Keeping the momentum, the Lakewomen then pulled out the victory in overtime on tallies by Skylar Munnikhuysen and Leia Cloy.  Munnikhuysen also netted Wilson’s first goal in the opening half.

Lyndonville/Medina built up the 3-1 lead on 2 goals by Ella Lewis and 1 by Olivia Carter.

Albion scored twice in the first 10 minute overtime period to outlast Notre Dame as Brylie Hapeman scored from Lexi Wolck and then Wolck tallied off an assist from Hapeman.

The Purple Eagles built up a 2-0 lead in the first half as Abby Scanlan scored from Wolck and then Wolck found the net off an assist from Scanlan.

Notre Dame though answered back with second half goals by Callie McCulley and Ava Reinhart to send the contest into overtime.
