Early in the second half, Maverick Secours scored for Atlantic Coast to force a tie.

* The Yale Jr. Bulldogs and Mid-Fairfield National skated to a spirited 3-3 deadlock. Indy Grossbard fired home a pair of goals for Yale, including the game-tying goal just 27 seconds after Mid-Fairfield's Luke Dow gave his team the lead. Grossbard also assisted on Stefano Pietrantonio's goal. Ryan Hedley and Easton Kinsler also had goals for Mid-Fairfield.
