BOSTON - The Northeastern women's hockey team scored five unanswered goals to overturn a four-goal, first-period deficit in a 5-4 win over Mercyhurst on Friday afternoon at Matthews Arena.

The Lakers (0-1-2) jumped out to a 4-0 lead just 12:08 into the game, but Northeastern (3-1-1) found a way to battle back, scoring two power-play goals, a shorthanded goal, and two even strength goals in the win.

Junior Hayley Scamurra scored the game-tying goal late in the second period, before netting the game-winner midway through the third as the Huskies improved to 5-1-0 all-time against the Lakers.

Senior Jordan Krause, senior Kendall Coyne and sophomore McKenna Brand also scored, while sophomore Taytum Clairmont had two assists.

Goal Recaps

- The Lakers scored on their first shot just 1:20 into the game. After a turnover behind the NU net, Hannah Bale grabbed the puck and centered for Sarah Robello to blast home in the low slot.

- Mercyhurst scored again five minutes later when Rachael Smith tucked a backhander through the pads of Sarah Foss on a breakaway.

- The Lakers opened up a 3-0 lead when Hannah Bale sniped a wrister over the glove of Foss on a 2-on-1 at the 10:36 mark.

- The puck was in the back of the net yet again 1:32 later when Robello tossed a shot from a tough angle on the left wing that snuck inside the near post.

- Northeastern answered on the power play at 16:16 when Clairmont found senior Jordan Krause open at the top of the zone for a shot that snuck through traffic and into the net.

- The Huskies cut the deficit to 4-2 in the second period on an incredible shorthanded effort from Coyne. After stealing the puck in the defensive zone, Coyne chipped the disc by one defender, and then undressed a second defenseman en route to a silky backhander under the crossbar at the 6:34 mark.

- Just over five minutes later, Brand brought NU within one with a power-play goal at 11:58. Krause took a feed from Clairmont at the left point and spotted Brand open at the right post for a shot that just snuck over the goal line to make it 4-3.

- The Huskies then scored their fourth unanswered goal at 18:59 of the second stanza when Scamurra collected a rebound at the left of the net and stuffed the puck under the pads of Sarah McDonnell.

- Scamurra then scored the eventual game-winner midway through the third with a rip under the crossbar from the low right slot.
