Theresa Knutson ended the frame with an unassisted goal at (13:11). Knutson stole the puck from the Black Bear defense behind the net, used a few slick stick moves, and wristed the puck home.

Maine finally found the back of the net at (12:36) with a power play goal from Emilie Brigham (Anoka, Minnesota).
