Captain Connor Driscoll opened the scoring at the 11:23 mark in the first period. His powerplay goal was assisted by Alexander Siletsky and Sett Ursomarzo. The Menace took that 1-0 lead into the first intermission.

Milton led 3-2 after 40-minutes of action.
In the third period, the Menace ran away with the game. Driscoll potted his second of the game and his tenth goal of the season. It was assisted by Graeme Macauley and Justin O’Donnell. To put the bow on the game, Wereha buried an empty netter, assisted by Fabjan. Milton beat Haliburton County 5-2.
