Freshman Gill Carroll (Guilford, Conn.) led the Panthers with her first two goals of the season, including the first of the game just 10 minutes in. Classmate Katherine Goller (Williston, Vt.) also knocked one in for the Panthers as the home team led 3-0 midway through the opening frame. PSU closed out the first half with unanswered goals from juniors Lauren Lavery (Nashua, N.H./Nashua South) and Stacy DiSabato (Manchester, N.H./Central) and sophomores Sarah Daglis (Berlin, Conn.) and Rebecca Wilson (Clinton, Conn.)
The Panthers poured it on in the second half as seniors Nicole Bedard (Windham, N.H./Alvirne) and Kelsea Anderson (Rye, N.H./Portsmouth) finished off the scoring. PSU finished with a 30-3 advantage in shots.
