Drexel regained the lead with 13:32 to play in regulation, going up 2-1 on a score by Megan Wiest. The Bison needed a little longer to counter this time, but were able to tie the game again on sophomore Brittany Willwerth’s team-leading sixth goal of the season.

There was plenty of action in the two 15-minute overtime periods. Bucknell had five shots on goal, while Drexel added four.

Poltonavage nearly had the game-winner in the first overtime, but Drexel’s Amy Ferguson made a game-saving defensive save.

Dimock’s goal was the first of her career. She is the 13th different Bucknell player to score this season.
