Ontario got their only goal of the night at 8:15 in the second period.  As an Alaska player tried to clear the puck out of the zone, center Tim Kraus picked up the puck, spun around and shot the puck past Alaska net minder Billy Sauer.  Right wings Jon Rheault and Tony Voce picked up the assists on the power play goal.

In the third period, the Reign had some great opportunities to score but could not put the puck past Sauer.  Ontario pulled Curtis Darling for an extra skater with less than a minute to go in the third.  Ontario was unable to capitalize with the extra attacker and Alaska took their second win in a row against the Reign, with a final score of Aces 2, Reign 1.
