BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Boston Pride have now won back-to-back Isobel Cups after defeating the Connecticut Whale Monday Night.

The Pride scored three goals in the third period to complete a 4-2 come from behind win over the Whale to win a league-record third Isobel Cup. Boston won the inaugural Isobel Cup back in 2016 and also won last year's title. The Pride are the only team with multiple championships in the Premier Hockey Federation.

Jillian Dempsey opened the scoring for the Pride in the first period with an early goal, but the Connecticut Whale battled back and tied the game in the first with a goal from Amanda Conway. The Connecticut Whale took the lead just over 30 seconds into the second period with a goal from Taylor Girard.

The Whale held onto their lead for the remainder of the second period, but things came alive for the Pride in the third. Boston quickly snatched the lead back from Connecticut, with two goals from Evelina Raselli and Taylor Wenczkowski respectively. The pride scored both goals in the span of 18 seconds.

From there, the Pride managed to hold onto their lead for the remainder of the third, and even added an empty-net goal from Jenna Rheault to extend the lead to 4-2.
