PSU Women’s Ice Hockey blanked by Saint Anselm

Panther goalies Lindqvist and Trupp combine for 61 saves

            MANCHESTER, N.H. – The Saint Anselm College women's ice hockey team exploded for nine goals on Saturday afternoon in a 9-0 victory over visiting Plymouth State University in New England Hockey Conference action.

            Goalie Hannah Synnott (Montclair, N.J.) earned her fourth shutout of the season by stopping all five shots she faced from the Panthers (6-10, 2-6 NEHC), and 13 different players registered at least a point for the Hawks (12-2, 6-2 NEHC) in the victory.

            The Hawks held a 70-5 advantage in shots on goal for the game and kept Plymouth State off the board by killing all four power plays they faced. Plymouth State freshman Emelie Lindqvist (Gullerasen, Sweden) stopped 34 saves in the setback before being replaced by sophomore Mariah Trupp (Topeka, Kansas), who made 27 saves of her own, including 25 in the third period.

            Alex Starzyk (Enfield, Conn.) and Victoria Shea (Middleton, Mass.) scored two goals apiece for the Hawks, with Starzyk also picking up an assist for a three point day. Sara McNamara (Danbury, Conn.), Halle Kent (Lake Placid, N.Y.), Alex Kazmer (Crystal Lake, Ill.) and Martha Findley (Duxbury, Mass.) each scored a goal and had an assist, with Paige Gorecki (Homer Glen, Ill.) adding the other goal.

            PSU returns home to host Manhattanville College and Salve Regina University in a weekend series next weekend, while the Hawks continue their seven game home stand on Tuesday night when they host New England College at 7:00 p.m. in NEHC action at Sullivan Arena.
