Leominster's Matthew LaVanway finally got them on the board (assisted by Matthew Richard) for a 4-1 Shrewsbury lead.

In the third period, the Blue Devils tallied first, with Richard scoring (assisted by Ryan Leger and LaVanway) but the Colonials scored another three times, first O’Keefe (unassisted), then Adam Twitchell (assisted by Derric Dell’Olio and Joe Buduo) and finally Jack Quinlivan (unassisted) to make the final score 7-2 Shrewsbury.
