Both teams fought hard through 30 minutes of the scoreless overtime to bring the result down to penalty kicks. Voyagers' #14 Mason Kosik, #16 Caleb Futrell, and #10 Cole Scarantino banged home penalty shots, however Hobbton converted one more shot than Voyager to seal the win, and dash the Vikings' hopes of advancing to the Sweet 16.
