BEVERLY, Mass. – The Becker College women's ice hockey team skated to a 1-1 draw with Endicott College on Friday night in Raymond J. Bourque Arena. 

 

The Gulls dominated the game offensively throughout the game as they outshot the Hawks, 16-1 in the first period, 14-6 in the second, 16-4 in the third, and 6-0 in the overtime period. 

Becker found the back of the net first, however, as Claudia Gee (Randolph, Vt.) blocked a shot and skated the puck up the ice to tally her seventh goal of the season at the 5:15 mark of the third period.

 

Endicott's Caroline Hughes (Andover, Mass.) knotted the game at 1-1 less than four minutes later with help from Ashlie Jones (Billerica, Mass.) and Madison Huber (Pittsburgh, Pa.).

 

The Gulls saw several great scoring opportunities in the overtime period, but Becker netminder Julia Johnson (Littleton, Colo.) was able to come up with key saves to keep the game tied 1-1 at the end of the frame. 

 

Johnson earned her third highest save total of her career with 51.

 

Endicott (14-2-2, 5-0-2 CHC) and Becker (3-12-3, 1-1-3 CHC) face each other again tomorrow, January 27 at 7:00 p.m. at the Worcester Ice Center.
