Coming off of a solid win at Brewster, the Huskies would look to end the week with another victory. The Huskies would host the Milton Academy Mustangs in a very exciting game. Olivia Sollows ’19 would start between the pipes for the Huskies and look to have another great game like she did against Nobles earlier this week.
The Huskies came out with energy and speed. As the Huskies entered the offensive zone, Lily Humphries ’19 would get her stick caught with a Mustang player and use her skate to kick the puck over to her line-mate, Anna Shelden ’20. Shelden quickly gave it back to Humphries, who would score for the Huskies and give them a 1-0 lead. However, Milton came back to tie the score off of a play that brought the Husky energy down. The period would end with both teams at one and the Huskies would need to step it up.
The Huskies found themselves on the Penalty Kill way too many times this period. The Mustangs took advantage of the extra player and scored a Power-Play goal to give them the lead. Although the Huskies had a few Power-Play opportunities, they were unable to take advantage.
The Huskies took the momentum in the third period but were still having trouble finding the back of the net. Shots were blocked and Milton had a few more Power-Play opportunities. With a minute and twenty seconds left, the Mustangs would take an interference penalty. As time would wind down, Sollows would skate to the bench to give the Huskies two extra men. As the clock hit the eleven second mark, Anna Shelden ‘19 would find the second or third rebound to tie the game at two.
A five-minute sudden-death overtime would give the Huskies a chance to win the game now that the momentum was back on their side. About a minute into overtime, the Huskies would enter the offensive zone and take a shot on net. The shot was deflected and then saved by the Mustang goalie. A rebound was left in front, in which Kelly Matthews ’19 would win the game for the Huskies. The Huskies go into the next week with a record of 2-1 and will face the Hebron Lumberjacks at the Jake on Wednesday.
