Brooklyn Lynch led Lethbridge with four goals, while Charli Allinson and Payton Racz scored twice each. Jenna Kambeitz, Samantha Martin, Camrynn Dueck, Maggie Swain, Hannah Guidinger and Kennedy Parks added singles, and Alexis Ingram was in goal.
The Warriors faced the Eclipse for the first time during the weekend, skating to a 3-3 tie as Anna Storey, Swain and Kambeitz found the back of the net.
