Carlo Finucci thought he had given Flyers the lead at 14:36 only to see his shot hit the post, but Brendan Brooks was on hand to put the rebound in the net and give Fife the opening goal of the game.

Flyers extended their lead to 2 goals when Sebastien Thinel converted on the powerplay at 27:40 after Jacob Johnston had been sent to the penalty box for hooking.

Edinburgh pulled a goal back in the dying seconds of the 2nd period when Michael D'Orazio put the puck beyond Shane Owen in the Fife net.

Into the final period and Edinburgh pushed to tie the game however it was Fife who got the next goal of the game as Ric Jackman made it 3-1 at 46:36.

Karel Hromas brought it to a 1 goal game at 52:32. As Edinburgh pushed to tie the game and with Travis Fullerton pulled for the extra attacker, Ryan Dingle secured the win for Fife with an empty net goal timed at 58:37 to secure a 4-2 win for Fife.
