The Mounties only managed to get 2 shots in the first, compared to the Huskies 10. 

 

In the 2nd, MTA out shot SMU 7-5, but goalie Ashley Forler denied them of a goal. 

 

In the third, shots went back in forth with the Huskies getting four and the Mounties 5. 

 

Mounties goalie Kaitlin Mowbray turned away 19 shots and SMU's Ashley Forler stopped 13 shots on the night.
