The Dogs set the pace for the opening minutes and were first to get on the scoreboard taking the lead after 1:30 with a goal from Brown. The Tigers were quick to respond and Kennedy levelled on 3:18.

Telford found a gap on 30:06 as Goodison scored to extend the Tigers lead but this only fuelled the engines of the Steeldogs and they scored shortly after at 31:07 as Brown added his second of the game. The Steeldogs took up the challenge of getting level as quick as they could and Brown scored his hat-trick goal on 32:45. Sheffield were combining great passing resulting in shots in goal, making Day work hard between the pipes. The period ended 3-3 leaving it all to play for in the final twenty.
The final part of the game belonged to Telford. They scored three unanswered goals from Whistle (2) and Howells to wrap up the game. Despite getting 10 shots on goal, these chances weren’t converted to goals and this was the difference between the teams in the climax of the game.
