The Kodiaks were up 1-0 at the start of the second after Brandon Dolby scored at 17:40 of the first, assisted by Maximilian Fritz and William Mann.

The Flames scored twice in the second before Kodiak Dylan Geiger scored, assisted by Nolan Wallinger and Dryden West to even it up. However, the Flames closed the second period with one more to put them up 3-2.

The Kodiaks scored three times in the third period, but the Flames closed the period with two more to set the overtime play.

Scorers for Aldergrove were Jordan Funk from Cameron Davitt and Joshua Poitras, and the two power plays by Elvis Jansons from Eric Callegari and Davit, and by Callegari from Davitt and Poitras.
