How it Happened
Rhode Island knotted Dayton in a scoreless tie Thursday night for the Ram's third draw of the season.

Both teams struggled offensively in the first half of play, as neither of the teams were able to register a shot on the frame. Dayton recorded three shots on goal in the second half of play, however freshman Teresa Morrissey stopped all three shots to send the Rams into overtime for the fourth time this season.

Dayton's defense held Rhode Island to zero shots on goal until the final minute of the second overtime period, but that wasn't enough for Rhody as the extra time expired.
