The X-Women opened the scoring in the first period on a goal by Sarah Bujold which was her league leading 20th goal from Garagan & Donovan. The Panthers waited until almost the end of the period before Bria Harding scored on the Powerplay.  

The second period remained a standstill for the teams until Alisha MacDonald scored with just seconds remaining to put the Panthers up 2-1 going into the third. 

In the third period the X-Women tried to break down the Panthers defense but came away without luck as Kaylee Dufresne scored the lone goal of the period into an empty net.
