Piranha Chur turned on another gear in the second period, when Corin Rüttimann, Seraina Buchli and Flurina Marti all scored one goal each. When Katrin Zwinggi scored the 4-1 goal on the 49th minute, it looked like Chur was going to take home the win in this Superfinal. But nine minutes before the end, Kloten-Dietlikon Jets woke up.

Jenna Suter scored the golden goal in the last minute of overtime and Kloten-Dietlikon Jets took home their 8th championship with 5-4 win. The team also won the Swiss Cup earlier this year.
