Women's Hockey earns overtime tie at Hamline

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Concordia University Wisconsin and Hamline University traded goals in the non-conference matchup on Sunday afternoon and ended in a 2-2 overtime tie at Warner Coliseum.

The Falcons and Pipers went back-and-forth all game and each had 36 shots on goal, and neither team could convert on limited power-play opportunities. The tie is the third of the season for CUW (2-11-3) and finished a three-game, four-day stretch.

Junior Samantha Reiter (Stillwater, Minn.) fired home the game-tying, short-handed unassisted score just over seven minutes into the third period after HU (3-7-3) was whistled for a holding penalty.

Sophomore Jennifer DeGeorge (Waukesha, Wis.) kept the Falcons in the contest with 34 saves, including double-figure saves in the first and second periods.

Chelsea Koehn began the scoring in the second period with an even-strength marker less than a minute into the frame. CUW freshman Katherine Pauletti (Roseville, Minn.) answered with an even-strength goal – her second game with a goal – to tie the contest at 1-1. Freshman Olivia Vogel (Andover, Minn.) and sophomore Emily Heckendorf (Merrill, Wis.) were each credited with an assist on the play.

Chelsea Koehn put the Pipers ahead 2-1 with a goal 18:48 into the stanza. The overtime period was even, but neither team could pound home the winning score.

CUW returns to action on Friday and Saturday with a home-and-home game against Marian University. Friday's contest is set to begin at 7 p.m. in Fond du Lac, Wis.
