Mariah Reed put Pequot Lakes up 1-0 in the first period, which was followed by a tally by Kim Jessen to start the third.

But DL senior forward Callie Johnson found the back of the net on an assist by Alexis Fritz 2:16 into the period, before the Pats went back up 3-1 on a score by Megan Snyder.

The Lakers (1-13) stormed back on an unassisted effort by Sam Benson and the tying effort by Sydney Haman on the assist by Johnson.
