The Orange held one-goal leads at the end of the first two periods thanks to goals from Abby Moloughney and Sarah Marchand. Mercyhurst tied the game at 2 about halfway through the final period.
Thompson’s title-winning goal came at 7:32 of the extra session and was assisted by Jessica DiGiolarmo and Tatum White. Arielle DeSmet made 29 saves on 31 shots to earn the victory in net. The Orange clinch a spot in the NCAA Championships and will likely face the top-seed in the opening round.
Congratulations to Head Coach Paul Flanagan and his team on their sweep of the CHA titles this season.
