With 3:38 remaining in overtime, Paige St. Pierre scored the golden goal, ending the game, giving Waterville the win, where they will play the undefeated Hermon Hawks at Hampden Academy on Wednesday, November 6th for the Northern Maine Class B Championships.
According to Coach Dow
This was a very competitive game for both teams and a tough loss for us, but I am extremely proud of this team and how they carried themselves, not only in tonight's tough loss, but throughout the whole season. They always have each other's back and play as a team. The girls played a hard fought game tonight and played a great game against a very good team that hadn't allowed more than 2 goals scored against them in regulation this season. According to Central Maine, MDI became the 1st team to score on Waterville in 5 games dating back to October 8th and the 1st team to crack the Panthers twice in regulation time this season. Only Maranacook which needed OT in a win over the Panthers in the 3rd game of the season back on September 13th, previously scored more than once on Waterville this fall.
Granholm finished with 47 goals on the season, which is a Hancock County girls single season record
