A goal in each period provided the 3-0 win for Endicott on the night. A power-play goal got the scoring started on the second goal of the season for Gulls senior Jade Meier (Fairbanks, Alaska).
Meier fired a one-timer from the right-wing circle, over the blocker of Hawks goalie Amber Lee (Nashua, N.H.) to give Endicott a 1-0 lead.
Gulls sophomore Courtney Sullivan (North Yarmouth, Maine) scored her team-leading fourth goal of the season in the second period.
Sullivan crashed the net, scoring off a rebound at 10:54 to give the Gulls a 2-0 lead.
An early third period goal at 3:25 by senior Emma McDowell (Alexandria, Va.) capped off the scoring.
McDowell's first of the season came on a shot from the right-wing circle that appeared to deflect off a Hawks leg and into the goal, giving Endicott a 3-0 lead.
