Faced again with a slim lead, the Storm scored two (2) goals to make it a 6-3 game; goal scores were Michael Olson and Trevor Bottermley. With less than three (3) minutes to play, Jason Ricter scored to make it a 6-4 game and then with 45 seconds remaining Jordan Busch scored to make it 6-5. The Storm held on for the 6-5 win in a fitting finish to a memorable Cyclone Taylor Cup final.
