Hoelscher came into score early for the Patriots, just one minute in, to make it 2-0. Despite chances at both ends of the ice neither team was able to make them count until Hoelscher earned a hat trick with a short-handed goal at 17:09.
