After two scoreless periods it was freshman Blair Parent (Blaine, Minn.) who broke the scoring drought with her first collegiate goal, 7:49 into the third period to give PC a 1-0 lead. Parent received the puck from sophomore Ariana Buxman who slid a pass through a Brown defenseman after collecting the puck off of a turnover. Buxman's assist was her first collegiate point. At the 10:00 minute mark, junior goalie Allie Morse (Cottage Grove, Minn.) stuffed Brown's Sarah Robson on a one-on-one after she broke away from defenders, to keep the game scoreless.
The Bears got on the board to tie the game shortly after at 11:10 when Sam Donovan notched a goal with assists going to Ariana Rucker and Hunter Davis. Morse fended off multiple shots in the scenario but Donovan was able to put one rebound in the net. Brown scored the go-ahead goal at 17:07 when Kaitlyn Keon's slap shot found the back of the net, Hunter assisted on the goal.
