Game highlights
* The first two periods were nearly scoreless, but Colby went up 1-0 with just 25 seconds left in the second period. Izzy Tegtmeyer had a long pass up to Anna Cosentino by the Trinity blue line. Cosentino and a defender battled for the puck and it squirted out to Lexi Cafiero, who went in on goal and put a backhand shot for the score.
* Marsden tied the game at 10:46 of the third period on the power play. Camille von Steinbergs pushed a pass to the left to Caelin Flaherty who in turn went back to the left point to Marsden for the shot.
* The Bantams took advantage of another power play at 13:31 when Marsden again scored on a long shot. Sierra Lee was in the middle and got a pass to Flaherty, who again went back to Marsden at the point.
* Trinity scored the third goal on an empty net with 57 seconds remaining. Colby was trying to clear a puck back into the Bantams' zone, but Marsden intercepted the pass and scored from near the red line.
* Colby did not give up and scored with just 10 seconds remaining when Carly Thomas (pictured) scored while on the ice in front of the goal. Elizabeth Brashich's shot was saved, but the rebound went out in front with a scrum all going for the puck. Thomas managed to poke the puck in the goal.
