I’ve been saying this for a long time, but Post is improving fast. This team has come a long way from the inaugural 2016-2017 club that only rostered 16 players, 13 skaters, and only iced 8 or 9 most nights and as few as 7. (They did not win that one.) Their roster ballooned to 20 the following season and then again to 25 in 2019-2020 and currently sits at 27.

If the Eagles had saved their win for the back half of their series with Franklin Pierce they could also have notched their first win against a team .500 or better.

Usually when a team scores a major upset (though given how much Post has improved, this might just be a normal upset), they put in a few fluky goals early and then it’s a race to see if the favorite can erase the deficit before time runs out.

Instead Post would find themselves down 1-0 heading into the third period. They’d score once at 2:36 and then again with just 5:17 remaining, both on the power play. Both were scored by sophomore Kiersten Browning who sits at second on the team in points with 10 and first in goals with 6. Browning is among the bevy of young players skating for the Eagles, who boast 16 first and second years, 8 each so this team still has plenty of room to grow.

The Eagles are likely to finish last or second to last in NEWHA again, but with a single elimination tournament that admits all teams, anything can happen.
