The second goal of the game was scored by Cannoneer’s Tanner Docteur, and was assisted by Edward Goodall. Soon after, Aaron Zehr scored another goal for the Cannoneers pushing them in the lead. Determined to find the lead again, McArthur found the back of the net for the second Laker goal of the game. He went unassisted on his second of the game.
