Hampden dominated from the first touch of the ball in the first half scoring all three of their goals in the first 16:45 of the game ending the half up 3-0.

Brewer made it a 3-1 game scoring on a penalty kick in the second half, and also played a much better half, being more aggressive to the ball and defending a strong Hampden performance much better.

Just 3:10 into the game Hampden's Maya Brown took a pass over the heads of the defenders from Sydney Hodgdon and buried it in the back of the net for the 1-0 lead. At 26:03 Eliza Parker took a pass from Samantha Quesnel. Olivia Airey finished out the scoring for the Broncos at 23:05 with an assist from Parker.
