Christopher Newport opened up a close game to a 5-2 lead midway through the third period, and looked to be cruising to the first ACC M3 Championship. The College of Charleston had other ideas, as the Cougars netted 4 goals in just under 7 minutes to take a 6-5 lead into the final two minutes of play. CNU pressed hard in the final minutes netting their sixth and tying goal at 18:33 of the third period. That would be the final goal in regulation.
Deep into the first overtime period, and with legs tiring, the Captains found an odd-man 2-on-1 break and with a perfect pass, CNU netted the game winner.
Congratulations to the Christopher Newport Captains for winning the Inaugural ACC M3 Championship! Also, congratulations to the College of Charleston for winning the Virginia/Carolina Division Championship and for qualifying for the ACHA Regionals this week in Tampa, FL.
