The two sides traded shots before the Sting’s Brady Doxey got the equaliser after seven minutes with team-mate Stanislav Lascek finding a way past Sam Hewitt for the go-ahead goal a quarter hour in. By the period end things were back level once more as Filip Supa gave the Barons their second.
A brace of Jonas Fredrikson powerplay goals for Sutton would prove to be the only scoring in the middle period giving the home side a nice little cushion and the Barons a job to do ahead of the final twenty minutes.
