Valentine made 12 saves in goal, but the Wolves fell 5-2 to the Knights. Keuka rebounded on Sunday against Sage. Following 90 scoreless minutes, the game went to a shootout. Wilson scored on her attempt and Valentine stopped all three attempts by Sage as the Wolves won the shootout 3-0.

The goal was the first of the season for Nicole Wilson after she led the Wolves in scoring as a freshman. In total this year, Wilson has a pair of assists to tie for second in the conference. Kassidy Valentine leads the NEAC with a 3.37 goals against average, over 2.50 better than second in the league. She also ranks third in the conference with a .632 save percentage and 36 total saves.
