With just minutes to go in the first period, Sullivan made a diving save to stop a breakaway, holding the score at 2-0.

Though Berkshire picked up their pace in the second period, they struggled to finish at the net, and found themselves quickly down 5-0 by the end of the second period . Captain Olivia Mason '13 and Logan Bell '15 each had good opportunities, but were unable to work past strong Taft goal tending.
