ADRIAN, Mich. – Each team netted a goal on the power play as Marian University women’s hockey (5-16-4, 4-11-3 NCHA) closed out the season with a 1-1 tie at No. 5/6 Adrian.
The first period was quiet with no goals and the Sabres coming up empty on a pair of power play opportunities. The Bulldogs found the back of the net first at the 6:52 while on the power play, their first man-advantage of the game.
The Sabres were able to answer in the final period when junior Morgan Bolin scored her 11th goal of the season at the 8:44 mark. The power play goal was assisted by junior Ally Fox and senior Alexis Peterson, who were each skating in their final game as a Sabre.
The Bolin goal proved enough to force overtime where the two squads settled for a tie after neither team could find the back of the net.
Senior Lindsey Strainis (4-15-4) stood on her head for one last time in a Sabre sweater making 46 saves. Strainis would make 19 saves in the second period, 15 in the third, and five in overtime to earn the tie.
