Grant led all scorers with five goals and two assists. Cory Bomberry was one of four Knighthawks to score twice, but also set up four tallies to finish with six points.

Powless scored the game's first goal, and finished with five tallies. Spencer Martin scored both of his goals in the first quarter to bring Columbus from a 2-1 deficit to a 3-2 lead.

Pat O'Toole stopped 41 Columbus shots to post the win in goal. Chris Levis turned away 40 in the losing effort.
