(Game Box

         WATERVILLE VALLEY, N.H. - Senior Kathleen Twomey (Londonderry, N.H.), junior Daniella Lyons (Greene, Mass.) and freshman Cierra Romaldo (Chuluota, Fla.) registered two goals and one assist each Saturday afternoon as Saint Anselm College defeated Plymouth State University, 9-0, in an ECAC Women's East Conference ice hockey game at Waterville Valley Arena.

         The Hawks rebounded from a 0-0 tie at Southern Maine on Friday night with a nine-goal outburst against the Panthers.  Saint Anselm out-shot the home team by a whopping 68-6 count, and tallied three power play goals.  The Hawks are now 14-5-2 overall and 11-4-1 in the ECAC East, while PSU remains winless after 18 games.

         Senior Bianca DeSantis (Georgetown, Maine) added a goal and three assists for the winners, while classmate Kelsey Johnson (Byfield, Mass.) and freshman Liz Burg (Minneapolis, Minn.) also scored in the victory.  Freshman Molly Curl (Danvers, Mass.) collected four assists.

         Saint Anselm freshman goalie Amy Zappen (Huntington Beach, Calif.) needed to make just six saves to post her third shutout. PSU senior Lindsay DeLorie (Holliston, Mass.), who leads the nation in saves, made 59 stops for PSU, her second highest total in a game this season.

         Both teams play ECAC East games again next Friday, Saint Anselm hosting Manhattanville at 4:00 p.m. and PSU entertaining UMass Boston at 6:00 p.m.
