THE ACTION

  • Juniors Nell Criscione (Boxford, Mass./Masconomet Regional) and MaKayla Foster (Middlebury, Vt./Middlebury Union) had back-to-back shots in the 24th minute stopped by Savage.
  • Wilmot picked up a stop of Powers' shot in the 29th minute, and an ensuing penalty corner yielded no shots.
  • In the 42nd minute, Wilmot denied senior Charlotte Smith's bid before a follow-up corner set ended with Wilmot turning away Powers.
  • With no time remaining in regulation and Adelphi running a corner play, junior Katelyn Zaneski's shot slipped past Wilmot and within inches of the cage, but Kondrotas cleared the ball off the line near the left post, and the teams headed to overtime.
