The visiting Dragons showed no signs of bus legs as the puck was dropped for the first period. Less than a minute in, Petr Valusiak found a way past Graham Laverick via a rebound to open the scoring. Niklas Ottosson levelled things up however within a minute, a close range shot defeating Phillip Pearson. The middle phase of the period would see a number of penalties but it would not be until the thirteenth minute that the scoring deadlock was broken, a Phil Mulcahy cross from the bottom of the left hand circle finding Niklas Ottosson square in the slot to give Solihull their second of the night.
