The Hawks would add another score in the second as Kathleen Twomey (Londonderry, N.H.) would convert on a power-play opportunity giving St. Anselm the 3-0 lead heading into the final period.

Saint Anselm would tack on another score midway through the third period as Jamie Comrie (Asburn, Va.) would net her first collegiate goal unassisted at the 8:45 mark.  New England would battle back in the third out shooting Saint Anselm13-9 but the Pilgrims would be unable to find the goal falling to the Hawks 4-0.
