Quinnipiac 1  / Maine 2 (OT)

Quinnipiac (0-3-0) / Maine (1-0-0)

Frank Perrotti Jr. Arena | Hamden, Conn.


  • (0:55, 2nd period) – Quinnipiac 1, Maine 0: Quinnipiac opened the scoring less than a minute into the second period when Sarah-Eve Coutu-Godbout (Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec) shot a puck on the net that was tipped top shelf into the goal by Adzija.

  • (15:45, 2nd period) – Quinnipiac 1, Maine 1: The Black Bears tied the game on the power play late in the second period when Tereza Vanisova scored her first goal of the 2018-19 season. Maine's Alyson Matteau played the puck up the boards to Ali Beltz who found a streaking Vanisova.

  • (3:26, OT) – Quinnipiac 1, Maine 2: The Black Bears won it in overtime when Vanisova corralled a pass from Celine Tedenby that led to a 2-on-1 advantage for Maine. Vanisova beat Abbie Ives (Bedford Hills, New York) blocker side to net her second goal of the game and win it for the Black Bears.

  • Adzija's goal early in the second period was the first goal of her career in the blue and gold

  • The goal for the Ontario-native came just a few days after the freshman was named ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Week. Adzija tallied two points for the Bobcats in her first collegiate game with a pair of assists against No. 7/7 Ohio State. She led all ECAC Hockey freshmen with two assists and two points on the weekend, and was one of seven rookies in the nation to record a two-point game.

  • Coutu-Godbout continued her strong junior-year campaign with her team-leading third assist of the season on Adzija's goal

  • Coutu-Godbout and Adzija are tied for the team lead with three points on the season

  • Ives recorded 26 saves as she fell to 0-2-0

Quinnipiac returns to Frank Perrotti Jr. Arena tomorrow afternoon for a rematch with the Maine Black Bears at 3:00 PM.
