Nitehawks defenceman McKoy Hauk netted his third of the season, scoring at 17:17 into the second period for what proved to be the winning goal with assists to Dylan Heppler and Blake Sidoni.

Tyler Hartman added a shorthanded marker into an empty net with 1:46 to play. B.V. outshot Fernie 33-28 and went 1-for-5 on the power play while Fernie was 0-for-4.
