• Much like Friday's game, the Bulldogs dictated the pace of play and kept the puck on the offensive end for most of the first half, but were only able to come away with one goal in the period as Northland goalie, Chloe Marshall (L, 3-14) denied Adrian with several great saves.

• Adrian outshot the LumberJills 20-7.

Hannah Dalrymple scored a shorthanded goal that put the Bulldogs up 2-0 in the opening two minutes of the second period. Brooke Lupi and Duncan (earning her second point of the contest) assisted on the goal.

Lewicki scored on the power-play putting a slap shot past Marshall for the 3-0 lead. Kelly O'Sullivan and Kaylyn Schroka were on the assists.

• Adrian tallied 16 shots on goal for the period; the LumberJills had eight.

Third Period: Adrian 5, Northland 0

• Seniors Schroka and Sydney Smith each scored in the final period to give Adrian the 5-0 lead and seal the victory. Sarah Shureb and Kristi Zink assisted on Schroka's goal; Lewicki and  Shureb on Smith's.

• Adrian only allowed one shot on goal in the final period while registering 22 of their own for a game total of 58 shots on goal.
