In the second the Jackalopes’ Patrick Dawson would score just 40 seconds into the frame with assists from Herbster and Heintz to take a two goal lead. Lone Star would kill off an extended five on three power play for Odessa.

Herbster scored is second of the night at 4:15 of the third on the power play. Kellen Tharaldson and Connor Fedorek registered assists on the play. Moments after the Herbster goal, the Brahmas would be hit with a five minute major due to a Gino Lucia fighting major and instigator minor. Odessa would manage to convert one time on the man advantage with Connor Smith putting it past Harrison Feeney on assists from Herbster and Fedorek. The goal chased Feeney from net with Seth Eisele going the rest of the way.

Shots on goal were 33-26 in favor of the Jackalopes. Odessa went 2-8 on the power play while Lone Star was 0-5.
