In the third period, the Texan team exerted pressure, with Renato Torquato narrowing the gap to one goal at 4-3 with a breakaway goal. However, Erick Tovar scored a goal to secure the lead for Chihuahua, followed by Hugo "Roca" Puentes and José "Huevo" López, putting the home team ahead 7-3. In a thoroughly defined match, Erick Tovar once again added another goal to his personal tally, and Adriano Nunes sealed another victory for Chihuahua Savage, ending the match 9-3. With this result, the Chihuahua team is in second place in the Western Conference with a record of 10 games won and 5 lost, accumulating 29 points and nearing securing a spot in the playoffs.
