The score was tied six times and the lead changed three times. The Red Raiders scored first with back to back goals from TJ Hendricks and Dylan DeLorme. The Titans were held scoreless for the first 9 minutes before Travis Ford scored two goals to end the quarter and send the game tied into the second quarter (2-2).

Ford scored another goal, this time assisted by Nick Mabe, to give the Titans their first lead of the game. The Red Raiders came back quickly to tie the game with Spencer Bell scoring unassisted. The teams traded goals again before Fairport scored again to re-take the lead from Thomas. With 3:12 remaining in the half, Fairport led 5-4. Thomas finished out the quarter with Pierce Currie assisting Brad Smith to tie the game just 1:07 before halftime.

In the second half, Thomas took control of the pacing of the game. They opened the half with two more goals (scoring three in a row for the second time in the contest); Currie and Ford scored. Once again the teams traded goals before Fairport scored two in a row to tie the game at 9-9 right before the final quarter. The game was decided in the fourth quarter with Thomas scoring three and Fairport only scoring two. The Titans took their final lead with 6:06 remaining (11-10) with an unassisted goal from Smith.

Fairport, who was 3-1 four games ago, have dropped the last four to sit at 3-5. They face St. Joe's on Saturday and look to break their recent slump. The Titans, at 5-4, have won their last two contests and look to take that momentum into their match against Canandaigua next week.
