Campbell took advantage of a first period power play, lifting Saint Anselm to a 1-0 lead only 7:31 into the contest. Skating along the goal line, Campbell circled back with the puck toward the face-off dot and beat the Purple Knights netminder short side to create an early lead.

She would later add an assist on Katy Meehan's goal at 16:57, boosting the Hawks to a 2-0 lead to end the first period. The Hawks outshot Saint Michael's by a 20-to-3 margin through the first 20 minutes and the heavy offensive pressure forced the Purple Knights into committing two tripping penalties and a hooking infraction.

Campbell potted her second power play marker of the evening only 5:05 into the second stanza. A Meehan blast from the right point was knocked down in front by Megan Klaus. The carom spilled out toward the left post where Campbell tapped the puck in past the Purple Knights' Nicole Talcott.

Just over four minutes later, Kaitlyn Spillane scored off assists from Haley Marshall and Campbell to put Saint Anselm ahead 4-0. Heavily entrenched in the offensive zone, Marshall sent a pass toward the right point where Spillane caught the puck in stride. In one fluid motion, Spillane fired a pass that flew into the top-left corner of the net.

Spillane finished with a goal and two assists while Campbell led all skaters with two goals and as many assists. Meehan was plus-two and scored a goal and an assist, equaling Klaus' points output with two helpers.

The Hawks finished with a decisive edge in shots taken (56-to-11) and cashed in on two of the squad's five power play opportunities, shutting down all of the Purple Knights' opportunities with the extra skater (0-for-4).

Saint Anselm goaltender Maddie Scavotto improves to 5-0 on the season, making 11 saves for her third clean sheet of the year. Talcott turned aside 52 shots on the day, yielding four goals on 56 shots for the loss.

Amanda Donahoe fired a team-leading three shots for Saint Michael's.
