United were able to level the score through a well-executed penalty corner which has been a strength of their season.
The Panthers continued to push forward and were rewarded with their second goal through Corey Joseph. Joseph found himself in space on the right side of the circle and slapped the ball in, over the keeper.
On the half time whistle Matt Freeman extended the lead for the Panthers pouncing on a rebound off the goal keeper. This allowed the Panthers a little buffer going into the second half.
