Then in the second period both teams would strike on the powerplay as Audra Richards would tie the game at one for the Whitecaps, but Leary would strike again on the powerplay to retake the one goal lead for the Riveters. In the third period Allie Thunstrom would score for the Whitecaps to tie the game at two and send the game to overtime. After a scoreless overtime period it would be Tatiana Shatalova with the game winner in the shootout. Sam Walther would stop 40 of 42 shots faced to secure the 3-2 victory for the Riveters.
