The Blue Devils had to fight hard against the Red Devils for their win at home, with Lancaster scoring early in the game. Mathews later came back and junior P.J. Johnson scored for the Blue Devils’ first goal. The second half remained scoreless as both teams fought for the advantage. During overtime, junior Justin Jenkins scored Mathews’ second goal for the win.
