THINGS TO NOTE •
BROWN Brown is coming off its best weekend in recent memory, as the Bears secured two huge league wins against nationally-ranked opponents. They defeated No. 9/10 Colgate 4-3 on Friday night before coming from behind on Saturday to take down No. 6 Cornell. They’ll look to stay hot this weekend with two more league games at Union and RPI.
Cornell snuck out a hard fought 4-3 win over Yale on Friday night, using two goals in a 0:47 second span to tie and then take the lead. The team was not able to continue the momentum on Saturday however, dropping its first game of the season at Brown. The Big Red will have a Saturday/ Sunday series at Mercyhurst this weekend.
Princeton remains undefeated in league play after going 1-0-1 this past weekend. Carly Bullock is leading the charge for the Tigers, having already scored eight goals in just the first six games of the season. They’ll take a weekend off of league play coming up, but will travel to Syracuse for a pair of games against the Orange on Saturday and Sunday.
After navigating a difficult nonleague schedule to begin the year, St. Lawrence looked strong in its first ECAC Hockey weekend, shutting out both RPI and Union while scoring eight goals. The Saints continue to find production from up and down the bench, as five different skaters scored goals in Friday nights win over RPI.
CLARKSON After dropping a non-league game at St. Lawrence over two weeks ago, Clarkson has rattled off five straight wins, improving to 9-1 on the season. T.T. Cianfarano was the impact player this past weekend, registering seven points to lift the Golden Knights over Union and RPI. Clarkson will not be in action this weekend.
Dartmouth picked up its first win of the season on Saturday against Quinnipiac thanks to an overtime goal from Jennifer Costa. Seven different players registered a point in the game for the Big Green. They’ll look to continue that momentum this weekeend when they host RIT for a pair of games on Friday and Saturday.
Quinnipiac’s five-game unbeaten streak came to an end on Saturday with an overtime loss against Dartmouth. Nonetheless, the Bobcats have hopped out to a solid start in league play, currrently tied for second in the standings with six points. Quinnipiac will not be in action this weekend.
Union had a tough opening weekend to league play with matchups against two nationally ranked opponents in No. 3 Clarkson and No. 9 St. Lawrence. Katelynn Russ scored the lone goal for the Dutchwomen over the weekend. They’ll be back at Messa Rink this weekend when they host Yale and Brown.
Colgate dropped its first league game of the year on Friday at Brown, but bounced back Saturday afternoon to defeat Yale 5-2. The Raiders will have a tough non-league matchup this weekend in Robert Morris, which currently sits at 6-5-1 on the year. Shae Labbe and Malia Schneider are leading the offensive charge for Colgate with 11 points apiece.
Harvard fell 1-0 in a defensive battle against Quinnipiac on Friday, but picked up another league point Saturday afternoon, tying Princeton 2-2. Freshman Lindsay Reed continues to shine in net for the Crimson, stopping 58 of the 61 shots she faced over the weekend. Harvard will not be in action this weekend.
RPI dropped its first two league games of the season against No. 9/10 St. Lawrence and No. 3 Clarkson this past weekend. The Engineers will have a chance to get on the league scoreboard this weekend when they host Brown and Yale.
Despite Rebecca Foggia scoring a pair of goals for the Bulldogs over the weekend, the team dropped to 0-4 after falling to Colgate and Cornell. They’ll look to get on the league scoreboard this weekend with a trip to Union and RPI.
