Olympics early misses proved costly as John Mackay opened the scoring for Stopout with a sweet strike around the twenty minute mark. Minutes later the boys in blue were down to ten men as Jamie O'Connor was sent for retaliating after a vigorous challenge.

The second half started basically the same way as the first, with Olympic dominating and creating chances. This time Olympic were the team to score first as Mickey Malivuk's hard work up front eventually paid off as he slotted home a third for
