Manhattanville too much for PSU Women’s Ice Hockey

December 7th, 2007 by Adam

            RYE, N.Y. – The Manhattanville College women’s ice hockey team scored eight goals in the second period Friday night en route to tallying double-digit goals for the first time this season as the Valiants defeated Plymouth State University 11-0 in ECAC Women’s East Conference action at the Playland Ice Casino.

            The Valiants, ranked seventh in this week’s Division III Women’s national poll, improved to 5-2-0 overall and 4-1-0 in the ECAC East, while the Panthers are still looking for their first win of the season after six tries.  PSU is a second-year varsity program in its first year in the ECAC East.

            Senior Lyndsay Letourneau (Lewiston, Maine) scored her first career goal in the third period to cap Manhattanville’s scoring surge which saw the Valiants bombard Plymouth State goalie Lindsay DeLorie (Holliston, Mass.) with 54 shots.  Letourneau also assisted on two goals for a career high three-points.

            As many as 13 Valiants registered at least one point, with eight earning multi-point games.  Danielle Mazurek (Eaglesham, Alberta) put together an impressive night with a goal and a career-high four assists.  Danielle Nagymarosi (Uxbridge, Ontario) and Monique Rafferty (Clifton Park, N.Y.) each scored twice and Nagymarosi added an assist.

            The teams will play again Saturday in a matinee rematch; the puck drops at 3:00 p.m. at the Playland Ice Casino.
