The St. Louis Jr. Blues' offense had a big night, peppering the Dayton Falcons with 53 shots throughout the game, to go along with Blake Bjella's shutout. The St. Louis Jr. Blues took the lead before the halfway point in the first on a goal from Joe Papa and never looked back.
Joe Papa chipped in with 2 goals and Dylan Carroll did his part, adding 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist).
