The first period was evenly matched, with the Force going shot for shot with the Storm. Lynden Breen started the scoring off for the Force with a beautiful backhand that slipped by the Storm goalie.
In the second period, the Storm scored two early goals and kept the pressure on during the whole period.
In the third period, the Force were unable to capitalize, and the Storm flipped one in the empty net as time expired. Final: Force 1, Storm 3.
