The Lasers found themselves down 1-0 for most of the game after McKenzie Murphy (West Baldwin, Maine) scored seven minutes into the second half. The Lasers would go on to dominate the visitors after the goal by outshooting the Monks 21-3 with 13 shots on goal.
With just over three minutes remaining in the game, junior Korynne Provenzano (Stratham, N.H.) headed home a goal off of a corner from junior Narissa Libby (Gorham, Maine) to tie the score 1-1.
The Lasers kept the pressure on the Monks, keeping the ball in the visitors defensive third.

Freshman Bobbi O'Guin (Newton, Mass.) fired the ball into the back of the net to score the game-winning goal.
