But the Orange lost their lead with less than four minutes left. Eastwood’s goal 3:20 into overtime helped SU avoid its worst CHA start since its inaugural season in 2008.Syracuse opened the game attacking with seven shots on goal in the first eight minutes, all of them saved by Lions’ goalie Jolene deBruyn. And when a Shelby Calof hooking penalty gave Lindenwood an early advantage, the Orange didn’t allow a shot on the power play. With two minutes left, SU capitalized on its first power-play of the day off of an Abby Moloughney goal, the first of her collegiate career. The Orange’s defense persisted in the first, outshooting LWU 21-8, and Moloughney’s score put SU on top. But Lindenwood responded on its first shot of the second period. A Cierra Paisley goal, her first of the season, from Taylor Kirwan tied the game at one apiece. The Lions followed their first score with a quick power play, but after three-straight shots they fell short.

The Lions made the game 3-1 after a Jada Burke goal halfway through the third, but the Orange weren’t finished. SU and LWU traded shots for the next three minutes with the Orange down two. Eventually, SU’s Jessica DiGirolamo found the back of the net to cut the lead to one.Thirty-seven seconds later, Emma Polaski responded, netting her first score of the season to tie it at three. Lindenwood’s Maddison Stitt was penalized with tripping during the goal, and the Orange entered the next two minutes up a player.After a Sierra Burt shot, SU’s captain Allie Munroe controlled the puck.
