Pride Get the Touchdown on Buffalo

#5 Buffalo Beauts v. #4 Boston Pride
Series Tied 1-1 – Game 3

Game Recap:

Going into what was thought to be Game 3 of their Best of Three Series, the Boston Pride and Buffalo Beauts now play for their positioning in the Semifinals that will take place Thursday on NBC Sports Network.

In the first period would be an evenly contested matchup, but once the midway point of the period passed the Pride would take over as Sammy Davis would open the scoring with her third of the season. Also with the goal the Pride would also get a powerplay as Hunter Accursi would be called for Body Checking, but the Beauts wouldn’t do themselves any favors as Lisa Cheeson would be called for Hooking to give the Pride the two person advantage. On the 5 on 3 advantage it would be the captain Jillian Dempsey scoring to grow the Pride’s lead to two, and Davis would not be finished yet as she would net her second of the period to give the Pride the commanding 3-0 lead.

In the second period we would see a bit of a reversal as the Pride would see themselves get into penalty trouble, however, the Beauts would not be able to take advantage of any of them. But after an official review Kristin Lewicki would get the Beauts on the board to help build some momentum for Buffalo. But late in the period Meghara McManus would net hersecond of the season to give the Pride their three goal lead back as they entered the second intermission.

Come the third period the Pride would continue pushing the pressure on the Beauts. During a Buffalo powerplay Lexie Laing would be sprung on a breakaway to score a shorthanded tally to give the Pride the four goal lead. In the third period the Pride would also put goaltender Victoria Hanson between the pipes to give top netminder Lovisa Selander a rest. Then Mallory Souliotis would net her third goal of the season to grow the Pride’s lead to five, but the bleeding wouldn’t stop there for the Beauts as Meaghan Rickard would net her first career NWHL goal to give the Pride the 7-1 victory. the Boston Pride will now take on the Minnesota Whitecaps and the Buffalo Beauts will face the Toronto Six in the Semifinals on Thursday.
