Central York scored five of the game's final six goals, including four in the third period.

Wesley Copenheaver scored once in each period to record a hat-trick for the Panthers and was the only player on his team to score more than once. Jacob Nagy and Jordan Kline each had a goal and two assists to match Copenheaver's three-point night, while Sean Barba tallied three assists to match his teammates.

As a team, nine different players recorded at least one point for Central York. The Panthers also peppered L-S goalie Josh Griel with shots, firing 51 on the goal, more than twice as many as the home team.
