Freshman defender Karen MacDonald scored her first career goal, the game-winning goal at 15:32 of the first period with senior Corey Stearns picking up her first of two assists on the night.

Junior Sally Butler scored just 39 seconds into the second period with help from juniors Denna Laing and Olivia Mucha.
