DULUTH, Minn.  (UWSP)  – UW-Stevens Point held a 2-0 lead over the College of St. Scholastica on Saturday afternoon but the Saints evened the score with just seconds remaining in regulation and scored the game-winner in overtime to secure the 3-2 victory.

The Pointers' Allie Tanzer (Chippewa Falls, WI/Chippewa Falls) scored her ninth of the season at the 15:36 mark of the opening period to give UWSP the early edge.

In the third, the Saints' Nina Waidacher scored her ninth of the season to cut UWSP's lead in half, 2-1.

With just 15 seconds remaining, and with an extra attacker on the ice, the Saints pushed the equalizer past UWSP's Hillary Drake (Mosinee, WI/Mosinee), forcing overtime.
