Game Highlights

Team Minnesota made it back-to-back HNIB Girls Summer Showcase championships with a hard-fought 3-1 win over New England Division champion TeamONE.
TeamONE had entered the contest with a perfect 6-0 mark, including a 4-0 shutout win over the Shamrocks in the semifinal round. Minnesota was 4-1-1, its only loss on opening night to TeamONE, 3-2.
Minnesota led 1-0 after the first half of the game, only to see TeamONE notch the equalizer just after the break. The defending champs took a 2-1 lead late in the second period on a shot from in close, then expanded the margin to 3-1 early in the third period.
TeamONE had its chances in the final period, as at one point Minnesota incurred four straight penalties. But Minnesota was able to kill off all of its shorthanded time, including a six-on-three late in the stanza when TeamONE pulled its goalie already enjoying a two-man advantage.
