Skating on home ice, Minnetonka (11-1-2) jumped out to an early lead. Bobby Brink feathered a pass to defenseman Andrew Hicks, who opened the scoring just 1:24 into the game.

Worth's first of the game had the score tied 1-1 through one period.  An Austin Jouppi goal and Worth's second had the Greyhounds (8-0-3) up 3-1 through two periods.

Luke Loheit's power play goal pulled Minnetonka within  3-2 7:19 into the third, but East's Nick Lanigan closed it out for the 'Hounds with about four minutes left in regulation.

East goalie Lukan Hanson made 19 saves in the win.  Tonka's Charlie Glockner had 23 saves.
