Junior Hélène Servais (Brussels, Belgium) was the difference maker in the Northeast-10 Quaterfinals on Tuesday as the Penmen defeated Bentley in overtime, 2-1.

That marked her 13th goal of the season, with sophomore Cameron Whelan (Seabrook, N.H.) scoring SNHU’s other goal earlier in the game to remove Bentley’s early lead.

The Penmen outshot Bentley 27-4, with 17 of their shots going on goal compared to just one for Bentley.

This marks the first ever postseason victory for SNHU’s field hockey program. Next up is Saint Thomas Aquinas on Friday, Nov. 8 (6 p.m.) at Larkin Field.
