Overall, the Blue Devils played well, but were unable to keep up with Fairport's high powered offense and exceptional goalie play. Joey Scalise finished with 15 saves for the Red Raiders, including a number of point blank saves that were totally unexpected. One of the highlights for Victor was face-off midfielder TD Ierlan. He, once again, demonstrated his skill at the draw, finishing 17/21 (81%) and picked up his own ground ball nine times. Offensively, midfielder Jamie Trimboli had a strong game and finished with 2g-1a.

For Victor, Trimboli scored the lone goal after picked up a loose ball on the crease. Victor scored the last two goals of the second quarter to keep the game within one going into halftime.

With 8:54 remaining in the third quarter, the score was a close as it would get (5-5). The Red Raider scored the next five unanswered goals. Four of their five goals were scored during man-up as the Blue Devils could not stay out of the penalty box and Fairport's man up unit was too effective.
