Women's hockey defeats UMass-Boston in OT

BOSTON, Mass. --- Megan Fortier scored with just 16 seconds left in overtime and Brianne Wheeler stopped 31 shots to power the Colby College women's hockey team to a 4-3 win over University of Massachusetts at Boston on Sunday in non-conference play. The Mules have won two straight games and stand at 2-2 overall heading into a big home game with Bowdoin College on Friday at 7 p.m. Annie Papadellis had two goals, while Samantha Slotnick had one goal and one assist for the Mules. Papadellis has a team-best four goals on the season and Slotnick has two goals and two assists. UMass Boston used a strong final 35 minutes of the contest to earn the edge statistically. The Beacons had a 34-29 shot advantage and won 36 face-offs, compared to 31 for Colby College. Slotnick got the Mules going in the first period when she slipped a shot by Casey Schaejbe at the 9:39 mark. Lauren Guarente picked up an assist on the score. Almost 10 minutes later, Papadellis doubled the Mules lead, when she took passes from Fortier and Slotnick and rammed a shot by  Schaejbe at 19:23. With the two teams playing 4-on-4 early in the second period, Papadellis won a face-off and shot the puck high over Schaejbe's shoulder to make it 3-0 Colby College. Colby's momentum would not last very long, as Dylan Caron made it 3-1 at 9:43 of the second period. On what looked like a broken play, Sarahanne Cavolo sent a pass to Caron, who notched her first goal of the season and seventh of her career. Emily LaRosa would put the pressure on Colby College just over two minutes later, when Katie Loiselle and Kayla Kiernan set up LaRosa to make it 3-2 at the 11:33 mark. Head coach David Venditti immediately called timeout to help settle his team and it paid off as the two teams would go scoreless for over 25 minutes. Despite a strong finish to the second period and a strong third, the Beacons struggled to find the equalizer through the first 19 minutes of the third.  The Beacons finally tied the score at 3-3 when they pulled Schaejbe with just over 80 seconds to play. After a timeout, the Beacons six skaters took their time and LaRosa found Caron in the slot for a high shot that just barely beat Wheeler at 19:31 of the third period. Colby dominated the first two minutes of the overtime, but could not put a shot on net. The Beacons responded with two aggressive minutes of play and just missed out on the game winner. Loiselle, camped out just outside the crease on the far side, received a pass with Wheeler out of position. However, her hard shot went just wide. Fortier would make the Beacons pay just over a minute later when she and Shei skated in and put pressure on the Beacons' defense. The Colby fore-check was so strong that a Beacons defender turned over the puck when falling to the ground, and just seconds later Fortier emptied her team's bench by finding the back of the net.
