However, the Outlaws would go on a nine-goal run that stretched into the second quarter and included two more goals from Matthews as well as two from Chris Bocklet for a 13-1 advantage. The Hounds finally put an end to the run when Jeremy Boltus ripped a 2-pointer with 2:05 left in the half to bring the score to 13-3 heading into halftime.

After 10 minutes of scoreless play to start the third quarter, Jovan Miller tallied the Hounds second straight goal, to reduce the Outlaws lead to 13-4. However, Mundorf quickly responded with his third goal of the game to get the Outlaws back the 10 goal lead. Drew Snider and Terry Kimener would also score for the Outlaws to take a 16-4 lead with 1:06 left in the quarter. Kevin Kaminski added a goal for the Hounds with 18 seconds to go to finish the third down 16-5.

The Outlaws started the fourth quarter with a four goal run, including a second goal from Jeremy Sieverts and third from Bocklet, for the 20-5 advantage with 11:46 left to go in the game.
