Chatham goalie Tristan Lewis left the game after facing just three shots and was replaced with Adam Harris. The Maroons got on the board with a short-handed goal from Cameron Welch. The Legionnaires held a 2-1 lead after the first 20 minutes.

The Maroons tied the score at two-all in the second period when Zach Power lit the lamp. Greg Hay’s power play goal at 14:02 brought the lead back to the Legionnaires but Chatham tied the game again before the intermission with a goal by Kyle Fisher.

There was no scoring in the third period and each side had 11 shots on goal. There was also no scoring in the first overtime period. Bohn’s winner went into the net 90 seconds into the second overtime.
