That would prove to be the only Rivermen goal of the evening, with Coquitalm adding two more in the third, one at 16:00 by Greg Lapointe, assisted by Connor Gregga, who teamed up for a second goal and assist just seconds later.

Final score: 4-1 for the Express.

Lapointe was named first star of the game, Giants’ Livingstone was second star and Clay Stevenson was third.
