St. Lawrence 6, Merrimack 6
St. Lawrence beats Merrimack in shootout
Nine rounds needed before Saints prevail
The result will go into the books as a 6-6 tie between No. 7 Merrimack and St. Lawrence, who squared off in the opening game of the Ledyard National Bank Classic at Dartmouth’s Thompson Arena, but because it was a tournament, there needed to be a winner to advance to the championship. It took nine rounds but the Saints wound up winning in the shootout.
