In a 3-2 overtime victory at Brockport on Friday, O'Shea cut an early 2-0 Brockport lead to 2-1 with her first goal of the game in the 19th minute. She then netted the game-winning goal 5:49 into overtime with a shot from 28 yards away. On Saturday, O'Shea tallied the game-tying goal in the 84th minute as she converted a penalty kick in Cortland's 1-1 double-overtime tie at 17th-ranked Geneseo.

Svendsen posted a 1-0-1 record with a 1.31 GAA, 17 saves and an .850 save percentage in a pair of conference road games last weekend. In a 3-2 overtime win at Brockport on Friday, Svendsen made six saves. She followed up with a career-high 11 saves as Cortland played to a 1-1 double-overtime tie at 17th-ranked Geneseo on Saturday.
