Nick Oliver started the scoring off for the Force in the second period on the power play on a nice tic-tac-toe play from Eamonn McDermott to Corey Leivermann to Nick Oliver who buried it to make it 1-0. Garrett Allen extended the Force lead with a spin-o-rama backhander on a nice feed from Matt Leitner. Matt Bailey would put the Herd on the board on a shot over Massa's glove to cut the Force lead in half.
Chase Grant would finish the game off with an empty netter to make it a 3-1 final with the Force sweeping the series 3-0 and giving the Force a 9-0 all-time record in the West Division playoffs. The Force will now take on the Omaha Lancers in the West Division championship for a chance to get into the Clark Cup finals.
