(3) Cornell at St. Lawrence

The Big Red excelled on special teams en route to their 4-1 win. Amy Curlew opened the scoring on the power play midway through the first. St. Lawrence’s Rachel Teslak tied it up less than two minutes later. Curlew added a second goal two minutes after that to give Cornell the 2-1 lead. That’s how it would stay for another 41 minutes. In the final five minutes of the game, Grace Graham tallied a short-handed goal and one at even-strength to give Cornell the 4-1 win.

(3) Cornell at (6) Clarkson

Lindsay Browning and Marie-Pier Coulombe each had 28 saves as this game ended in a 1-1 tie. The game was scoreless into the third period. Izzy Daniel scored for Cornell, but Clarkson responded less than three minutes later with a power play goal from Elizabeth Giguere. An extra frame could not decide a winner.

Holy Cross at (4) Northeastern

Aline Mueller had a goal and two assists and Tessa Ward had two goals to lead Northeastern to a 6-0 conference win.

(5) Boston College at Connecticut

Taylor Wabick scored :55 into the game and her twin sister Morgan put one in the net on the power play midway through the first to put UConn up 2-0. Delaney Belinskas cut the lead in half, but that’s as close as the game would get. Viki Harkness’ goal with :14 left in the first period put the Huskies back up by two as they headed to the locker room with a 3-1 lead. Natalie Snodgrass’s goal made it 4-1 in the second period. Belinskas’ second goal close the gap to make it 4-2, but Harkness responded on the power play to earn Connecticut the 5-2 win. It was Boston College’s first loss of the season.

Colgate at (6) Clarkson

Elizabeth Giguere scored twice in less than two minutes midway through the second period and that would be enough to carry Clarkson to the win. Tanner Gates scored a short-handed goal just before the second period break to make it 2-1, but Colgate could not complete the comeback.

Harvard at (7) Princeton

Princeton out-shot Harvard 42-25, but Crimson goalie Lindsey Reed made 40 saves to help lead her team to a 6-2 win. Harvard jumped out to a 3-0 lead after the first period thanks to goals from Kat Hughes, Anne Bloomer and Emma Buckles. Sharon Frankel cut the lead to 3-1 with a goal midway through the second period, but Bloomer responded two minutes later to make it 4-1 Crimson. Dominique Petrie extended the lead to 5-1 with a power play tally before Mariah Keopple added an extra-attacker goal of her own to make it 5-2. Kristi Della Rovere added one more late in the third to make it a 6-2 Harvard win.

Dartmouth at (7) Princeton

Sharon Frankel put Princeton on the board first with a goal midway through the first period. CC Bowlby tied the game up before the first period break. The game stayed tied until Maggie Connors scored on a breakaway early in the third period to give the Tigers the 2-1 win.

(10) Boston University at Providence

Freshman Julia Nearis scored her team-leading sixth goal to give Boston University a 2-1 win. The game was scoreless until just before the halftime mark, when Nearis put the Terriers on the board with a goal from the right circle. Neve Van Pelt scored on the power play to tie the game for Providence early in the third, but it was Nearis, also on the player advantage, that would tally the game-winner 66 seconds later.
