HOW IT HAPPENED:

-Emily MacDonald (Ludlow, Mass. / The Williston Northampton School) tied the game at one at the 39:21 mark on a pass from Diana Bruggeman (Natick, Mass. / Natick) that snuck into the bottom corner of the net. Brooke Shatney (Weare, N.H. / John Stark Regional) then put the Hounds up 2-1 at the 51:59 mark, finding the back of the net on an assist from Morgan Paquin (Mapleville, R.I. / Lasalle Academy / Sacred Heart).
