Spaniards through court defence continued to put pressure on, forcing errors by pushing Misfits all into one channel. Misfits pulled the quarter back by two, making the score 14-12 to Castletown.

The second half started with some important intercepts from Spaniards defence of Rachel Cubbon (GK) and Breesha McLaughlin (GD), leading to a run of four goals. Bree Collister (WA) showed good vision and pinpoint accuracy with her feeds to the shooters. Tara Murphy
at GA for Misfits worked tirelessly to support the midcourt and work the circle well with Sayle. Misfits pulled back the difference with a run of three goals to finish the quarter.With only three goals the difference, the scoreline could have gone either way.

(GD, Spaniards). In the final minutes, the court opened up for the Castletown Spaniards and they went on a run of five goals. Spaniards won the game 29-21.
