Senior forward Kristi Kehoe scored the game-winning goal for the Huskies

Senior forward Kristi Kehoe scored 1:29 into overtime to propel Northeastern to a 3-2 overtime victory over the McGill University Martlets in the Huskies' final tune-up before the regular season.

With McGill's Cathy Chartand in the box for hooking, freshman forward Sonia St. Martin took the puck in her defensive zone and passed it up the left wing to Rachel Llanes. Llanes then found Kehoe, who ripped a shot over Martlet goaltender Taylor Salisbury's (36 saves) glove for the dramatic win.

The first period saw each team muster nine shots on goal, but both goaltenders stood strong, with junior Florence Schelling (10 saves) forced to turn aside a breakaway late in the period.

Just 1:48 into the second period, McGill got on the board first when Adrienne Crampton tipped a Darragh Hamilton shot home for the 1-0 lead.

Northeastern responded in a big way about 10 minutes later with two quick goals of its own. At the 11:296mark, McGill's Stacie Tardif took a roughing minor. On the ensuing faceoff, Llanes won the puck back to freshman forward Katie MacSorley who roofed a shot over Salisbury to tie the game, 1-1.

Then, at the 11:51 mark, senior forward Lori Antflick snapped home a one-timer after MacSorley fed her a perfect pass across the crease. Llanes added the second assist on the goal.

Senior goaltender Leah Sulyma came into the game for Schelling midway through the second period, and while she kept a clean sheet in the second period, the third period didn't start in her favor. Just 6:34 into the frame, McGill tied the score, 2-2, when Alyssa Cecere netted a goal after receiving a feed from Chelsea Saunders.

Sulyma made seven saves and earned the win. Five different Huskies tallied points on the night, while three different goal scorers lit the lamp.

Northeastern will travel up I-90 this weekend to begin its regular season, as the Huskies will take on the Syracuse Orange on Friday, Oct. 1. Face off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
