Gwynedd led 1-0 in the first before four goals registered, sandwiched around a Knight tally, in the last five minutes of the period.

GM got the ball really rolling in the second quarter, starting the period a man-down and would find later themselves down another man due to a penalty.

Roy Bakeoven (Philadelphia, Pa./Archbishop Ryan), Hetland again, and Mason Risner (Lancaster, Pa./Hempfield) also added goals to help the Griffins lead 8-1 at the half.
