Storm Invitational Cup
|Sheffield Storm||1||vs||2||Arnold Cubs|
FT: 2 - 1 Sheffield Storm 1 - 2 Arnold Cubs
Both teams started the game very brightly, finding space and time to create numerous chances.
However, it was the Cubs that opened the scoring after a slap shot from the point. The ball found its way through the number of bodies infront of the goal, after the previous 2 attempts were blocked. Storm didn't quit, and piled on the pressure, finally getting the first goal of their tournament following great play from both defence and the forwards, with Scott Antcliffe getting the vital touch. Cubs pressured late on, and scored the winning goal with less than a minute left after the left winger was left unmarked at the back door, scoring from a couple of feet out.
