But the Eagles kept the offensive pressure on the Trojans, outshooting Worthington 36-20 in the game. Windom got the equalizer 5:18 into the third period when a scramble in front of the net resulted in Jolyssa Higley-Purrington stuffing a rebound past Worthington goalie Amanda Bristow, tying the game at 1-1. Addison Beaty assisted on the goal.

The Trojans outshot the Eagles 5-1 in overtime, but Eagle goalie Emily Steen came up with a series of saves to preserve the tie.
