Backup goalie from Presque Isle having positive impact on 9th-ranked UMaine women’s hockey team

...“I’m a strong believer that everyone has a role on a team. If it means not playing right now, it’s fine. Carly (starting goalie Carly Jackson) is absolutely my best friend on the team. We both believe in doing what is best for the team,” said Flynn, who received an academic scholarship to attend UMaine.

UMaine head coach Richard Reichenbach called Flynn “one of the most influential players on our team.

“Everyone loves her and trusts her,” said Reichenbach. “She works extremely hard every day and has a great attitude. She always has a smile on her face.”

Reichenbach said Flynn has been a key factor in creating a healthy culture on a team that is the most diverse in women’s Division I hockey with players from eight different countries. ... ckey-team/

No. 9 Maine Drops Annual Skating Strides Game to Merrimack, 4-2

ORONO, Maine – Despite tying up the score twice in the first and second period, the No. 9 Black Bears struggled to fend off the Warriors from doubling their score late in the game as Maine (16-7-3, 10-4-2 WHEA) fell to Merrimack College (9-15-3, 4-11-2 WHEA), 4-2, on Saturday afternoon during their annual 'Skating Strides Against Breast Cancer Game' sponsored by FairPoint Communications.

Leading scorer for the Warriors, Katelyn Rae, struck gold today, scoring all four of Merrimack's goals to lead them to victory, accumulating 18 goals at this point in the season. Her first was just 1:33 into the match breaking away to a one-on-one with Carly Jackson in net. After Maine tied up the score just minutes later, she reclaimed the one goal separation midway through the first period hitting the top-shelf with a wrist shot a stride away from Jackson.

Rae's third goal was captured just seconds into a 5-on-3 man advantage for Merrimack after two Maine players were sent to the penalty box. This goal once again broke the possibility of another tie-game for putting the Warriors ahead, 3-2. Her fourth and final goal was captured with 1:08 left on the clock in regulation. Maine had pulled Jackson just one minute prior and a lucky clear just barely knocked off the inside of the post into the net to finish out the match.

Lydia Murray tied up the score for Maine, 1-1, in the first period just 41 seconds following Rae's opening goal. She crashed the net reaching her stick out just in time to poke in a shot by Catherine Tufts into the back left corner just out of reach of Samantha Ridgewell in net. Alyson Matteau earned her 9th assist of the season putting the play into action.

Evening up the score, 2-2, midway through the second frame was Cailey Hutchison deflecting a rocket of a shot by Josefine Engmann from the point. Kicking off this scoring opportunity, Engmann earned her first NCAA point with the assist.

Six different players for the Warriors picked up assists by the end of the day. In between the pipes, Ridgewell achieved her sixth win of the season stopping 31 scoring opportunities. As for Jackson, she turned away 21 shots by Merrimack.

The Black Bears will be back on the road next weekend as the venture down to Storrs, CT for a two-game series against the University of Connecticut, starting with a puck drop at 7 p.m. on Friday night. ... k-4-2.aspx

Huskies Edge No. 9 Maine Women's Hockey in Overtime, 2-1
Jackson Tallies Career-High 45 Saves

STORRS, Conn. – Despite a thrilling game-tying goal in the final minute of play by Michelle Weis, the No. 9 Maine women's ice hockey team dropped the match, 2-1, to the University of Connecticut Huskies in overtime at the Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum on Friday evening.

The Huskies (8-11-8, 2-10-5 WHEA) pounced first, with a man advantage on the ice; Briana Colangelo worked the puck behind Maine's (16-8-3, 10-5-2 WHEA) net over to Morgan Wabick to escape the hovering defense. Wabick fed the puck inside to Natalie Snodgrass who chipped it up and over Carly Jackson's shoulder in net. UConn took the 1-0 lead midway through the power play, just 4:01 into the opening frame.

UConn continued to press Maine's defense in the second period, firing shots at Jackson, forcing her to make countless impressive saves as she stifled one scoring opportunity after another. By the end of the middle stanza, Jackson had nearly tripled her total saves to 34 as the Huskies remained relentless on the attack. ... e-2-1.aspx
