Mississauga went into the first intermission up 3-0.

In the second period, Mississauga ran away with the game as they scored three more times as both James Hardie and Luca DelBelluz scored their second goals of the game. Owen Beck also got on the scoresheet in the period.

Mississauga put the nail in Kingston's coffin going up 7-0 by a goal from Charlie Callaghan. Kasper Larsen had himself a night as well as he picked up three assists. 

Kingston would score twice in the third period ending Joe Ranger's shutout as Francesco Arcuri and Maddox Callens scored for the Frontenacs.
