In a back and forth final period, Josh Supryka scored to bring the Maroons within two points, but London countered with a goal 15 seconds later. Chatham continued to fight back with Steven Fowler scoring 10:49 into the third, but the Nationals scored one final unanswered goal before the end of the game to cap off their win.

The Nationals out shot the Maroons 47-27.
