Also scoring the second-period goal for the Xpress was Joshua Bostic, assisted by Rajamaki and Hunter Kepple.

Goal scorers for the Vengeance were Cam Williams (two), Dominick Glavach and Gavin Cummings. Assists belonged to James Unger, Austin Martz, Cummings (two),  Ryan Loebig, Vincent Casale, Glavach and Williams.
