Teams battled through a scoreless opening half after scoring opportunities were missed by both sides. The Bulldogs got on the board in the third frame after a successful 40-yard field goal attempt from Colton Theaker capped off a nine-play drive that spanned 57 yards. Theaker completed another attempt from 33-yards out just five minutes later to give AHC a 6-0 lead after a six-play drive.
