Taft came out of the gates quickly against Pomfret and notched a goal just over a minute into the first period when Ally Trimper fed sister, Morgan, who fired a shot off the Pomfret goalie and followed up her own rebound, slamming it home to take the 1-0 lead. Pomfret played hard and continued to pressure Taft throughout the period. Taft found the second goal quite elusive and it was Pomfret who capitalized next on a turnover early in the second period to tie it up 1-1. The Taft girls struggling to find their legs and missing some pass connections were unable to capitalize on their chances and Ostrander, in net for Pomfret, continued to shut Taft down. Finally, halfway through the second period, Lexi Cafiero, assisted by McKinley Karpa gave Taft the lead. The second period ended 2-1. Taft finally came alive and began to play their game halfway through the third with goals from McKinley Karpa, Mya Berretta and Natalie Witkowski. The game ended with a 5-1 victory for Taft.
