Fargo jumped on the Lancers quickly once again in the second period thanks to a goal with some nifty stickhandling work by JP Burkemper to regain the Force lead 2-1. Ryan Massa remained in the net for the 2nd period stopping 10 more Omaha shots.
The Lancers got on the board quickly in the third on a tic-tac-toe play on the power play finished off by Troy Power with assists from Ryan Daugherty and Nick Oddo. Chase Grant would answer on a feed from Colten St. Clair less than three minutes later to regain the lead yet again for the Force. Grant's goal would be the eventual game winner after Matt Leitner would net another couple of goals (one empty-netter) to finish off the scoring for the Force and send the Lancers home for the season. Ryan Massa stopped another 10 shots in the third and stopped 27/28 in the 5-2 Force win.
The Force will now compete in their second Clark Cup Finals in their second year in the league. This time they hope the outcome is a little better against the Green Bay Gamblers after losing to the Indiana Ice in four games in the '09 Finals.
