After a Broome goal tied the game 4:37 into the second period, the Vikings responded to retake the lead 2-1 after two periods on a goal by freshman Sean Caruso (Waterford/LaSalle Institute).

Broome would tie the game at 2-2, 54 seconds into the third period on a goal by freshman defenseman Glenn Woodard (Newark Valley High School). However, Hudson Valley would get the next three goals by freshman Tom Phibbs (Troy/LaSalle Institute), and sophomores Steve Passineau (East Greenbush/Columbia High School) and Dane Anderson (Newburgh/Newburgh Free Academy) to secure the win.
