Dave Fischbach struck twice early for the Archers, first when he dazzled with a toe drag, then when he and Jason Fischbach had an odd man rush on which Jason saucer passed to Dave, who slapped in for 2-0 Danger Zoners. Val Fuchs' hold meant the Archers would be shorthanded, but it didn't matter due to Ben "King Ghidorah" Ghiano playing it to Roger "Ramjet" Whittaker, who flung a speedy puck to Jason, who did the rest, finishing with a banger off the post, and the lead was now 3-0. The Hooligans would find a bit of a respite when late in the first period, rookie Joe Hutchison scored from Joe Allen and Chris Vitale to gather momentum at the end of the period.
Now down 3-1, the Hooligans were testing Matt Pietrowski, but they could not get beat him, especially when Dave Politowski and Dave Leong tried a fancy setup. On the other end, Chris Taormina would negate any momentum of the Rioters, and would score on a wrister through traffic. Taormina wasn't done, and would assist the next Archers goal, working it to Kyle Fischbach in stride, which ended with Fischbach going top shelf, and it was now 5-1 going into the third.
The Archers did well to suck the life out of the remainder of the contest, with neither team really doing much in what became a slog. The only goal of the third would come right before the end, an Archers goal (and short handed when Pete Sztankovtis was assessed a rough) as Kyle Fischbach would notch his second in a 6-1 win.
Dave and Kyle Fischbach (each with 2G) would win the Buffalo Wild Wings Man of the Match Award.
