BRUNSWICK — Maegan Sheehan scored less than a minute into overtime to complete the Bowdoin College women’s ice hockey team’s 3-2 comeback win on Tuesday night against the University of Southern Maine.

The Polar Bears collected their first overtime victory of the season to improve to 5-5. The Huskies were unable to hold on to their early twogoal lead and fell to 2-10-1.

USM got on the board 3:08 into the game off a goal by Katie Couture. Cassandra Sherman started the play with a centering pass to Couture in the slot for a redirect.

Couture looked to extend the Huskies’ lead minutes later as her shot from low on the left side found the far post and slid back out across the goal face.

Couture bested Sophia Lattanzio in the ninth minute, burying a feed from a faceoff in the left circle.

Bowdoin cut the USM lead in half 2:36 into the second period. Madeline Hall intercepted a breakout pass inside the USM blue line and circled back around on goal. Hall found Julie Dachille on the right post for the Polar Bears’ first of the game.

Miranda Bell dug the puck out from the left post and fed Marissa Fichter with just over five minutes remaining in the third period to tie the game at 2- 2 and force overtime. Fichter beat Britney Evangelista with a short-handed close range shot.

Sheehan’s game-winner came on the power play, firing the puck on net from the right faceoff circle inside the far post.

USM went 0-for-6 on the power play, while Bowdoin was 1-for-5 with the extra skater.

Lattanzio made 22 stops in net for Bowdoin. Evangelista had 26 saves for USM.

Bowdoin returns to Watson Arena with a weekend NESCAC series against Amherst beginning on Friday at 7 p.m.
