Amanda Olson would once again prove to be the hero as she took the ball down the left side and hit a shot right at GK Chrissy Lind and the ball found its way through her arms and between her legs and into the goal for the game winner in the 101st minute. That is Olson's 15th goal of the season.
The Broncos needed GK Brittany Toth to come up huge in the first overtime Melissa Stine nearly took advantage of a defensive miscue by the Broncos as her attempted shot over Toth just couldn't clear her vertical jump keeping the Broncos alive.

Toth finished the night with four saves and her fifth shutout of the season.
