The game was going for overtime, a 4v4 showdown without goal tenders, as regulation ended and the scores were locked at 2-2.
From the draw the Broomies proved too strong, moving the ball into the Pirates half and asserting their dangerous long range game, with Ben Boyd taking the opportunity presented to who when the Pirates defense squandered possession, netting the winner with a long range bomb.
