Nov. 21: The St. Lawrence University women's hockey team, which jumped to No. 4 in the national polls after last weekend's sweep of Dartmouth and Harvard, suffered their first set back in ECAC Hockey play this season as they fell to Princeton University by the score of 4-2 at Hobey Baker Rink on Friday night.
The Saints (7-2-2, 4-1-0) outshot the Tigers (4-5-0, 2-3-0) by a 30-18 margin, allowing the home team only six shots on goal in the final 40 minutes of hockey. However, Princeton would use three goals in the second period, including two power play tallies, to pick up the upset.
"I thought we skated hard all night and had a bunch of chances that we just didn't take advantage of," said Saints' head coach Chris Wells. "(Kristen) Young was solid in net for them and they've got a tough team that can skate with anyone in the country."
Sasha Sherry would give Princeton a 1-0 lead at 8:58 of the first period while skating on a power play chance. Sherry's bid got past St. Lawrence junior goalie Brittony Chartier, with assists going to Katherine Dineen and Paula Romanchuk.
The Saints would answer to tie the score at 1-1 to close first period, as first-year student Vanessa Emond picked up her second collegiate goal at 16:05, with assists going to junior defenseman Brittaney Maschmeyer and senior forward Alison Domenico.
