FOND DU LAC, WIS. – The women's hockey team (19-5-1, 14-5-1) allowed Marian University (3-18-2, 2-14-2), to go up 3-0 before rallying with four unanswered goals on route to a 4-3 Northern Collegiate Hockey Association game Saturday afternoon at the Blue Line Family Ice Center.
In the end, the Adrian power play and offense overpowered the Sabres, outshooting them, 57-35.
NCHA leading-scorer Kelsey Kusch led the comeback victory. She got the Bulldogs on the scoreboard late in the second period and then continued with the team's first of three third period goals.
The second of her two goals was on the power play and her 19th on the season.
Sarah Connelly assisted on both Kusch goals.
Courtney Millar would tie the game at 3 with her ninth goal of the year with less than eight minutes in the third period on an unassisted tally and setting the stage for Emily Marks' game-winning goal on the power play with under four minutes to play.
Adrian goaltender Allie Carter notched her third win of the season after splitting time with Brittany Zeches.
Zeches' shutout string would end after almost three full games (170-plus minutes) of shutout hockey.
