Stonehill evened matters at the 41:11 mark on sophomore Katie Shannon's (Feeding Hills, Mass.) goal and took the lead for good some five minutes later when Signorella completed her hat trick. After Limestone closed to within one at 11-10 on sophomore Meghan Dennehy's (Gambrills, Md.) third goal of the day, the Chieftains ripped off four goals in a 2:45 span to take control at 15-10, as sophomore Amanda Stubbs (Northport, N.Y.) netted two of the hosts' tallies over that time span.
