ADRIAN, MI – The Bulldogs of Adrian College and the Redhawks of Miami University knew going into the series this past weekend, that it was going to be two hard fought games, and neither team disappointed the fans. The series ended in a split after Adrian took the first win, 1-0, and Miami fought back to win the second game on Sunday 2-0.

Miami broke the stalemate in the third just about a minute in as Nicole Matthews and Jordan Hanson found Rachael Booth open for the first goal of the game. Kaley Mooney would put up an insurance goal for the Redhawks, 2-0, which is the score that would hold for the rest of the game. Adrian goaltender Alison Dungey was in net and grabbed 11 saves off of 13 shots on net, and Emalee Wills was the Miami goaltender and stopped 17 of 18 shots on goal.
