Wilkes Barre started the game on the board first but then Lehigh Valley came back with 3 straight goals. The first came at the 22:30 mark by CJ Semet assisted by Matt Miller, the second came from Majed Salama at the 50 minute mark assisted by CJ Semet. Patrick Reilly scored the 3rd goal off a deflection for Lehigh Valley at the 60:15 mark. Wilkes Barre would score again at 65:09 mark but that would not be enough as Lehigh Valley held on for the victory.
Lehigh Valley will travel to LCCC for their make-up game on Friday for a 3:30 PM kick-off.
