    Despite missing Jesse King, Rhys Duch, Casey Jackson, and Tyler Pace the Shamrocks were able to hold their ground until the end keeping the fans on their feet. Chris Wardle, Larson Sundown, Tyson Gibson, Graeme Hossack, and Chris Boushy scored the five goals for the Rocks as they played a more defensive game due to lack of offensive power. Shawn Evans, Kyle Buchanan, Thomas Hoggarth, Cory Vitarelli, Kiel Matisz, Holden Cattoni, Turner Evans,
    Mark Matthews, Jordan Stouros, Chad Tutton were the goal scorers for Petersborough.
