THE REST OF THE STORY

Kealey Allison (Frankfort, Del./Indian River) converted a free-position shot a minute later for a 2-0 lead. After an Allyson Bittinger free-position marker with 22:04 showing, Annemare Duerr and Abby Blankenship (Urbanna, Va./Christchurch) scored nearly five minutes apart to stretch the lead to 4-1 with 15:56 to play in the opening half.
• Emma Stiffler found Kaitlyn Morris and then converted her own free-position shot to close the deficit to 4-3 with 8:29 to play. Just over two minutes later, Lindsey Farrell found the back of the net and Duerr converted her second of the first half with 1:22 remaining for a 6-3 halftime advantage.
• Duerr picked right up where she left off, scoring 36 seconds into the second half for her second hat trick in as many games this year. Nikki Zerna, however, responded with 26:49 to play and sparked a 6-0 game-changing run. Bittinger converted a free-position goal with 22:40 remaining and Alexandra Simonson finished from Jordyn Miller with 19:51 on the clock to make it a 7-6 game.
• Miller then finished from Zerna to tie the game with 13:04 remaining. Neither team could find the back of the net after that until Simonson was awarded a free-position shot with the goalie out. She fired on the empty net and scored to give her team the lead with 2:24 to play. Morris made it a two-goal lead late in the possession clock, finishing from the left side with 66 ticks remaining. Kotelchuck wrapped around the cage and found the back of the net with 17 ticks showing to make it a one-goal game but Miller won the final draw and Shenandoah ran out the clock.
