Sophomores Sula Argyris (Woodhaven, Mich.) and Kirsten Vandenheuvel (Denfield, Ontario) both tallied assists on the attempt.

Trine was unable to score the tying goal, despite pulling their goaltender for the final 48 seconds of the contest, and dropped the contest by the score of 3-2.
Both teams racked up the shots in the contest with the Thunder finishing with 44 and the Cougars ending with 46. Junior Molly Scarborough (Ramsey, Minn.) got the start in net for Trine and finished the game with 43 saves despite allowing the three goals.
