Holy Cross was led by sophomore Lisa DeMari (Plymouth, Mass.), who was given the game-tying goal and senior Mary Jones (Merrimac, Mass.), who registered an unassisted goal at 70 minute mark and two shots on goal.

Liz Dyjak's penalty kick for Northeastern at 36:30 in the second half was good by, putting the Huskeies up by one for a score of 2-1.

Two other players scored goals for the Huskies. Kristen Kowalik scored the first goal of the game 12 minutes into the second half. Filippa Petruccelli shot a pass from Laura Johnson and Dyjak to score the golden-goal at 5:07 into overtime to give Northeastern the victory.
