The Mustangs added two goals in the second to build a 3-2 lead of their own heading to the third. Melbourne could not hold that one-goal lead as the Adrenaline took a 4-3 lead mid-way through the final period. It took a Melbourne goal by Jack McCoy to tie the score at 4 all and force overtime.

Rick Perry earned the “W” for Adelaide when he stopped all three shooters for the Mustangs in the shootout. In total, Perry stopped 28 of 32 shots.
