0:00

Stevenson doesn't get a shot off and we go to overtime...

---

...what a chance at the end for Central, but they could not capitalize. Meanwhile, both Sejna and Montijo have three ejections so both coaches will have to look to the bench in overtime

 

NC 7 Stevenson 7

 

OVERTIME

---

The two overtime periods proved to be a defensive battle, with neither team scoring on eight consecutive attempts. In the waning seconds of the first overtime period, however, Stevenson's Karen Lowry scored the eventual game-winning goal to stun the Redhawks. The visitors had several chances to score in the second overtime session, but it was the Patriots' defense that came up big, shutting out the Redhawks over a six-minute period to earn the win.
