The first period of the game, the puck was dancing between the Negaunee and Escanaba territories as both teams were fighting for control. Peyton Anderson, of the Miners, was the first to score in the game with a shot that went right over the Eskymos blocker! Escanaba scored two more times after that and at the end of the first period the Miners were trailing by two. The shots at the end of the first period were 18-9 in favor of the Eskymos.

Action in the second period leaned more towards the Eskymos favor. Escanaba had all of the momentum while Negaunee was almost backed against the wall with their penalty kills.
