The Seattle Thunderbirds (10-1-0-0) got out to a two-goal lead just over a minute into the first period and never looked back. The Thunderbirds doubled up the Prince George Cougars (6-7-0-0) 6-3 at the accesso ShoWare Center.

The Thunderbirds got a pair of goals, 18 seconds apart, just over a minute into the game from Kyle Crnkovic and Reid Schaefer to take an early lead. The Cougars responded with one of their own a few moments later from Caden Brown to make it 2-1. In the final minutes of the first, Schaefer again was able to restore the lead in the final minutes to go up 3-1 after the opening twenty minutes.

In the second period, the Thunderbirds added to their lead around the midway point to go ahead 4-1 after 40 minutes. Gabe Ludwig was the goal scorer for the home side in the second.

In the final period, Jordan Gustafson scored early in the period for Seattle, to up their lead to 5-1. Prince George was able to respond with two of their own with Koehn Ziemmer scoring on a breakaway and Ethan Samson tucking one in on the power-play. The T-Birds, however, were able to seal the deal with a Reid Schaefer empty net goal in the final minute to defeat Prince George 6-3.
