At 10:48, Lexi Bonneville found her way onto the score board with a shot assisted by Raechel Painovich and Abby Painovich. Lexi Bonneville, with the assists from Ellie Anderson and Chloe Gamst ,would again score at 8:55, giving the Rebels a 5-0 lead.

The Storm would find a second wind and start to come alive as the Storm's Gracie Komarek with assists from Nevaeh Roswold and Callie Klemmer put the Storm on the board at 8:25. The Storm's Jessie Ketola scored unassisted at 7:12. At :47, Jessie Ketola would again score with the assist by Rheo Johnson.

Things got all tied up in the third period. At 15:37, the Storm tied the score with Jessie Ketola with an assist from Gracie Komarek, scoring her fourth point for the night. It would be a shooting match for most of the third period having both goalies working hard to keep their teams in the hunt for the win. Abby Painovich scored the hat trick, unassisted at 3:29 in the third period to put the Rebels up 6-5. The Storm would not go down without a fight, as the Rebels went down a player late in the period when Ellie Anderson would go to the penalty box for a check on the Storm. The Storm would then pull their goalie giving them a six on four advantage, but the advantage would not last long as the Storm would be called for the high stick, bringing the puck to the Storm's end of the ice forcing them to bring their goalie back in and sending a player to the penalty box evening the match up.

The Rebels held their ground for the win; Moose Lake Area 6, North Shore 5. The Storm would attack with 32 shots on goal with Rebels Jo Wekseth making 27 saves. The Rebels would have 21 shots on goal with the Storm's Lilka Mojkowski making 15 saves. Both teams were sent to the penalty box seven times each.
