BOSTON — Tournament MVP Kim Tess-Wanat capped an outstanding performance by scoring the game-winning goal with five seconds remaining in overtime to give the Bowdoin College women’s ice hockey team a 2-1 victory over the University of Massachusetts Boston in the championship of the Codfish Bowl on Tuesday afternoon.

With the victory, Bowdoin (5-6-2) became the first team other than Trinity College to skate away with the tournament championship. The Bantams had won the crown each year since the tourney’s inception in 2008.

Tess- Wanat earned MVP honors by netting both goals in Tuesday’s game. The forward finished the tournament with a combined five goals and three assists. Assisting both of Bowdoin’s goals was Kayte Holtz, while Dominique Lozzi added an assist on the first goal, and Madeline Lane assisted the game-winning tally.

Kayla Kiernan scored UMass-Boston’s lone goal.

Kayla Lessard stopped 26 shots to earn All-Tournament honors in addition to Tess- Wanat. Defender Emily Tang was also recognized as an All- Tournament honoree.

The Polar Bears will look to carry their momentum into a weekend New England Small College Athletic Conference series at Connecticut College. Bowdoin will visit the Camels in New London, Conn., for games on Friday and Saturday.
