BOSTON - Sophomore Shelby Herrington and senior Kendall Coyne each scored twice to help the No. 10 Northeastern women's hockey team (2-0-1) nip Syracuse, 5-4, on Friday afternoon at Matthews Arena.

Sophomore Taytum Clairmont netted the game-winning goal in the third period, while senior Jordan Krause and sophomore Lauren Kelly chipped in two assists apiece.

Junior Sarah Foss picked up her first win of the 2015-16 season with 33 saves, including 11 in a frantic third period, as NU stayed unbeaten and dropped the Orange to 0-2-0.

Goal Recaps

- Coyne lit the lamp just 50 seconds into the first period with a backhand finish on a breakaway.

- The senior scored again less than four minutes later, taking a feed from sophomore Denisa Krizova in the right corner, before cutting to the net and stashing home her sixth goal in the first three games.

- Syracuse cut the deficit to 2-1 when Nicole Ferrara nudged a shot by Foss at the 7:00 mark.

- The Huskies responded with a power-play goal from Herrington at 12:05 to make it 3-1. After SU netminder Jenn Gilligan (23 saves) denied Herrington on a tipped shot in front, the Huskies' sophomore followed the play and buried the rebound on the doorstep.

- The Orange closed out a five-goal first period when Megan Quinn's point shot zipped through traffic and over the shoulder of Foss to make it 3-2 at 15:18.

- Herrington recorded her first collegiate two-goal game when she netted her third goal of the year at 17:35 of the second period. After some nifty work by sophomore Christina Zalewski along the boards, freshman Kasidy Anderson picked up the puck and centered for a cutting Herrington, who swatted it by Gilligan to make it 4-2 late in the frame.

- Syracuse cut the deficit to 4-3 just seven seconds into the third on a twisted wrister by Melissa Piacentini from the top of the left circle.

- Northeastern responded with a crucial insurance goal at the 14:15 mark. On another power play, Kelly tossed a shot at the net from the left circle that was redirected home by Clairmont to make it 5-3.

- Syracuse again pulled back within one at 16:47 when Piacentini jammed home a loose puck on the doorstep after Nicole Ferrara's initial shot struck the right post.

Stats of the Game

- Herrington notched her first collegiate two-goal game.

- Zalewski recorded a point for the third straight game.
