In the second period, Deven Stillar got the offense going as he converted on Ken Selby's pass on a two-on-one to give the RiverKings a 1-0 lead just 3:58 into the middle frame.

Matthew Robertson tied it up for Pensacola at the 13:21 mark on passes from Tyler Soehner and Hohl and the team's entered the second intermission tied at one.

The third period was all Pensacola. Andrew Harrison scored the go-ahead-goal, unassisted, at the 14:12 mark. Ryan Corry netted the insurance goal on a shot from the point that beat Scott Darling to give Pensacola the 3-1 victory.
