Seidman got the Colonials on the board less than a minute into the contest and the Explorers tied the score at 1-1 at the 15:01 mark.
Seidman connected with Phillips for a goal with 14 seconds left in the opening half to put the Buff and Blue ahead, 3-2, heading into the break.
Melanie Sarcinello scored on a free-position shot to give La Salle a 5-4 lead, but Phillips added back-to-back goals a minute apart to give the Colonials the lead at 6-5 with 22:10 remaining. Sarcinello netted her second consecutive free-position shot to tie the score at 16:37 and La Salle gained a 7-6 lead less than one minute later.
Phillips scored her third and final goal at the 14:28 mark for the seventh tie of the game at 7-7. With just over 12 minutes remaining in regulation, Lacey drew a foul and buried the free-position shot to lift the Colonials to victory.
