Turning Point
Salve Regina scored 47 seconds into the game and raced out to 3-0 lead. The Lancers finally broke through when Taila Borci (Worcester, Mass.) scored in the 42nd, but they quickly gave the goal back when Margaret Hanley (Pembroke, Mass.) converted a penalty kick just 37 seconds later. The Seahawks led 4-1 at halftime and 5-1 after Meagan McLaughlin (East Hampton, Conn.) scored in the 67th. The goal proved to be the deciding tally because the Lancers mounted a furious comeback, scoring three goals in less than three minutes. Becca Lashua’s (Gardner, Mass.) marker in the 87th made it a one-score game forcing some starters back onto the field for Salve Regina to close the game. The Lancers comeback bid fell short as they could not get another shot away against the Seahawks who hung on for the 5-4 victory.

Key Stat of the Game
The Lancers outshot the Seahawks 34-23 and 21-16 in shots on goal however the Seahawks scored on their first two shots on frame while the Lancers did not score until late in the first half.
