Ellis found himself on the scoring end of a pass from Andrade in the first 30 seconds of the third period as the FlexJet lead grew to three goals, 6-3.  Obregon answered back with a goal from the field following a 140-yard run, 6-4.  Astrada converted a 40-yard penalty shot for a goal, 7-4, with Obregon answering back in kind with a penalty goal of his own, 7-5.  Astrada pushed the FlexJet lead back to three goals after taking the ball from end to end for a goal to make it 8-5 with 1:16 left in the period. Obregon responded for Palm Beach Illustrated by scoring on a 60-yard penalty shot to end the first half with FlexJet on top, 8-6.

The Palm Beach Illustrated’s defense stepped it up in the fourth chukker, allowing just a single goal on a 30-yard penalty shot from Astrada.  Dorignac countered with a goal from the field for Palm Beach Illustrated, but FlexJet maintained their two goal advantage, 9-7.
