The Toronto Furies took their talents out west to challenge the top-seeded Calgary Inferno.
With the Furies coming off of an early morning and a long flight, The Inferno took advantage and jumped out to an early two-goal lead in just 10 minutes. The Furies would battled hard for the remainder of the period and kept the score at 2-0 Inferno, hoping to turn things around in the second.
The second period saw Calgary tally a quick goal to increase their lead by 3, but the Furies had no intention of sitting back and giving up. Carolyn Prevost took matters into her own hands by sniping a beauty past goaltender Toni Ross to cut the lead to 3-1 Inferno. Riding that momentum that Prevost ignited, Toronto’s defensemen Brooke Beazer would tally her first of the season with just 1 second remaining on the clock to cut the lead down to 3-2.
The Furies were giving the Inferno a game, and didn’t intend on stopping. With just 6 minutes remaining in the third period Prevost tallied her second of the night to tie the game and send things into overtime!
In overtime, it was Calgary’s Gavrilova that stopped the Furies train and ended things with just 30 seconds into the extra frame. Despite the Furies going down by 3 in the first half of the game, they battled back hard to earn a point. Inferno would take game one 4-3.

With the Furies being snake-bitten at the end of Saturday’s game they were looking for a little redemption. Calgary intended on keeping their winning streak.
The 1st period saw the Inferno come out quickly with a goal by Elana Lovell. Just 20 seconds later the Furies got one of their own from big blue liner Shannon Moulson.
Calgary however, would take complete control scoring 4 consecutive goals to round out the second period, ending in a 5-1 scoreboard in favour of the Inferno.
Going into the 3rd period, Prevost and Dingeldein would each score one to cut the lead by 5-3, but at that point the game was to far gone. Calgary would tally another to make the final score 6-3. Despite the Furies outshooting the Inferno 33 to 23, Calgary would take Game two 6-3 and sweep Toronto for the weekend.
