Berlin threw nine shots on net while Eastern only had four.

"Both teams had limited chances and in the end, we were content packing it in and killing the clock, taking the draw and qualifying for the tournament," said Bristol Eastern head coach Scott Redman.

The Redcoats had two of the best chances to break the tie near the midway point of the first half, but Grace D’Amato turned away a shot to her left and came out to block a shot from point blank later on.

“In hindsight, these saves literally kept the Lancers in the game as there were limited chances,” added Redman.

D’Amato turned away the nine shots she saw while Natalia Chorzepa stopped the four shots for Berlin.
