A turnover by Colton White deep in the Greyhounds end seemed to get the ball rolling for the Saginaw Spirit as Artem Artemov would put the puck behind Joseph Raaymakers at 7:57 of the first period.
With a scoreless second period Saginaw would jump out to a two goal lead with a goal by Devon Paliani. Just over a minute later the Greyhounds pulled within one on a goal by Zachary Senyshyn assisted by Medric Mercier and Gabe Guerler.
The Spirit regained their two goal cushion less than a minute later with Greg DiTomaso getting the credit for the goal.
Saginaw would add one more with Connor Brown getting a power play goal while Boris Katchouk was in the penalty box for High Sticking.
Raaymakers would head to the bench with less that 3 minutes left in the period in which the Spirit would add an empty net goal at 17:39 by Tye Felhaber.
