Game Highlights

  • Olivia Hawes nearly put Hamilton on the board just over a minute into the game as she skated down the right side and wristed a shot off the near post.

  • Julia Surgenor made a move around a Continental defender seven minutes into the period, wristing a shot towards Sam Walther. Walther made a stick save to deny the bid.
  • Midway through the final frame, Marissa Fichter started with the puck behind Bowdoin's net and carried up the ice into Hamilton territory. Fichter fired a shot on net and Julie Dachille made the second effort, but Walther turned both shots away.
  • In the final seconds of a power play, Tala Glass directed a shot from the left point. Dachille tipped the puck as it came through the crease and deflected in to Walther.
  • During overtime, Surgenor couldn't put the puck away after a beautiful passing sequence in front of the Hamilton net.
