Petaccio's goal came with 2:27 left in the first period, with Eric Salzillo and Ryan Marker assisting. Marker's assist would be his first SPHL point, in his second game since being called up from the Danville Dashers. The Bolts would score again early in the second period, as Pijus Rulevicius doubled up the lead at 1:08 from Salzillo and Brandon Tucker.

The lead would stick, and Huntsville would hold on to win 3-2.
