The Sabres then took their first lead of the game when senior Morgan Bolin scored her 10th goal of the season at the 7:06 mark of the final period.  Anderson and junior Mary Clark each earned an assist.

The Green Knights responded with an equalizer at the 9:41 mark and then took the lead back for good just 1:02 later.
