The goal was assisted by junior forward McKenna Gardner. In the 73rd minute, sophomore defender Taylor O’Brien scored a goal, assisted by freshmen defender Rachel Fry. This made the score 3-0, with the Seahawks having the advantage. This was also the final score of the game.

Although it was Senior Day, there were a number of freshmen who got playing time. To begin, defenseman Rachel Fry played a big role in the match yesterday. She turned in a great performance, earning the start and logging 78 minutes of play. She recorded an assist, as well as a shot on goal. Viktoria Hankova was also an impactful freshmen contributor in this one. Hankova started and logged 48 minutes in the match, scoring the second goal of the day.
