College Hockey:
Huskies Use Third Period To Pull Away From Braves

— For the second consecutive night, Connecticut scored a pair of third-period goals to hold off Quinnipiac. On Saturday, the Huskies netted two tallies in the final stanza to create some breathing room for themselves in a 4-1 win over the Braves at the Northford Ice Pavilion.

Quinnipiac opened the scoring at the 18:52 mark of the first period on a goal from Liz Jankowski. Natalie Phelps and Debbie Beaudoin assisted on the tally.

However, UConn answered just 32 seconds later on a marker from Tiffany Owens that knotted the game at 1-1.

The Huskies went ahead for good at 14:42 of the second on their first of three straight power-play goals. Kim Berry scored the eventual game-winner as UConn carried a 2-1 lead into the final period.

Jacquelyn McGuire made it 3-1 at 7:22 of the third on a power play before Stephanie Snow sealed the game with another extra-man tally at 19:02.

Shannon Connolly finished the night with three assists for the Huskies in the winning cause.

Quinnipiac goaltender Mel Courtemanche turned aside 39 shots in the loss for the Braves.
