Ryan Lasalvia and Patrick Hoffman each scored two goals as HLV defeated Shawnee 7-2 and have gone through the tournament undefeated at 3-0 and will now await the winner from the losers’ bracket. Having just won 6 games all season HLV has caught fire at the right time. Averaging less than three goals during the regular season, HLV is averaging five goals in their three wins and during the regular season they would give up an average of five goals per game but in the playoffs in three games have surrendered a total of just five goals. Matt Saavas got things going for HLV scoring at the seven minute mark to put them up 1-0. Ryley Bergeson would tie the game at 1-1 for Shawnee scoring on the power play just over two minutes later.

Goals by Alec Warner and Lasalvia late in the period gave HLV the lead for good at 3-1. Nick DelPrato scored in the opening two minutes to push the lead to 4-1 before Cody Charyk would score short-handed to cut the deficit to 4-2. Lasalvia would make it 5-2 in the final seconds of the period and HLV was in control. Two power play goals by Hoffman in the third period closed out the scoring and HLV moves on.
