BOSTON - Junior Hayley Scamurra scored two goals and classmate Sarah Foss turned away 23 shots to lift the No. 8 Northeastern women's hockey team (16-4-1, 11-2-0 WHEA) to its fifth straight win, 4-2, over New Hampshire (8-15-1, 5-9-0 WHEA) on Saturday at Matthews Arena.
Senior Jordan Krause chipped in a goal and an assist for her seventh multi-point effort of the season, and sophomore Shelby Herrington netted the eventual game-winner as NU scored three goals in the second period to claim a hard-earned win.
- Northeastern took a 1-0 lead late in the first period following some hard work by redshirt junior Paige Savage in the UNH zone. After picking off an attempted clearance, Savage skated in on goal and tested UNH netminder Kyra Smith (31 saves) with a pair of shots in close. Smith could not corral the loose puck, which popped out to Krause at the right circle for a blast that tipped off the right post and in at the 17:45 mark.
- The Huskies wasted no time adding to the lead out of the intermission, tacking on a second goal 31 seconds into the middle frame. After some good offensive zone pressure, sophomore Ainsley MacMillan threw the puck towards the front of the net for Scamurra to redirect home in heavy traffic.
- UNH quickly erased the deficit with two goals by Jonna Curtis in a span of 4:23 to tie the score at 2-2 late in the second.
- Northeastern turned the tides back in its favor, however, with two goals in a span of 3:24 to reestablish a two-goal cushion. Herrington notched the first at 15:21 of the second period with a wrister from between the circles to make it 3-2. Scamurra then netted her second of the game at 18:45 when she fired home a rebound following a shot by senior Tori Hickel.
