Riverview took the lead into halftime.

Clear Creek quickly answered with two goals in the second half. The Bobcats chipped the ball just past Riverview's goalie to tie the game with 23:20 gone in the second half.

Less than 3 minutes later, Clear Creek scored again with 20:38 remaining in the game to take a 2-1 lead.

Despite a couple of chances to tie the game, time ran out on the Eagles.
