Miguel put Hamilton up 3-1 at 7:13 of the third after she received a pass from Meredith Bitterman ‘12 and placed a shot through the goalie's legs. After one of the Lakers was sent to the penalty box for interference, Hamilton capitalized with the extra-skater for a third time as Miguel scored her eighth goal of the season at 11:25. Sharlow and Zimmerman earned the assists.
SUNY Oswego made the score 4-2 with 1:18 left. The Lakers then called a timeout and pulled their goalie for an extra skater. But with just two seconds left, Zimmerman sent the puck ahead to Sharlow, who scored her fifth goal on an empty-net goal to seal the win.
The Continentals were 3-for-5 on the power play, while the Lakers were 1-for-4.  Oswego held a slight 26-24 advantage in shots on goal.
