The second game was a close, low-scoring duel between the Stars and Delano at the River Lakes Arena in Richmond on Friday.

Delano took a 1-0 lead in the first period on a power-play goal.

The only goal for the Stars was by Brett Theisen in the second period.

Delano got the win, though, scoring another goal to win 2-1.

Adam Hartfiel's thoughts on the game were as follows: "Delano was a close game, but they barely came out on top."
