WATERVILLE VALLEY, N.H. – Sophomore Shannon McNulty (Dover, N.H.) and freshman Britanne Michaud (Lewiston, Maine) registered a goal and an assist each Saturday evening to lead Norwich University to a 4-0 victory over Plymouth State University in ECAC Women’s East Ice Hockey action at Waterville Valley Ice Arena.
The outcome spoiled an outstanding performance by PSU junior goaltender goalie Lindsay DeLorie (Holliston, Mass.), who finished with a career-high 76 saves. She made 22 stops in the opening period and 27 in each of the last two frames. The 76 saves ties for the fifth most number saves in a game in NCAA Division III women’s ice hockey history.
After a scoreless first period, sophomore Annie DiVito (Arlington, Mass.) put the Cadets on the board three minutes into the second period. McNulty made it a 2-0 game at the 14:02 mark, and freshman Kelly Cone (Manchester, Vt.) added a power play goal less than three minutes later to give Norwich a 3-0 lead heading into the third period. Michaud added a goal in the first minute of the third period to round out the scoring.
Freshman Cindy Fortin (Quebec City, Que.) earned the shutout in the Norwich goal, saving all eight shots she faced.
Norwich is back in action Sunday with another ECAC East game at Castleton State (3:00 p.m.) PSU travels to Holy Cross on Tuesday (7:00 p.m.)
