College Hockey:
New Hampshire Takes Inaugural Women’s Championship

— New Hampshire won the first-ever American Women’s College Hockey Alliance tournament final Saturday at Boston’s FleetCenter, and with it the title of unofficial Division I champion. The Wildcats topped the Brown Bears 4-1, avenging a defeat in the ECAC playoff championship.

Melissa Renison scored first for Brown just over two minutes into the game, but UNH got four unanswered goals by Tina Carrabba, Kali Wilson, Kerry Maher and Melissa McKenzie to earn the win. UNH netminder Alicia Roberts made 11 saves for the Wildcats, while Ali Brewer stopped 18 for the Bears.

UNH defenseman Winny Brodt, who scored a goal in the semifinals Friday and tallied two assists Saturday, was the Most Valuable Player.

In the third-place game, Northeastern shut out Minnesota 4-0.
