Endicott College scored three power-play goals and the Gulls posted a 4-1 non-conference win against the Hamilton College Continentals at Endicott's Raymond J. Bourque Arena on Sunday afternoon.

Hamilton (4-5-0 overall) dominated the Gulls in shots on goal for the second straight day but left Massachusetts with two losses. The Continentals were edged 3-2 by Endicott on Saturday despite outshooting the Gulls 45-22. On Sunday Hamilton held a commanding 49-17 shot advantage.

Endicott (12-1-0) received votes in the most recent USCHO.com Division III Top 10 poll released back on Dec. 9. Courtney Sullivan led the Gulls' offense with two goals and goaltender Michaela O'Brien made 48 saves. Endicott killed all four of the Continentals' power plays.

Sullivan's first power-play goal gave the Gulls a 1-0 lead 8:17 into the first period. Endicott held on to its one-goal edge until Lauren Ferraiuolo scored on the power play at 9:36 of the second period, and Kat Keith made it 3-0 on her even-strength tally with 5:42 left in the period.

Missy Segall '21 put Hamilton on the scoreboard with her fourth goal this season just 18 seconds into the third period on assists from Nancy Loh '22 and Michaela Giuttari '20. Giuttari and Segall are tied for the team lead with 10 points and six assists.

The Gulls restored their three-goal cushion at 3:10 in the third on another power-play goal by Sullivan, and O'Brien stopped the last 15 shots she faced.

Segall won 18 of 28 faceoffs and Sidney Molnar '22 turned away 13 shots in her second start this season. The Continentals host Nazareth College for another non-conference contest on Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 3 p.m.
