Mankato, Minn. --- Sophomore Emily Antony scored a power play goal with 0:40 remaining in overtime to secure a 2-1 victory for Minnesota State women's hockey in its season opener against RIT on Friday night at Verizon Wireless Center.
The Mavericks (1-0-0) were on the attack early -- outshooting the Tigers 9-3 in the first period. Minnesota State got on the scoreboard first when junior Lindsey Coleman scored the fourth goal of her collegiate career at 18:46. Junior Anna Keys and sophomore Corbin Boyd assisted on the play.

However, RIT's goalie Terra Lanteigne (0-1-0) stopped all of Minnesota State's attempts to expand on its lead, and Caitlin Wallace scored the Tigers' lone goal at 4:20 to tie the game and force overtime.
In overtime, Senior Savannah Quandt nearly ended the game on a deflection attempt, but her redirect hit the post. With only 40 seconds remaining in overtime, Antony received a pass from Keys and beat Lanteigne to earn the win for the Mavericks at 4:20. Keys garnered her second assist of the game -- the 16th of her career -- and senior Anna Fiegert recorded her 15th-career assist.
