In the America East semifinal game versus Stony Brook University, Sheehan scored the team’s two goals, with the second coming in overtime to advance UNH to the title match for the second time in school history.

O’Shaughnessy played in all but two games, notching two goals and two assists for a total of six points. Her season was highlighted by a three-point effort against the University at Albany on Oct. 7. O’Shaughnessy earned her first goal of the season and assisted on a Sheehan goal in the contest. A week later O’Shaughnessy scored the game-winning goal against the University of Vermont in a 2-1 win.
