Taft vs Deerfield

A fairly even matched game found Deerfield and Taft having to fall back on their defensive units. Deerfield proved that they have a strong breakout system, rarely turning over the puck in transitions. The first period ended 0-0 but Deerfield came out strong in the second to get a goal at the 11:45 mark from Grace Dumond. Deerfield offensively dominated the second period with Taft struggling to connect until they got on the board with a goal from Erin Lonergan at the 3:38 mark. Going into the third tied 1-1, Taft found their momentum and came out hungry. Taft got their first lead of the game at 11:05 and kept their momentum flowing throughout the third, heavily controlling the game. With just under three minutes to play, Taft leading 2-1, Deerfield pulled their goalie and gained the much needed momentum only to have Taft pick up an empty netter at 2:02. Deerfield was unable to answer and ultimately fell 3-1.
