The Hungarians put the Austrians under pressure in the opening third and were already 2-0 up after seven minutes. On the first power play, Mira Serekeli deflected an unstoppable shot past 18-year-old goalkeeper Magdalena Lukin (3rd) and Bernadette Nemeth (7th). In the final minute of the opening third, the Red-White-Red responded with a double strike. Defender Annika Fazokas scored her fourth goal of the match, and Lena Ortner equalized 25 seconds later.
