Woman of the Match
Krissy Dorre had the game's lone goal in the second overtime for the second-straight game, send the Panthers to victory. Clutch scoring often wins the day.

Dorre is the second Panther this season with back-to-back game-winners this season (Steinhauser Oct. 3-10) ... the 2012 seniors are the second-straight class to advance to all the NCAA Tournament in all four years ... Sammy Vovos is a fifth-year senior and will go to her fifth tourney ... it was the 16th instance in school history, but the first where both games were overtime games ... this also marked the first time UWM won double-overtime contests in back-to-back games ... the Panthers have won 11-straight league tournament games and are unbeaten in their last 14 (12-0-1) ... Forbes also picked up her 37th win in goal, second-most in school history ... her 87 saves this season are seventh-most in school history ... she has also played 5,422:49 in goal in her career, second all-time ... all five league tournament games this season have finished 1-0 ... Milwaukee is now 21-7-5 all-time against the Raiders, all-time and 7-1-2 in league tournaments ... the Panthers have now avenged four of their last five league losses in tournament play (they did not play YSU in this year's tournament) ... Milwaukee is now 7-3-4 in league title games, with nine championships ... Milwaukee is at .500 for the first time this season since 1-1-1 ... the Panthers have won in overtime games in back-to-back outings just twice before (10/13-15/06; 9/24-28/03), but had never won 2OT games back-to-back before.
