Team USA opened the match on top thanks to a goal from Josh Samuels (Villa Park, CA/UCLA/NYAC) but a rejuvenated Serbia squad responded. Bolstered by the return of Andrija Prlainovic, Filip Filipovic, and Dusko Pijetlovic, Serbia kept pace with Team USA in the first. Dusan Mandic connected to tie the match at 2-2 and Prlainovic connected on his first goal of the series to give Serbia a 3-2 lead after the first. They kept the attack up in the second period building a 5-2 lead before Team USA began to chip away. Alex Roelse (Maarssen, Netherlands/UCLA/Bruin) scored one of his two goals to make it 5-3 and Alex Bowen (Santee, CA/Stanford/Stanford) followed with a score with under a minute to play in the half to draw Team USA within one at 5-4. After Serbia retook a two goal lead, Jackson Kimbell (Long Beach, CA/Stanford/Newport) found the back of the net right before half to leave Serbia ahead just one at 6-5.

Much like Thursday night in Riverside, the third quarter belonged entirely to Team USA. Moses and the defense held Serbia scoreless while Team USA mustered three straight goals, two from John Mann(Newport Beach, CA/California/NYAC) to take an 8-6 lead going to the fourth. The one goal Mann didn't score, he drew a penalty, allowing Tony Azevedo (Long Beach, CA/Stanford/NYAC) to hit.

That set the stage for the back and forth action in the final eight minutes. Roelse scored his second goal to put Team USA up 9-7 with 4:13 to play only to see Serbia score three straight to take a 10-9 lead. Prlainovic scored two of the goals as Serbia roared back into the match. After Prlainovic's final goal with 1:13 remaining all that was left was Cupido saving the day with two tallies in the final minute.

Both teams struggled on the power play with Team USA going 5/17 and Serbia just 3/11. Team USA went 1/1 on penalty shots while Serbia did not attempt a penalty shot.

In front of a standing room only, sell out crowd at the University of Illinois, Chicago, Team USA emerged a 14-13 winner in a physical finale to the common training series.

Team USA started off the second quarter strong with goals by Alex Bowen (Santee, CA/Stanford/Stanford) and Bonanni, his second of the game, giving the United States a 4-2 lead early. With less than three minutes remaining Serbia's Mandic and Subotic made it 4-4. USA's Cupido regained a 5-4 lead for his team but Serbia answered with two quick goals making it 6-5 Serbia at the half.
Connor Virjee's (Rolling Hills, CA/USC/Trojan) first goal of the game evened the score at six early in the third quarter and Bonanni then capitalized on a 5-meter penalty shot to pull the USA ahead 7-6. Serbia's Filip Filipovic answered on a man up advantage to tie the game back up at seven. Virjee, Cupido, and Bonanni each followed with a goal a piece giving the USA a three goal lead with 3:33 remaining.
