RPI women's hockey team advances with five-overtime victory

Senior Laura Gersten of Queensbury scored at 4:32 of the fifth overtime Sunday as the Rensselaer Pol

HAMDEN, Conn. — Senior Laura Gersten of Queensbury scored at 4:32 of the fifth overtime Sunday as the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute women’s hockey team outlasted Quinnipiac, 2-1, at TD Bank Sports Center in the second-longest game in NCAA women’s history.

The win allowed the fifth-seeded Engineers to win their ECACH quarterfinal playoff series, 2-1, and advance to Friday’s semifinals at top-seeded Cornell.

The Engineers (16-14-6) and the Bobcats came within 1:03 of matching the longest game ever, a New Hampshire win over Providence in the ECAC championship game in 1996.

Senior Allison Wright had given the Engineers a 1-0 lead at 12:31 of the first period, scoring on her own reboound, but the Bobcats pulled even on a power-play goal by sophomore Bethany Dymarczyk with 5:22 left in the third period.

Gersten ended the game when she carried the puck up the right-wing boards and lifted a shot over the glove of Quinnipiac freshman goalie Victoria Vigilanti for her seventh goal of the season.

Vigilanti finished with 57 saves, and RPI junior Sonya van der Bliek stopped 49.
