UMass Boston skates past PSU Women’s Ice Hockey

         WATERVILLE VALLEY, N.H. - Freshman Theresa Horn (New Boston, N.H.) scored two goals Saturday afternoon to lead the University of Massachusetts Boston to a 6-0 victory over Plymouth State University in an ECAC Women's East Conference ice hockey game at Waterville Valley Ice Arena.

         The story of the game was in the Panther goal, where junior Lindsay DeLorie (Holliston, Mass.) was peppered with 88 shots on goal. DeLorie made 82 saves, which is the third-highest total in NCAA Division III women's hockey history.  DeLorie also made 72 saves in Friday night's 8-0 loss to Saint Anselm College.

         Freshman goalie Aly Garnett (Winthrop, Mass.) stopped all 20 shots she faced at the other end to post her first career shutout for the Beacons.

         UMB had a 27-7 advantage in shots in the first period, but got the only score with four seconds left in the period on a goal by freshman Rachel Sousa (Woburn, Mass.).  It took only 54 seconds of the second period for junior Maria Guanci (Everett, Mass.) to score a short-handed goal to extend UMB's lead to 2-0, and senior Lauren O'Connor (Everett, Mass.) added a power play goal at 9:30 to make it 3-0.

         Horn scored her first of the game at 16:37 of the second, and added another at 12:57 of the third period. Sophomore Sandy Parlato (Needham, Mass.) rounded out the scoring for the Beacons at 17:13 of the third period.  Sophomore Katelyn Pohlman (Newton, Mass.) and freshman Jazz Webber (Winslow, Maine) each collected two assists for UMB.

         UMB improves to 11-8-0 overall and remains tied with Holy Cross for third place in the ECAC East with a 9-5-0 league record. PSU, which is in its first season in the ECAC East, falls to 0-14-1 overall and 0-12-1 in conference play.

         PSU is on the road next weekend for conference games Friday at Southern Maine and Saturday at New England College.  UMB, which has won five of its last six, plays its next three games at home, beginning next Saturday against league-leading Saint Anselm (1:00 p.m.)
