In the third quarter the Cyclones took control of the game scoring four goals in succession. Once again Gardner would help the Knights respond by notching another goal in an effort to keep the Knights close. Headed into the fourth quarter the Knights found themselves down 8-3.
The Knights would make a great push in the fourth quarter but their effort would fall short of victory. Gardner would score twice for the Knights. Sandwiched in between those goals would be freshmen standout Justin Mailloux's goal. But it would be there that the Knights run would stop.
