Northeastern and Clarkson dueled in the inaugural two-game Friendship Series in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The win marked Vermont's first victory against a top-10 opponent since Jan. 12, 2018 and the Catamounts have now scored at least four goals in three of their last four outings. New Hampshire remained unbeaten in its last eight games with a 3-2 win over

#10 Boston College on Saturday.

The sophomore stopped all 20 shots she saw in Sunday's 3-0 win and allowed just one goal in 1-0 setback on Friday, stopping 21 of 22 that day.
