BRUNSWICK, Maine - Ten different players scored as the Bowdoin College women's ice hockey team continued its recent offensive outburst Tuesday evening in a 15-0 win over Plymouth State University. The Polar Bears have outscored their opponents 22-0 over the last two games and improve to 9-7-2 overall this year. The Panthers fall to 0-17-0 with the loss.
The Polar Bears did not waste any time and struck first less than two minutes into the game. Kayte Holtz found a wide open Kim Tess-Wanat who fired an uncontested shot past the top right shoulder of Panthers' goaltender, Nicole Provencher, at 1:52. Katie Herter tallied the next score after Stephanie Ludy found her streaking into the slot at 7:43.
Less than a minute later, Holtz fired a one-timer past Provencher on a pass from Jill Campbell. After killing a penalty the Polar Bears quickly worked the puck down the ice and 18 found Holtz who then settled the aerial pass and walked untouched in the PSU zone to beat Provencher. Kenzie Novak tallied the last of the period on a pass from Kate Pokrass.
Kendra Sweet's first goal of the season started the second period scoring for Bowdoin and opened a flurry of scoring as the Polar Bears posted eight in the second stanza. Tess-Wanat, Shana Natelson, Alex Chlebeck, Novak, Dominique Lozzi and Kate Pokrass also scored in the frame while Holtz rounded out her hat trick. Bowdoin capped the night with a pair of third-period scores from Stephanie Ludy.
Holtz finished with three goals and an assist while Jill Campbell notched four assists for the hosts. WTara Connolly earned her first collegiate win and shutout by making four saves. Provencher stopped 34 in the loss for Plymouth State.
PSU continues its six-game road trip with an ECAC East Conference game Friday evening at Manhattanville College (7:00 p.m.)
