In the last per­iod, the Ban­dits were still trai­ling be­hind by one goal when they tied the game 5-5. An ex­tra per­iod was then re­qui­red. Vincent Har­ris took charge for Cum­ber­land, sco­ring the game’s win­ning goal in over­time. The other goals for Cum­ber­land were sco­red by Ja­cob Kwiat­kows­ki, two goals, Matt Ha­me­lin, Ni­cho­las Be­dard and Re­mi Le­clerc, one goal each.
