Junior Courtney Barker (Yarmouth, Maine) was credited with an assist on the Davis goal.

            Lyndon's Emily Strese ruined PSU's bid for a shutout in the waning minutes of the game with an unassisted goal with 2:29 left to play.

            Schmidt and senior Hannah Kimball (Epping, N.H.) combined to make four saves in the game while Hornet goalie Marley Harmon turned aside eight i in the loss. The Panthers out shot Lyndon 26-10 and held a 5-2 advantage in corner kicks.
