In almost an carbon copy of the Rosebowl game PV started slow and found themselves down 3 goals to 0 midway through the 1st half. After a handful of shots that found the Redondo goalies stick, the Sea Kings made a run. McKenzie Olsen broke through on a FP shot with 10:15 left, then Brooke Merchant netted another FP, and after the Hawks scored again, with 13 seconds left in the half Sea Kings goalie Lily Vancans made her 4th save and tossed a bomb to midfield where Kendall Hoyt scrambled to pick up the GB, then tossed the outlet to Abbie Merchant who then made 1 more pass to a wide open Emily Typrowicz who after 2 prior shots that were saved, scored with only 3 seconds left to close the gap to just 1 goal ending the half 4-3 Redondo. It was a 7 second score from 100 yards away. PV take the lead midway into the 2nd half behind 2 Hoyt goals showing how she can just take over a game with her speed & power. PV got insurance goals from the Merchants and won 10 - 8.
