After a close first quarter that saw the Demons leading 3-1 heading into the second, the Demons caught fire and quickly built an 11-3 lead at halftime. There was no looking back in the second half as the Demons continued to roll in the third, and despite some adjustments by the Blizzard, they trailed 17-6 going into the fourth. The final quarter started to get a little heated, which looked like it sparked the Blizzard who rallied with 4 goals however, it was too little, too late and the Demons cruised to an 18-10 win to remain the only undefeated team in CLax.
