Meredith Stewart had two saves on three shots for the Wildcats, while Mikayla Treadwell had 15 saves on 20 shots for the Hawks.
“It was one of those frustrating games,” Presque Isle coach Ralph Michaud said. “We hit the cross bar. I give Hermon credit. They played a very physical game and it will be a tough rematch next week.”
