Ontario took the lead at 6:54 of the first period when Akil Thomas sent a fluttering shot on net that squeezed through Wolf.

Calgary notched the equalizer late in the frame at 17:09, as McLain chipped a pass from behind the net to Bishop out front who one-timed the puck past Reign netminder, Jacob Ingham.

1-1 at the break.

The Wranglers had their chances on the powerplay in the second period, but couldn’t convert, going 0-for-4 in the frame.

However, the Reign were able to capitalize on their man-advantage, taking the lead in the dying seconds of the period.

At 19:57, Thomas sent a shot just inside the post for his second goal of the game to put the Reign ahead.

2-1 after 40 minutes.

Calgary outshot Ontario 15-5 in the third period, but couldn’t find an answer for Ingham, who shut the door to preserve the Reign victory.

2-1 final.
