Douglas Royals 3
Langara Falcons 0
After a very even first half which saw both teams exchange shots but no goals the second half was a different story. In that first half the Falcons’ keeper Samantha Seaborn turned away three shots while Royals’ netminder Elisha Machado made one save.
The Royals came out flying in the second half and scored the first goal of the game off the foot of Gracie Quesnelle who lit the lamp in the 47th minute.
The game stayed close until the 80th minute when Taylor Wettig extended the lead with her second of the season. Two minutes later she put the game too far out of reach with her second of the game.
The Royals directed 19 shots towards the goal in the second half with Seaborn making four saves. At the other end Machado was not tested and didn’t have to make a save in the second frame.
