Sidney Powless scored five times for Six Nations including four during the five-goal run. Other goals were netted by Tycie Cowan, Chayton King, Colby Martin and Tayton Skye. Wes Whitlow collected three assists while Mason Hill, Marshall Powless and Justin Martin each had two and King, Riley Laforme-Hess and Tyler Foxe Mackenzie each had one.
Six Nations outshot the Regals 40-38 and went 3-for-8 on their power play while the Regals went 2-for-13.
Calab Martin collected the win in net for Six Nations. He had 21 saves in the first 41:50 of the game before Mike Martin-Abel relieved for the remaining 18:10 and he stopped all 12 shots fired his way. Brady Wilson took the loss for the Regals despite making 31 saves.
