Phil Bushbacher scored off a pass from Gustav Lindgren at the 7:36 mark of the second to trim the margin to 3-1. The Vikings cut the lead to 3-2 when William Thoren scored on the power play off an assist from Scurfield with 1:04 left in the second.

The Lakers then got a pair of power-play goals in the first 4:36 of the third period to pull out to a 5-2 advantage. Oswego, which went 4-for-9 on the power play, added a pair of goals in the final 5:41 to seal the win.
