The Boston Blades were in Toronto to face the Furies on Dec. 10 in a back-and-forth contest that would need a shoot out to determine a winner.
Gigi Marvin would be the lone scorer in the one-on-one battle securing a win for the Bladies.
The Furies opened the scoring with a power-play goal by Kori Cheverie at 6:40 of the first period that would be protected until the second period.
On back-to-back power plays, the Blades added two of their own from Kelli Stack and Caitlin Cahow to take a 2-1 lead.
Just over six minutes later, Meagan Aarts netted one for the Furies tying the game back up.
The Blades were 2-for-5 on the power play and allowed one goal during five penalty kills.
Not wanting a repeat of the previous night, the Blades came out early on Sunday with Saturday’s hero Marvin potting a power-play goal less than four minutes into the game.
Alyssa Wohlfeiler doubled the score for the Bladies late in the first period.
The Furies finally got on the board with a quick goal by Frances McPhail just over a minute into the second period, cutting Boston’s lead in half.
Brittany Simpson gave Boston the go-ahead goal and Marvin netted her second of the game just 30 seconds later; Boston wasn’t going to let Toronto slip away with a point this time around.
Cheverie scored with eight seconds remaining in the period but Boston held a 4-2 lead going into the last frame.
Less than a minute into the third period Kate Buesser scored for the Blades followed by a goal from Micaela Long less than 30 seconds later.
Cheverie netted her second of the game, on the power play, near the end of the third period but it wouldn’t be enough.
For every two goals Boston scored, Toronto could only answer with one which resulted in a 6-3 win for the Blades.
