David Glass was excellent on defense stopping the offense time and again . The blue team made a strategical, game-changing move midway through the game, which turned out to be monumental . By moving Harrison Stein from goalie to forward, the offense perked up . Harrison provided the attacking advantage as he scored the winning goal late in the game . Stefani Egre powered home the first two goals to tie the contest, which set the stage for Harrison . Debbie Chin provided great leadership as she directed the counter attacks for the blue team.
