At the 17:12 mark of the second period, Elmira’s Erin Weston scored a power-play goal on a feed from Ashley Ryan. The teams were tied despite the Panthers’ 13-3 edge in shots during the second period.
At 5:06 of the third period, Weston scored her second goal after a steal in Elmira’s defensive zone that started a 3-on-2 breakout.
Individual efforts by Elizabeth Wulf and Katie Mandigo allowed the Panthers to even the game at 2-2 with 6:41 to play. In the Elmira zone, Wulf came out of a four-person scrum with the puck and sent it to Mandigo. Mandigo curled around the net and beat Nelson far post with a backhand for the game’s final score.
