At the end of 60 minutes the game was knotted at 2 – 2 and overtime was required. Approximately 10 minutes into the extra frame Williams Lake scored with a nice shot beating Michael Wall making the final score 3-2 for Williams Lake.
Game 2 was in Smithers and saw improved play by the Steelheads who had their most complete roster to the year. Williams Lake scored first but Smithers continued to play hard with relentless pressure on the Stampeders resulting in a 6-3 Steelheads victory.
