Connecticut College broke through in the third period. The Camels scored on their fifth power-play opportunity as Jane Pagano ’17 fed Cassie Hunter ’17 at the 8:40 mark. The goal snapped Hamilton’s shutout streak at 74:58. Leah Kallen ’14 notched her second goal of the season -- an unassisted tally -- and knotted the score with 5:12 left.
Sarah Schuchardt ‘15 recorded a career-high 30 saves, including four in overtime, and remained unbeaten in four career decisions. Parkman’s first period goal, which was set up by Hannah Jaiven ’14 and Sara Taffe ‘17, was the first of her career. Fraser scored her team-leading fourth goal and raised her career total to 15.
Kelsie Fralick ’15 turned aside 31 shots for Connecticut College. Hamilton owned a 33-32 advantage in shots over the Camels, who outshot the Continentals 16-11 over the final 25 minutes.
