Doug Summers with an assist from Chris Seecco got Buchanan on the board first in the 19th minute.
The Bucks extended their lead to 2-0 as Seecco scored an unassisted goal in the 26th minute.
Late in the second half the Chieftains were finally able to find the net as Tony Black cut the lead to 2-1 with an unassisted goal in the 74th minute. Dowagiac tied the score at 2-2 five minutes later when Brandon Zachary scored an unassisted goal.
Dowagiac held a 21-17 advantage in shots on goal according to the Chieftains' charts with both Davey Moran and Buchanan's Josh Wolstrom coming up with 12 saves.
