Elmira wasted no time getting on the scoreboard as the Soaring Eagles grabbed a 1-0 lead just 1:29 into the first period. Delainey sent a pass to Wilgosh at the right faceoff circle and she fired a shot off the right post. Curk collected the rebound at the top of the left faceoff circle and slapped a one-timer that went in off the bottom of the crossbar.
After a scoreless second period, the Soaring Eagles extended their lead with 6:31 left in the third when Lamoureux slipped the puck past Hazlett on the low stick side. Hamilton (6-3-0) pulled Hazlett with 1:35 remaining in favor of an extra skater, but Wilgosh tacked on an empty-net goal with 61 seconds left.
Elmira enjoyed a 28-18 shot advantage and went 1-for-4 on the power play. The Soaring Eagles killed all three Hamilton power-play opportunities.
