Weekend wrap: Feb. 5

Connecticut at No. 6 Boston College
UConn jumped out to a 3-0 first period lead with goals by Catherine Crawley, Kayla Mee and Leah Lum. They added another goal in the second, by Kelly Harris, to make it 4-1 before BC scored three unanswered to earn the 4-4 tie. Megan Keller, Makenna Newkirk, Caroline Ross and Caitrin Lonergan were the scorers for the Eagles.

Vermont at New Hampshire
On Friday, New Hampshire came from behind to earn a 3-3 tie with the Catamounts. Vermont jumped out to a 2-0 lead with first-period goals from Saana Valkama and Victoria Andreakos. Ali Praus narrowed the gap for UNH in the second before Eve-Audrey Picard made it 3-1 Vermont midway through the final frame. Hannah Touzos brought the lead to one and Jonna Curtis’ short-handed goal with under four to go gave UNH the tie. It was her 50th career goal. On Saturday, Vermont once again jumped out to a lead and it was too much to overcome for the Wildcats. Katherine Pate, Rachael Ade and Cassidy Campeau scored for the Catamounts to make it 3-0 through two. Jenna Rheault scored for UNH near the end of the third to break up the shutout.

Providence at Northeastern
The teams traded goals throughout the game, but it was Northeastern that scored first and last to wrap up the 4-3 overtime win. A late third-period penalty gave the Huskies the advantage in overtime and Lauren Kelly netted the power play game-winner. McKenna Brand scored her NCAA-leading 23rd goal and Paige Savage broke the Northeastern program record for games played at 142.

Yale at No. 9 Princeton
Emma Vlasic opened the scoring for Yale in the first period. Cassidy Tucker evened the score in the second period for Princeton. It was Phoebe Staenz’s power-play goal with less than a minute to go that would decide it. Yale added an empty-net goal just before the buzzer to give the Bulldogs the 3-1 upset win.

No. 5 St. Lawrence at Harvard
Kalie Grant and Kennedy Marchment put St. Lawrence up 2-0 and that would be enough to secure the win. The Crimson outshot the Saints 33-27, but couldn’t overcome the deficit. Harvard’s Kyra Colbert scored her first career goal to prevent the shutout and make it 2-1.

No. 3 Clarkson at Harvard
Cayley Mercer opened the scoring for Clarkson with a power-play goal early in the second. Harvard answered with a power-play goal by Haley Mullins and an even-strength goal by Chelsea Ziadie. That looked like it might be enough for Harvard to earn the win, by Rhyen McGill scored a power-play goal with just 48 seconds to go to salvage the tie for Clarkson.

The rest of the top 10
No. 1 Wisconsin at Bemidji State
Emily Clark scored four goals, Annie Pankowski had a goal and four assists, and Sarah Nurse had six assists as the Badgers swept Bemidji State, 4-2, 6-1.

Lara Stalder scored twice in UMD’s sweep of North Dakota. The Bulldogs won 2-0 and 2-1.

    • wouldn’t be surprised to see more with teams like BU, MIchigan, Sconi playin for there lives, CC just went up 2-0 on the Gophs

        • they seemed uninspired. i’m hoping they have a switch that they are waiting to turn on, nobody has the talent we do this year

  1. Union up big on Yale. Number about to go to 14.

    (And I’m pretty sure a Union win means Wisconsin can’t get to 14. So they’ll have to win one more on the ice.)

    • (I guess that’s not-quite correct in that Union themselves will be in the #14 or so slot. But for Wisconsin, I don’t think that makes any difference.)

  2. it is now 14 after a lazy uninspired effort by the gophers tonight, lackluster effort, played like it was an exhibition game

  3. Quinni? Hmmm. Minne Rodents? Hmmm. BC Eagles? Hmmm. Sioux-eeeeee? Hmmm. Yale Bulldogs? Hmmm. Minne State? Hmmm. Niagara? Hmmm. St. Cloud? Hmmm.
    Best team I’ve seen in the last two days is the UNION SKATING DUTCHMEN!

  4. Too many “locks” in the latest PWR took a “no urgency” approach to year-end conference tournaments, while Bubble teams played with energy to Play on. Regular season should be weighted along with SOS, not TUC.
