Isobel Cup Semi-Finals Recap – Metropolitan Riveters v. Minnesota Whitecaps

#3 Metropolitan Riveters v. #2 Minnesota Whitecaps

 

Game Recap:

In Minnesota the Whitecaps would host the Metropolitan Riveters for the first Isobel Cup Semi-Final matchup. In the first period it would be a very tightly contested period with both teams trading chances and powerplays to try to take the lead, but both Sam Walther and Amanda Leveille would be up to the task to keep the game scoreless.

 

In the second period the Whitecaps would outshoot the Riveters 12-4, but it would be Walther with highlight reel save after highlight reel save as both teams would remain scoreless as they head into the second intermission.

 

Then in the third period both teams would continue to trade chances and powerplay opportunities, but this game continues to remain scorless thanks to the work of Walther and Leveille as this game now heads into overtime.

 

Then in overtime it would be co-MVP Allie Thunstrom picking up the garbage in front of the Riveters net to give the Whitecaps the 1-0 victory and will move on to defend their crown in the Isobel Cup Championship next weekend.
