The Highlanders added to the lead when Zach Shilvock scored after grabbing the ball after a cluster in front of the Pioneer net. Darcy Mitchell and Caleb Kaiss scored in the final five minutes to add insurance to the Houghton lead.

Caleb Loew made two saves in net to earn the victory for Houghton.
