Kremer started the scoring for Worthington 5 minutes, 4 seconds into the first period on a pass from Morgan Johnson to give the Trojans the lead. However, Watertown’s Kaitlyn Muhl put the puck past Bristow with 8:15 left in the period to tie it at one goal apiece.
Watertown controlled the second period, scoring two unanswered goals, one by Tara Hamann and the other by Heather Mullin to take a 3-1 lead.

Worthington was able to score one more goal before the end of the period when Betsy Thompson took a pass from Kremer and Aleanna Heig and put it behind Dunbar to make it 6-3.
