After a close first game, the next two teams took to the field and excitement rose as Northern Storm had elected to use their Power-Play from the start. However it would be the Royals to score first through Katie Lehovsky’s solo effort. Northern Storm would go on a run of three goals, including a goal from influential player Laura Merrifield, collecting her own draw to drive to goal and score. Northern Storm would take a commanding lead of 6-2 into the second quarter, leaving the Royals with a steep hill to climb. The Royals used their Power-Play in the third, however Northern Storm used this opportunity to limit the Royals time on the ball as well as capitalising on mistakes to score four more goals.
