The Bulldogs though would not let the lead stick for long as they tied it after two-and-a-half minutes of play. 


Later in the period, Adrianna Rugiero would tally a goal herself after getting a pass from Melanie Foucha at the 13:41 mark. A couple of minutes later though the Cards would see the lead diminish again following another Bulldog score.


2nd Period - Adrian 5, Concordia 2

The Cardinals would go into the second period with the score tied until the nine-minute mark as the Bulldogs would score the first of their three goals of the period. Adrian would score twice more in the period as the Cardinals would only tally five shots throughout the second period.
