The 2006 Bears split the opening two games, before a 3-2 double overtime victory over Rowan started a three-game shutout streak in which they outscored opponents 19-0. A 2-1 loss at TCNJ was followed by a seven-game streak in which the Bears posted four shutouts. A 2-3 overtime loss to Middlebury put Ursinus at 12-3. From there, the Bears rattled off nine straight wins to claim the title. Ursinus won both games in the Centennial tournament by shutout. A 7-0 win over Kenyon in the NCAA tournament kept the streak alive, and in the quarterfinals Ursinus upset top seed Cortland 2-1 in double overtime on the road, sending the Bears to the semifinals. A 3-2 win over Leb Val moved Ursinus into the final against Messiah, who had defeated the Bears 7-3 in the second game of the season. Ursinus exacted revenge in the final, beating the Falcons 3-2. Kait Sutherland, Allison Doutt, and Jess Lamina earned All-American honors.
