The Bugs got on the board at 15:24 when Jake Mack squeezed in his 11th tally of the year from the far side to give Shreveport a 1-0 edge. Evan Mitchell and Connor Gatto earned the helpers. The Rhinos would even the score at 16:19 off a penalty shot from Bo Cosman who backhanded home his 10th goal of the season to make it a 1-1 contest. The Bugs led in SOG, 13-9 after one.
