The Roos doubled their lead five minutes later when Tyler Ralph put home his fourth goal of the season redirecting a Josh Sova shot out in front. Zach Pease also earned a helper on the play.

Bullard added a second Canton power play goal when he made a great move through traffic backhanding his fourth goal of the season into the back of the net. Ben Beasley earned an assist on the score. Canton held a 17-7 shots advantage in the second period taking a 3-0 lead into second intermission.

The Wildcats pulled the goalie late as Victor Carlsson scored with the extra attacker for the 3-1 final.
