MANCHESTER, NH-- The Williams College Ephs (8-4-2, 5-2-1 NESCAC) faced the Saint Anselm Hawks (13-8-1). After a scoreless game for two periods, both teams were able to score in the third but neither was able to come out on top for the remainder of the game and overtime, keeping the game tied at 1-1.
The first two periods of the game were uneventful as neither team was able to score. Despite multiple power play opportunities on both sides, neither team was able to find the net. Williams was able to successfully kill off some penalties during this time but was also unable to capitalize on some power play opportunities.
The first goal of the game was scored at 12:25 into the third period during the Williams power play when senior Amanda Reisman popped out to get the puck below the goal line and found junior Gabi Montembeault in the slot who one timed it into the back of the net.
The Hawks soon responded with their own goal at 14:39 into the period soon after this goal and the end of the Williams power play.
"I thought we started out strong and had some good chances early," said head coach Meghan Gillis. By the end of the game, Saint Anselm's Kia Castonguay had saved 35 of 36 Williams shots while Marissa Anderson for the Ephs had saved 28 of 29 Saint Anselm shots.
