SYRACUSE, N.Y. - New Hartford native Sydney Bard scored 19 seconds into overtime to lift the Colgate women's ice hockey team to a dramatic come-from-behind 3-2 victory over Syracuse in its season opener, Friday.

At Tennity Ice Pavilion on the campus of SU, the Orange jumped out to an early lead with freshman Rayla Clemons notching the first goal of her career just 1:12 into the game. She followed that up with another goal 15:47 into the first period to give Syracuse a 2-0 lead after one period of play.

Colgate didn't get on the board until the 10:20 mark of the third period when Maggie MacEachern scored on a wrist shot from the point to bring the Raiders within one.

Just 3:37 later, with Colgate on a 5-on-3 advantage, Allyson Simpson ripped a slapshot that was deflected in front and went in to tie the game at 2-2. Bard had the assist on the goal.

The Raiders controlled the puck off the opening face-off of the overtime period, and Bard skated inside the left circle in the offensive zone and roofed a wrist shot to end the game 19 seconds in.

Colgate returns to action as they host Syracuse for the second leg of the home-and-home weekend set at Class of 1965 Arena on campus in Hamilton.

Puck drop is at 4 p.m.
