In the final frame, the Eagles had an opportunity to knot it back up after Cydnee Cook hooked Toni Ann Miano, sending the defenseman flying into the net and, hence, earning a spot in the penalty box.
The Eagles fell further behind the Huskies after Maclaine connected with her own rebound from the crease to tack on UConn’s third-consecutive goal.
After receiving a feed from Kenzie Kent, the junior drew Belanger out of the cage and lit the lamp, cutting the Eagles’ deficit to one.
Still, the Eagles were just as helpless on the offensive end of the ice, and it wasn’t long before Theresa Knutson put the exclamation point on UConn’s historic victory with an empty netter.
