The Steelheads found their legs as the frame went on and into the next period, but the Railers earned two more to triple the advantage, 3-0. The comeback bid began with a breakaway goal from forward Colby McAuley (16:33 2nd) coming out of the penalty box to get on the board, 3-1. Steelheads forward Mason Mitchell (10:24 3rd) added another on the way back on a deflection for a one-goal game, however an added tally by the Railers created enough of a cushion for the 4-2 result.ICCU 3 STARS OF THE GAME1.
