Heller was instrumental in the Gator’s offense that exploded in the fourth quarter. She had a hat-trick on only four shots, which tied for the team lead. She also led the team with five controlled draws.
Browndorf anchored the defense and was a key piece in the Gator’s comeback win. The defense allowed only four goals in the second half. Browndorf led the team with three groundballs, while also forcing two turnovers.
Heller and Browndorf will look to lead the way again Tuesday at home against the Colgate Raiders, first draw is at 6:30 PM.
