-Brooke Shatney (Weare, N.H. / John Stark Regional) tied the game at two at the 53:14 mark. She scored on an open net after teammate Kallie Villemaire (Plattsburgh, N.Y. / Beekmantown) beat Hawks' goalie Payton Wildrick to the loose ball.

-The Hawks led 2-1 at halftime. Villemaire scored the team's first goal at the 8:22 mark on a shot assisted by Ania Spina (Wallingford, Conn. / Mark T. Sheehan).
