HOW IT HAPPENED:

-With a little more than one minute left in the game, Victoria Stowell (Franklin, Mass. / Franklin) sent a corner kick into the middle of the field. Teammate Brooke Shatney (Weare, N.H. / John Stark Regional) first got a piece of the ball, which sent it Mailman's way. Mailman headed the ball into the top right corner of the net to put the Hounds up 2-1 with 53 seconds left in the game.

-Amanda Chadwick had tied the game at one just under two minutes before Mailman's game-winner. With both teams huddled around the net, Chadwick sent a rebound shot into the back of the net to tie the game at the 87:21 mark.

-Kallie Villemaire (Plattsburgh, N.Y. / Beekmantown) put the Hounds up 1-0 at the 85:37 mark. After a Pace defender put a piece of her body on an Assumption cross-pass, Villemaire headed the ball for her 11th goal of the season.
