The Red and Blue tallied the game-winner with just 1:01 remaining in the first overtime as freshman Shannon Rengers buried a shot from in front of the net to improve DU's record to 3-0-1.
Junior Virginia Bondi made two saves in net with the lone goal coming on a penalty kick. Rengers, Rasmussen, Bondi and sophomore Audra Mathews were named to the All-Tournament Team while Rengers was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player.
In the tourney's other game Sunday, Vermont's Nikkie Hessney scored a hat trick to led the Catamounts to a 4-1 win over Robert Morris.
