The other morning game saw the Law beat the Storm 27-12. Brynn Piper, Deanne Garside, Jaimie Olson and Kim Scafe all had touchdowns for the Law, Wendy Charles had three converts, Garside and Olson had interceptions, Leanne Closson had two sacks, and Tanya Green added one sack. The Storm’s touchdowns came from Shylayne Davidson and Kat Waldron, while Annie Zurrer had an interception and Jenna Waddy had two sacks.
The afternoon game ended in a 20-20 tie between the Wild and Crew. Keri McKelvie had two touchdowns for the Wild, and Ashley Bond also scored and added a convert, while Rhiannon Kemmler added an interception.
