Following a scoreless second period, Belleville’s Cole Reinhardt scored a power-play tally at 8:43 followed by an empty-net goal from Scott Sabourin at 13:03 to push the score to 5-0. Carson Meyer broke the Senators shutout bid at 14:42 off feeds from Jake Christiansen and Tyler Sikura, but Belleville’s Parker Kelly responded with a marker at 17:57. Brendan Gaunce converted on the man advantage at 19:27 with helpers from Meyer and Thomas Schemitsch, but the Monsters late effort fell short with the final score landing at 6-2.
