Will Parreaguirre and Will Mench had helpers on the Sippel goal.

For his efforts, Boyles was named the Wright Automotive Player of the Game by the North Allegheny Sports Network.

Parreaguirre was called for a tripping minor at 11:39 of the third period as the Indians had one last chance to get back into the game.
