Having beaten the Marauders 1-0 and 4-3 in a pair of close regular-season contests, the Warriors knew the challenge, and was in early trouble when Erica Pendrak scored to put Mills in front.
What followed, for the rest of the game, was an all-out M-E attack. Constantly, the Warriors worked the ball into the Marauders' end, often forcing penalty corners, but just could not convert on any set plays.
As time wound down in regulation, it got even more frantic, as M-E earned no less than seven penalty corners in the last five minutes. Still, Mills turned everything away as the Warriors' season finished with a mark of 14-4.
