BRUNSWICK, Maine – The Bowdoin women's ice hockey team lost its second overtime game of the weekend in a 2-1 final against Saint Anselm on Saturday afternoon.

The Polar Bears have played three overtime games this season and sit at 0-6-0 on the year. The Hawks climb to 9-1-1.

Game Highlights

  • The visitors broke through 7:31 into the second period. Katy Meehan fought for the puck along the back boards and slipped a pass back up to Gabby Monaco at the top of the zone. Monaco made a quick pass to Kaley Campbell on the left dot for a one-timer.
  • With 30 seconds remaining, Haley Marshall rang a shot off the pipe.
  • Five minutes into the final period, Angelina Joyce raced onto the puck as it left the Bowdoin zone and earned a breakaway towards the opposite end. Maddie Scavotto stood her ground and denied the bid.
  • Joyce rang a shot off the near left post with seven minutes remaining in the game as the Polar Bears continued to look for an equalizer.
  • Bowdoin escaped a potential second goal by the Hawks as the puck squirted through the pads of Kerri St. Denis and bounced along the goal line. Nell Fusco skated in and cleared the puck back into St. Denis to be covered.
  • The Polar Bears forced overtime with a game-tying goal from Julia Surgenor. Surgenor and Brooke Solomon traded the puck behind the net before Surgenor curled out along the right circle and put a diving shot past Scavotto.
  • St. Anselm survived a Bowdoin power play in overtime and scored the game winner at 3:34 at full strength. Amanda Nylander and Kelly Golini both took shots on St. Denis and the rebound kicked right for Kathleen LeFebre to put away.
