Vancouver Giants scored first, but Seattle Thunderbirds stormed back and put up four unanswered goals in the second period, too much for Vancouver to overcome on Sunday, Dec. 11 at the accesso ShoWare Center in Kent, WA.
After a scoreless first period, Jaden Lipinski opened the scoring for the Giants with a goal on a partial break at 2:28 into the middle frame, assisted by Kyren Gronick and Carson Haynes.
