Austin would answer on the scoreboard however when Chris Tamer threw a puck toward the net that hit off a stick on the ice and went in. Aberdeen would respond early in the 3rd period when Clayton Cosentino lit the lamp with Aughe & Murphy assisting. The Bruins Shudy was able to put in a rebound to once again tie the game midway through the 3rd period. The score would remain tied through regulation and the 5 minute overtime period.
