Carman narrowed the gap to 4-3 just a minute later on a shorthanded goal by Brock Vanderveen. Dylan Kelly added an insurance marker for the Aces with 1:15 remaining.  

Pat Normandeau opened the scoring for the Aces in the first. Guy St. Vincent picked up the win for the Aces in net making 17 saves as Ste. Anne outshot the Beavers 41-20. Carman won the SEMHL championship this season.
