New Hampshire responded just under a minute later, before Katie Pascale notched two in a row to put UAlbany up 3-1 early.
- New Hampshire scored to cut the lead to 3-2 before UAlbany closed the first quarter on a 5-0 run to take an 8-2 lead. Pascale scored with five seconds remaining in the quarter to complete a hat trick in less than 15 minutes of game time.
- The Wildcats regrouped and opened the second quarter on a six-goal run to tie the game at eight with 6:22 left before the break. Allie Maloney ended New Hampshire’s run with her second goal of the game with 2:41 remaining, and Pascale added her fourth goal with 10 seconds before halftime to put UAlbany up 10-8 after 30 minutes.
