Elmira (11-1-1) got on the board at 13:52 of the first period when Tirri played the puck to Walker for a slap shot from inside the left circle that found the back of the net. The Soaring Eagles led 1-0 at the first intermission.
After successfully killing a penalty early in the second period, Elmira stretched its lead to 2-0 via a goal by Mitchell at 12:40. Ryan played the puck around the left side to Metcalf behind the net, and Metcalf fed it out to Mitchell inside the right circle. Mitchell skated in and lifted the puck into the net for her seventh goal of the season. The Soaring Eagles led 2-0 at the second intermission.
Hamilton had a good opportunity to cut its deficit to 2-1 just over eight minutes into the third period, but Marshall saved a wrist shot by Riley Smith '12 that deflected off an Elmira defender to preserve the lead.
Charron's first goal of the night at 10:12 of the third period kicked off a stretch of four Elmira goals in just under six minutes. Johnston passed to Charron in front, she collected the puck and fired a shot through traffic that found the back of the net. Charron scored again just 37 seconds later when she lifted a rebound off a shot by Johnston that was initially saved.
After taking a feed from Lamoureux, Johnston scored on a wrist shot from the left circle at 13:06. Campbell closed the scoring with a power-play tally with 3:51 left. Ryan played the puck from the left circle to Mitchell outside the left post, who fed it across the goal mouth to Campbell for a one-timer.
Elmira held a 29-20 shot advantage, and was 1-for-3 on the power play. Hamilton was 0-for-2. It was the sixth straight win for the Soaring Eagles, and they have won all nine meetings with the Continentals.
