Battling back in the final frame the Voodoos pulled back to within one on tallies supplied by Jeremy St. Pierre at 4:19 and Garry Mindus four and a half minutes later.

Kirkland Lake’s Ryan Swain would however add some insurance at 11:13 to round out the scoring.

Shots on goal in the contest favoured the Gold Miners 26-20 with Devon Debastos picking up the win and Ondrovic the less.
