Antelope 11-10 Pull Love
After a couple of unexpected results, this was a very important match. If Pull Love won, the six participating teams would be in the same position in the standings. But, if Antelope were victorious, they would automatically earn a spot in the semis. The game very even until the fourth chukker, when Antelope outscored their opponents 4-1.
