Trinity Shuts Out Southern Maine 5-0

GORHAM, Maine -- Rookie goalie Sydney Belinskas (Port Orange, Fla.) stopped 24 shots to earn her first career shutout as the visiting Trinity College Bantams blanked the University of Southern Maine Huskies 5-0 in a non-conference women’s ice hockey game Saturday at the USM Ice Arena.

The win gave the Bantams a sweep of the teams’ two-game weekend series, and improved their overall record to 3-2-1. The Huskies dropped their third straight game and fell to 2-6-1 overall.

Senior Lucy Robinson (Toronto, Ont.) paced the Bantams offensively with two goals, including the game winner, and one assist. Juniors Emma Tani (Orange, Calif.) and Cheeky Herr (Princeton, N.J.) and rookie Kelcie Finn (Weymouth, Mass.) had the other Bantam goals.

Belinskas, making her second straight start, stopped everything the Huskies threw her way en route to the shutout. The rookie netminder got some help in the third period from the right post as USM junior Cassandra Sherman (North Smithfield, R.I.) banked a rebound off the iron after Belinskas stuffed her first attempt. Belinskas had 12 saves in the middle period when the Huskies out shot the Bantams 12-10.

Junior Nia Kelly (Santa Rosa, Calif.) started in goal for the Huskies allowing three goals and registering six saves in 32:28 of action before giving way to rookie Courtney Davis (Woburn, Mass.). Davis, making her collegiate debut, surrendered two goals and made 18 saves, including 15 in the final period.

Robinson put the Bantams on top at 3:42 of the first period as she roofed a tough-angle shot up over Kelly’s shoulder for her first goal of the season. Sophomore Jessica Stowell (Hadley, Mass.) had the lone assist.

Tani increased the lead to 2-0 at 15:17 as she deflected a pass from rookie Delaney Harrop (Walpole, Mass.) by Kelly for her third goal.

Robinson tallied her second goal of the game from a scramble in front of the net at 10:26 of the second period. Finn picked up her third goal of the season at 17:49 beating Davis from the right-wing circle to make it 4-0 after two period.

Herr, who had two goals in Friday night’s win, tallied the only goal of the third period with an assist from Robinson.

Trinity finished the game with a 29-24 advantage in shots on goal. Neither team was able to convert with the man advantage.

Southern Maine is off until January 4 when Amherst College visits the USM Ice Arena for a non-conference game. Trinity will return to action on January 2 when it travels to St. Paul, Minn., to play Marian University (Fond du Lac, Wis.).

The Mules are 4-4 overall, while Plymouth State dropped to 1-8-1 overall.

Colby scored five goals in the opening 9:48 of play to put the game away early. Delaney Flynn scored her third of the season from Megan Fortier at 2:44 to start the run. Fortier had another assist, her fourth of the season, on a goal by Elisa Rascia just 2:04 after Flynn's score.

#6/#10 Amherst Escapes Southern Maine with 3-2 Win

GORHAM, Maine -- Rookie Brenna Sullivan (Lockport, Ill.) scored with 2:19 remaining in regulation to give #6/#10 Amherst College a 3-2 victory over the University of Southern Maine in a non-conference women’s ice hockey game Sunday afternoon at the USM Ice Arena.

The win extended the Lord Jeffs winning streak to three games, and improved their overall record to 8-1-1. The Huskies dropped their fourth straight game to slip to 2-7-1 overall.

With time winding down and overtime looming on the horizon, Sullivan picked up a loose puck along the left-wing boards after some hard work by seniors Emily Flom (Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich.) and Madeline Tank (Winnetka, Ill.) to skate in alone on USM senior goalie Liz Bergstrom (Chanhassen, Minn.). Sullivan beat Bergstrom with a shot from about 10 feet out for her fifth goal of the season.

Sophomore Katie Couture (Harrisville, R.I.) had tied the game for the Huskies midway through the third period when she stepped around an Amherst defender on a faceoff and beat rookie goaltender Sabrina Dobbins (Bedford, N.H.) for an unassisted short-handed goal. The goal was Couture’s team-leading fourth of the season.

Amherst scored the only goal of the opening period in the final minute of play as Flom tipped a shot from sophomore Lynndy Smith (Glendale, Ariz.) up over Bergstrom’s right shoulder. Junior Erin Martin (Canton, Mass.) picked up the other assist.

Southern Maine battled back in the second period to tie the game when senior Talya Bent (Cranston, R.I.) fired a shot past Dobbins at 3:52. Sophomore Lynn Kozlowski (Stoneham, Mass.) picked up the lone assist with some tenacious forechecking and the pass to Bent.

Less than three minutes later, the Lord Jeffs retook the lead as Flom took advantage of a Huskies defensive zone turnover to go in one-on-one against Bergstrom. Flom beat Bergstrom with a shot along the ice for her sixth goal of the season.

Bergstrom played a strong game in goal for the Huskies making 27 saves and keeping the home side within striking distance of the nationally-ranked Lord Jeffs. Dobbins picked up her fourth win of the season stopping 10 shots. The Lord Jeffs finished the game with a 30-12 advantage in shots on goal.

Southern Maine will take on Division One independent Sacred Heart University in a two-game series at the USM Ice Arena this Tuesday (4:00 p.m.) and Wednesday (4:00 p.m.). Amherst returns to the state of Maine this Friday (7:00 p.m.) and Saturday (3:00 p.m.) for a two-game NESCAC series at Colby College.

Southern Maine Falls to Sacred Heart 4-2

GORHAM, Maine -- Senior Alanna Woodford (Scituate, Mass.) scored three goals as the Sacred Heart University Pioneers twice rallied from one-deficits to defeat the University of Southern Maine Huskies, 4-2, in a non-conference game Tuesday afternoon at the USM Ice Arena.

The win was the second straight for the Division One independent Pioneers, and lifted their overall record to 5-6-0. The Division Three Huskies dropped their fifth consecutive game to fall to 2-8-1 overall.

Woodford twice tied the game after the Huskies had taken one-goal leads, and potted the insurance tally for her hat trick. Junior Heather Daley (Brewster, N.Y.) scored what proved to be the game-winning goal early in the third period.

Senior Talya Bent (Cranston, R.I.) and sophomore McKenna Russell (Stoughton, Mass.) scored for the Huskies.

Daley snapped a 2-2 tie at 1:57 of the final period as the Huskies turned the puck over trying to come out of their own zone. Daley was set up by juniors Hanna Skelley (Wolfeboro, N.H.) and Megan Ofner (Hamilton, N.J.) to beat USM rookie goaltender Courtney Davis (Woburn, Mass.) from 15 feet out in front.

Woodford added the insurance marker less than three minutes later as she came out from behind the net to curl a backhander through a scramble in front of Davis for her ninth goal of the season. Seniors Natasha Klinoff (Concord, Mass.) and Casey Stathopoulos (Waltham, Mass.) picked up the assists.

Southern Maine took a 1-0 lead at 2:43 of the first period as Bent scored for the second straight game banking a shot in off the left post. Freshman Emilee Burris (Brookfield, N.S.) and junior Chelsea Boucher (Gilford, N.H.) were credited with the assists.

Woodford got the equalizer for the Pioneers at 6:55 as her 30-foot shot from the slot area eluded Davis.

Russell gave the Huskies a 2-1 advantage 52 seconds into the second period as she collected an errant Pioneer pass and went in alone against junior goalie Amanda Fontaine (Northfield, Mass.). Russell put her hard wrist shot into the roof of the goal for her second score of the season.

Woodford again equalized for the Pioneers, this time at 16:23, with her top-shelf shot over Davis’ catching hand from 10 feet out.

Fontaine played a steady game in net for the Pioneers and finished with 23 saves, including nine in the final period. Davis, making her first collegiate start, stopped 16 shots.

The two teams will play the second half of their two-game series tomorrow afternoon (4:00 p.m.).

Southern Maine Holds Off Sacred Heart 2-1

GORHAM, Maine -- Senior Julia Pearl (Essex, Jct., Vt.) had a goal and an assist to lead the University of Southern Maine Huskies women’s ice hockey team to a 2-1 victory over the visiting Sacred Heart University Pioneers in non-conference action Wednesday afternoon at the USM Ice Arena.

The win snapped a five-game losing skid for the Huskies and gave them a split of their two-game series with the Pioneers. The Huskies improved to 3-8-1 on the season. The Division One independent Pioneers, who won Tuesday’s game 4-2, had their two-game winning streak stopped and fell to 5-7-0 overall.

Pearl gave the Huskies a 1-0 lead at 16:47 of the opening period as she tucked in the rebound of sophomore Katie Couture’s (Harrisville, R.I.) shot. Sophomore Lynn Kozlowski (Stoneham, Mass.) set the play in motion from the right-wing corner sending the puck to Couture out in front. SHU junior goalie Nicole Magee (Burlington, Mass.) made the save on Couture, but the rebound went right to Pearl at the left post and the senior tri-captain slipped it into the open side for her first goal of the season.

The Huskies kept the pressure on Magee in the second period, but the junior stopped seven shots to keep the home side from adding to its lead.

Early in the third period, Pearl triggered the play that resulted in what proved to be the game-winning tally. Pearl’s pass sent Kozlowski and Couture in on a 2-on-1. Kozlowski dropped the puck to Couture who waited, then rifled a shot past Magee for her fifth marker of the season.

The Pioneers made things interesting in the final three minutes as junior Heather Daley (Brewster, N.Y.) converted a set-up from classmate Hanna Skelly (Wolfeboro, N.H.) and senior Brianna Connolly (Duxbury, Mass.) that cut the Huskies’ lead to one.

Magee was lifted with 43 seconds to play for the extra attacker, but the Huskies were able to pin the Pioneers in their own zone to run out the clock.

USM senior goalie Liz Bergstrom (Chanhassen, Minn.) earned her third win of the season stopping 16 shots, including nine in the final period. Magee finished with 23 saves.

Southern Maine returns to league play this Saturday (1:00 p.m.) hosting Salve Regina University. Sacred Heart will begin a two-game series with the University of New England on Friday (4:00 p.m.).

Salve Regina Holds Off Southern Maine 2-1

GORHAM, Maine -- Senior Michaela Chiuccariello (Winchester, Mass.) and junior Danielle Phalon (Stoneham, Mass.) each had a goal and an assist as the visiting Salve Regina University Seahawks held off the University of Southern Maine Huskies 2-1 in an ECAC Women’s East game Saturday afternoon at the USM Ice Arena.

The victory snapped a three-game (0-2-1) winless stretch for the Seahawks, and improved their record to 4-5-1 overall and 4-3-0 in the league. The Huskies fell to 3-9-1 overall and 2-4-1 in the league.

After a scoreless first period, the Seahawks scored twice on nearly identical plays in a span of 2:52. Phalon put the Seahawks on the board at 3:12 as she and Chiuccariello went in on a 2-on-1. Chiuccariello made the pass and Phalon buried the shot for her sixth goal of the season.

The roles were reverse on the next Seahawk goal as Phalon was the playmaker and Chiuccariello the goal scorer. USM senior goalie Liz Bergstrom (Chanhassen, Minn.) got a piece of the shot, but the puck just trickled over the line at 6:04. The Seahawk score came just moments after sophomore goalie Colleen Marcik (Madison, Conn.) stopped USM sophomore McKenna Russell (Stoughton, Mass.) on a breakaway.

The Huskies stepped up their pressure in third period and finally broke through against Marcik midway into the period. Sophomore Katie Couture (Harrisville, R.I.) scored her team-leading sixth goal of the season with a wrist shot after taking a drop pass from junior Cassandra Sherman (North Smithfield, R.I.). Senior Talya Bent (Cranston, R.I.) picked up the second assist.

In the final minute, the Huskies tried to get Bergstrom off for the extra attacker, but the Seahawks killed much of the clock. A late SRU penalty gave the Huskies one last bid to force the game into overtime, but Marcik held firm to deny a tying goal.

Marcik finished the game stopping 20 shots to improve her record to 3-4-1. Bergstrom had 21 saves for the Huskies.

Southern Maine returns to the ice on Tuesday evening (7:00 p.m.) when it hosts Bowdoin College for a non-conference game. Salve Regina’s next game will also be Tuesday evening (7:30 p.m.) at Trinity College.

Southern Maine Upsets #10 Bowdoin 6-3

GORHAM, Maine -- Sophomores Ally Vanidestine (Bangor, Maine) and Lynn Kozlowski (Stoneham, Mass.) each scored two goals as the University of Southern Maine Huskies women’s ice hockey upset the 10th-ranked Bowdoin College Polar Bears 6-3 in non-conference action Tuesday evening at the USM Ice Arena.

The win was the Huskies first ever against the Polar Bears in 22 games dating back to the series beginning on January 9, 1999. The Huskies improved their overall record to 4-9-1. The Polar Bears, ranked 10th in this week’s USCHO.com Division III poll, lost for the second time in the last three games to slide to 7-3-2 on the season.

The six goals scored were a season high for the Huskies, and the most since they potted half a dozen against New England College on November 5, 2013. The multiple-goal games were the first of their careers for Vanidestine and Kozlowski.

Junior Chelsea Boucher (Gilford, N.H.) had a goal and two assists, and sophomore Katie Couture (Harrisville, R.I.) had two assists for the Huskies. Senior goalie Liz Bergstrom (Chanhassen, Minn.) played a strong game stopping 32 shots, including 27 over the final two periods.

Junior Rachel Kennedy (Trumbull, Conn.) and sophomore Marne Gallant (Grosse Pointe Woods, Mich.) each had a goal and an assist for the Polar Bears. Senior Maddie Baird (Dundas, Ont.) had a goal, and sophomore Ariana Bourque (West Barnstable, Mass.) chipped in two assists.

Junior Beth Findley (Hingham, Mass.) drew the start in goal for the Polar Bears and had 12 saves before being lifted for sophomore Lan Crofton (Milton, Mass.) with 5:35 to play. Crofton had two saves in 1:38 before heading to the bench for the extra skater.

USM grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first period on an unassisted goal by Boucher and a short-handed tally by Vanidestine.

Bowdoin turned up the intensity in the middle period and was rewarded when Gallant scored from the high slot area. Bowdoin outshot USM 15-5 in the period, but Bergstrom stood tall and got some help from the pipes as Baird rang a shot off the left post.

The Huskies scored twice in a 27-second span to increase their margin to 4-1. Kozlowski scored a power-play goal at 7:06 from Couture and Boucher. Vanidestine scored her second knocking in the rebound of a shot from junior Kaleigh Heath (Jericho, Vt.).

Bowdoin got one back at 12:22 when Kennedy scored her sixth of the season from just outside the left side of the cage. Senior Julia Pearl (Essex Jct., Vt.) restored the Huskies’ three-goal edge when she slipped a shot inside the near post on Findley.

Baird scored a power-play goal for Bowdoin at 16:22 from Kennedy and Bourque before Kozlowski closed the scoring with an unassisted empty-net, short-handed tally at 17:53.

Southern Maine returns to ECAC Women’s East play this Friday (4:00 p.m.) when it host Manhattanville College. Bowdoin will travel to Wesleyan University for a two-game NESCAC series this Friday (7:00 p.m.) and Saturday (3:00 p.m.).

Manhattanville Tops Southern Maine 3-1

GORHAM, Maine -- Senior goalie Kirsten Shaughnessy (Le Center, Minn.) stopped 16 shots and three different players scored as visiting Manhattanville College defeated the University of Southern Maine 3-1 in ECAC Women’s East play Friday at the USM Ice Arena.

The victory snapped a two-game losing skid for the Valiants, and improved their record to 5-6-3 overall and 4-2-1 in conference play. The Huskies fell to 4-10-1 overall and 2-5-1 in the league.

Shaughnessy was staked to a 2-0 lead in the first period and made it stand up. The senior stopped nine shots in the third period as the Huskies pressed the offense trying to overcome a two-goal deficit.

Sophomore Kayley Romano (Viera, Fla.) put the visitors on the board at 5:29 of the opening period firing home the rebound of a shot taken by classmate Taryn Harris (Morrison, Colo.). Harris’ shot from about 20 feet out was stopped by USM senior goalie Liz Bergstrom (Chanhassen, Minn.), but the rebound went right out to Romano who made no mistake with her shot. The goal was the first of the season for Romano.

Rookie Sarah Sinning (Southold, N.Y.) doubled the Valiants’ edge with a power-play marker at 18:52. Sinning tipped a shot taken by rookie Maeve O’Brien (Chicago, Ill.) past Bergstrom for her third goal.

Southern Maine cut the margin in half in the second period when senior Julia Pearl (Essex Jct., Vt.) banked a shot off the left post past Shaughnessy at 16:19 for her third goal of the season. Sophomores Ally Vanidestine (Bangor, Maine) and McKenna Russell (Stoughton, Mass.) picked up the assists on the play. Pearl’s shot was the Huskies only shot on goal in the period.

Less than two minutes later, the Valiants converted another power-play opportunity for a 3-1 lead. Senior Sydney Asselstine (Hartington, Ont.) scored her second goal of the campaign knocking in the rebound of senior Rachel Morrison’s (Ridgefield, Conn.) shot.

Down two with a period to play, the Huskies generated nine shots on Shaughnessy, but were unable to put the puck in the net. The Huskies had two late power plays, including 15 seconds with a 5-on-3 advantage, but could not capitalize.

Bergstrom finished the game with 17 saves. Manhattanville was successful on 2 of 3 power plays while Southern Maine was 0 for 4 with the extra skater.

Southern Maine hits the road for the first time since before Thanksgiving next weekend traveling to Holy Cross on Friday (3:00 p.m.) for an ECAC Women’s East game. Manhattanville will play at the University of New England tomorrow afternoon (3:00 p.m.).

WOMEN'S HOCKEY DROPS LEAGUE GAME TO CAMELS

NEW LONDON, Conn. -- Jess Thulin stopped 34 shots in goal, but the Colby College women's hockey team's late rally fell short in a 3-2 loss at Connecticut College on Friday night at Dayton Arena.

Sophomore forward Alexa de la Guardia buried a shot from the mid slot area with 5:26 remaining to put the Camels on top 3-1 for a goal that proved to be the difference.

The Camels improved their record to 9-2-3 and are 4-1-2 in NESCAC play. The Mules fell to 6-7 with a 0-7 mark in conference action.

Colby enjoyed a 10-to-4 shot advantage in the opening period but the two sides headed to the locker room knotted up in a scoreless draw.

But in the middle period, the Camels buried a pair of power play goals 1:58 apart to take control of the game.

With 5:48 left in the second, sophomore Steph Izzi lifted a wrist shot into the netting to put the Camels on top 1-0.

Then, with 3:50 remaining in the frame, Izzi assisted Cassie Hunter, who buried a shot from the point to double the Camels advantage.

Connecticut College senior Kelsie Fralick finished with 27 saves in the contest. With 30 seconds remaining in the middle period, Fralick broke up a 2-on-1 situation when she denied Maddie Dewhirst from point-blank range.

But with just 5.4 seconds remaining in the second, Delaney Flynn put the Mules on the scoreboard and halved the Camel advantage to make it a 2-1 Connecticut College lead after two periods of play.

With 5:36 remaining, Thulin made a save on Katlyn Paiva’s shot to keep the game close.

But with 5:26 remaining, the Camels added the critical insurance marker when Bogue assisted de la Guardia for her second goal of the season.

Dewhirst pulled the visitors to within 3-2 with Colby’s goal emptied at 19:23 of the third. Carolyn Fuwa and Kailey Buxbaum had assists on the play.
