HOW IT HAPPEN:
Chargers' Nicole Lavigne opened the game with a goal less than two minutes into play. The game's next goal came 10 minutes later off the stick of Deshaies. The teams would go back and forth for the remainder of the first half. The Eagles held a two-goal lead with less than four minutes to go thanks to goals by Makenna Mont, Paige Daigle and Cali Newton, but Colby-Sawyer received two scores from Brittany Ireland to send the game into halftime tied at 5-5.
Colby-Sawyer (6-4, 2-2 NAC) took a 7-5 lead with two goals from Lavigne in the first six minutes of the second half. A Newton goal pulled Husson within one, but Lavigne scored again to put the Chargers back in front by a deuce. Unfortunately, that would be the last time Colby-Sawyer would score as Husson tallied four-straight goals with two coming from Daigle and one from Deshaies and Mont in the final 19 minutes to escape with the 10-8 victory.
