Two and a half minutes later the Golden Eagles were at it again, Jordan Renaud found the back of the net with assists from Shane Visnick and Danny Rock. Brockport would make it three unanswered goals in the first period as Renaud tucked in his second of the night with five minutes remaining assisted by Ryan Romeo. The Golden Eagles headed into the locker room with a three-goal lead.

Brockport continued their dominance to start the second period as Danny Rock scored the Golden Eagles fourth goal of the game three and a half minutes in. The Red Dragons narrowed the score to three goals on the PP with five minutes remaining in the period. Brockport answered the Cortland goal two minutes later, Tyler Williams scored the Green and Gold's fifth goal of the night assisted by Connor Hutchins and Ethan Solat.

The Red Dragons started the third period with a powerplay opportunity but the Golden Eagles PK unit stood tall, holding the Cortland attackers to a single shot. The two teams skated to a scoreless third period. Brockport senior netminder, Jake Moore had another stellar outing making 21 saves on the night.
