The Chargers evened the score with less than ten minutes remaining in the half. After a scramble in front of the Thomas net, where goalie Abbie Charrier made a save off the initial shot, Taylor O'Connor gathered the rebound and put it into the back of the net to bring the score to 1-1 at halftime.
Thomas regained the lead eight minutes into the second half. Curry crossed a pass in front of the net to Leighton, who buried the game-winning goal to put the Terriers up 2-1 for good.
Charrier made five stops in goal and earned the win for the Terriers. Jodi Dumayne was tagged with the loss, recording eight saves.
