For the fourth consecutive time against Ontario this season, the Rampage registered the opening goal when forward A.J. Greer found the back of the net at the 5:38 mark on a centering pass from J.T. Compher and Mat Clark. Ontario tied the game at one just 59 seconds later when LaDue scored an unassisted goal at 6:37. The Reign followed with a second unassisted goal at 12:55 when Daniel Ciampini forced a Rampage turnover and slipped the puck past San Antonio's Spencer Martin. The Rampage battled back to tie the game two before the intermission when Compher knocked home a loose puck 14:50 into the period.
Ontario regained the lead 9:27 into the second frame when Teddy Purcell recorded his seventh of the season. Kurt MacDermid extended Ontario’s lead to two when his shot from the point deflected off the top of Martin's glove and landed in the net, giving the Reign a 4-2 lead after 40 minutes.
Sergei Boikov pulled the Rampage within a goal with 24.7 seconds left in regulation but San Antonio couldn't net the equalizer.
