The NWT picked-up where they left off, pressuring the U22s with precise passing and a solid forecheck.  Mid-way through the first, the U22s got into penalty trouble and the NWT Capitalized as Gillian Apps re-directed a pass from the point to make 3-0 for the NWT.  Not long after, with a scramble in from of goaltender Brittony Chartier, Sunohara who was left all alone, lifted the puck over the fallen bodies in to the net giving the NWT a commanding 4-0 lead going into the third period.

The NWT applied relentless pressure in the third and put the game out of reach for the U22s. Gina Kingsbury scored two goals for the hat trick as the NWT defeated the U22s 6-0.
