It was going to be a tough final period for the Marquette Redmen if they had any hope of making a comeback. Things looked bleak, but there was still time on the clock. The Redmen did everything they could to fight back, but a freak accident ended the game early. On a hit that rattled the boards, a pane of glass fell out of the boards right behind the Calumet goal. After a minor delay, it was determined that there was no replacement, so the game was called with just over eight minutes remaining.

Final Game Score:
Marquette Redmen: 1
Calumet Copper Kings: 6
