In the first game of the day, a pair of first quarter goals gave Santa Clara a quick 2-0 lead.

In the Lions second game against the Otters, the defense posted another two scoreless quarters and this time got early offense to lead from start to finish. Wright finished with 12 saves and finished with five scoreless quarters on the day.
