Norwich too much for PSU Women’s Ice Hockey

January 25th, 2006 by Adam

WATERVILLE VALLEY, N.H. – Sophomore Amanda Gage (St. Albans, Vt.) recorded three goals and an assist Wednesday evening to lead Norwich University past Plymouth State University, 7-1, in a women’s college ice hockey game at Waterville Valley Ice Arena.

The Cadets, who defeated PSU 3-1 earlier this season in Vermont, take the season series from the Panthers and improve to 9-2 on the year. The Panthers had their three-game winning streak stopped and dropped to 6-5.

Sophomore Hilary Davis (South Barre, Vt.) added two goals and an assist for the Cadets, and sophomore Ashley Westbrook (Bedford, N.H.) and freshman Becky Scully (Dartmouth, N.S.) chipped in with a goal and an assist apiece.

Senior Holly Williams (Wolfeboro, N.H.) scored the only goal for the Panthers, with assists from senior Kelly Williams (Canaan, N.H.) and freshman Ursula Volosevich (South Boston, Mass.)

After Norwich took a 2-0 lead in the first period, PSU cut the margin in half two minutes into the second frame. It was all Cadets the rest of the way, though, as they scored three goals in the middle period and added two insurance tallies in the third.

The Cadets finished with a 33-27 advantage in shots on goal. PSU freshman Lindsay DeLorie (Holliston, Mass.) and Norwich sophomore Courtney Miniter (South Meriden, Conn.) both finished with 26 saves.

The Panthers are off until next Wednesday (Feb. 1) when they host UMass Lowell at Waterville Valley (7::45 p.m.) Norwich is back in action Sunday with a home game vs. Bishop’s University (1:00 p.m.)
