Sherwood Park changed their goalie for the second period but in the very first move from the face off, Maddy Noonan got away, centre ice and took the puck around the back of replacement, Kaylee Eleniak for her second goal of the game.  Ella Kitchen did the same, scoring her second just before the end of the period.
