Box Score

The Oilers only trailed by an 11-7 score at the half, but the Storm broke the game open in the second period by scoring six straight goals to take a commanding 17-7 lead.  The big start for Lake Erie then proved too much for the Oilers to overcome as they fell to 6-9 on the season with the loss.

Freshman Erin Stacho led the team with four goals and three ground balls while sophomore Sarah Lankton added two scores, one assist, four ground balls and ten draw controls in the loss.

Freshman Kyra Bradley had two goals while sophomore Victoria Predmore, freshman Nicole Stines and freshman Allison Kelly each chipped in one goal apiece.
