Bears Battle Quinnipiac to 2-2 Tie

Hameden, Conn. - Brown (1-2-2, 0-2-2 ECAC Hockey) made the most of their offensive chances on Saturday afternoon, getting goals from rookies 

Shannon Flatley (Toronto, Ontario) and Brittany Moorehead (Clinton, N.Y.), while junior goaltender Katie Jamieson (Waterloo, Ontario) stood on her head, making 48 saves to help the Bears to a 2-2 tie against Quinnipiac (4-5-1, 3-0-1) at High Point Solutions Arena.

After a scoreless first period, the Bears were the first to strike in the second period as Flatley notched her first career goal at the 9:25 mark. Sophomores Jennifer Nedow (Brockville, Ontario) and Vanessa Welten (Crysler, Ontario) combined to set up Flatley for the score.

The lead would last just over six minutes as reigning ECAC Hockey Player and Rookie of the Year Kelly Babstock tallied her fifth goal of the season.

Brown retook the lead in the third period of play off a score from Moorehead, 8:57 into the period. It was Moorehead's first goal of the season. Rookie Sarah Robson (Mississauga, Ontario) was credited with the assist, her first point of the year.

Once again, the Bobcats were able to tie it up at 10:56 in the third on a goal from Shelby Wignall.

Despite facing a 50-13 shot deficit, the Bears defense was able to hold through the remainder of the third period and into overtime as Brown picked up its second ECAC point of the season.
