After dominating the field in the first half, the Windjammers came out as the aggressor and that allowed Lulu Lydon to score a pair of goals, at 21:16 and at 7:54 with assists from Ani Reinward and Merideth Luce respectfully.

As time wound down in the second half the Witches defense picked up the pace and refused to allow Camden too close to the goal the final 2:30 of the game to capture the win.

Brewer held the advantage in penalty corners 5-2, while Camden Hills had 11 shots on goal to Brewer's 10.

Maddy Diaz was in goal for the Witches where she had eight saves for the win. Vicki Balla was in goal for the Windjammers where she had seven saves in the loss.
