After a scoreless second period, that saw both sides have quality chances, the Pilots scored again while playing four-on-four. The second goal came early in the third period off a sudden Topeka rush.
Though the Jackalopes pushed hard, and had a two-on-zero to boot, they could not beat Mclean Dorr the Topeka netminder.
