The first puck hit the net of the Latvian team in the second period. The referees of the match watched the moment for a long time and still admitted the goal. The goal scorer was Dmitry Kugryshev. However, the rivals went to the second break with an equal score. The hosts achieved success with the help of an accurate throw of Nerijus Alisauskas from the blue line — 1: 1.
The final twenty minutes at the Arena Riga did not bring a scored goal. The outcome of the meeting was decided by the same Kugryshev.
