In the second period a goal from James Parsons and another from Furnival put the dragons well on the way to winning with a score of 5-2. After a 3rd goal from Blackburn, coach Lol Paul pulled Matthew Compton from the net and replaced him with netminder George Cox. After a quick period adjustment (letting in 1 Eagle puck) Cox began to block shots like a brick wall. With the net secure, Palak was given some space to put another in the Eagles net taking the score to 6-4 at the end of the 2nd period.Into the 3rd period and the Dragons confidence was running high. 3 more goals added to the board by Adrian Palak giving him his 2nd hat trick of the game. Unfortunately within the final 2 minutes of the game, Filip Supa went down with a serious injury to the knee, requiring assistance from the ice by team mates. With the dragons on the powerplay, the Eagles managed to put a final puck past Cox taking the score to 9-5 to Deeside. All in all a very exciting game to watch and with that result it meant the Dragons were then to face local rivals Widnes Wild, on the Sunday in the Playoff final.
After the success of the semi-final against Blackburn Eagles, the Dragons were looking to carry on their winning streak.
The 2nd period saw another 2 goals from Simon Furnival and Filip Supa which took the dragons 2 goals clear of the Wild. After a slashing penalty awarded to Widnes player/coach Mckenzie, Owen Bennett took to the ice to dole out some retribution but was instantly sent to the box for delay and misconduct gaining a 2+10.
Onto the 3rd period and despite plenty of shots on both goals, the netminders were holding the scores blocking and freezing every puck for the majority of the final period. It was only at 58 minutes than Widnes player managed to get a puck past netminder George Cox due to a busy net area and some messy passes near the goal. This took the game to 4-3 to the dragons. Seeing an opportunity to finish the 60 minutes on a draw Widnes took the decision to relieve their netminder David Good (on loan from Hull Jets). This allowed an extra player to attack Deesides defence, but to no avail as Adrian Palak managed to take a shot at the empty goal from the far end of the neutral zone. This goal wasnâ€™t to be as it hit the right hand side of the post, slighty disappointing but Palak managed to get the puck once again seconds later and put the puck awayÂ making the score 5-3 at exactly the 59th minute. Widnes knew it was over at this point and sent David Good back to the net for the final dying minute. The score at the end of the buzzer was 5-3 meaning the Deeside Dragons have â€˜â€™done the doubleâ€™â€™, winning the Laidler Conference trophy and the Laidler Playoff trophy
