SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. – Kaitlyn Conway scored the tying goal with 4:10 left in regulation as the Colby College women's hockey team scored the lone goal of the third period to forge a 3-3 overtime tie with Chatham University on Sunday in the Saint Michael's Holiday Classic.

Conway got things started in the opening period when she netted a puck from first-year Meghan Tedoldi and junior Stephanie Scarpato at 4:48. The Mules had 12 shots in the first period in taking the 1-0 lead into intermission.

The Cougars came out fast and scored just 1:27 into the second period on a goal by Dawson Bancroft-Short.
