The Lynx earned a spot in the Final Four with a 2-1 win over Vermont Tech on Tuesday. In the semifinals on Saturday, NHTI topped Southern Maine Community College 4-3 on penalty kicks, after the teams battled through two overtimes deadlocked 1-1.

In the finals matchup, Kevin Smith Jr. (Hopkinton, NH) netted a pair of goals to earn the Offensive Player of the Tournament award.  Smith Jr scored his first goal three minutes into the contest by faking a shot to the left and tapping past an off-balance St. Joe’s goalie.

Austin Sartwell (Hooksett, NH) scored the second Lynx goal midway through the first half.  NHTI goalkeeper Andrew Laprise (Manchester, NH) turned away six Fighting Saints attempts for the shutout.  Laprise earned the tournament’s MVP award for holding St. Joe’s scoreless and making the game-winning save on a Penalty Kick against Southern Maine Community College after the teams played to a 1-1 tie.

With this victory, NHTI earns an automatic bid to the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) National Tournament beginning November 4.
