BOSTON - Freshman Aerin Frankel pitched a 34-save shutout, while senior Taytum Clairmont and freshman Veronika Pettey each chipped in a goal and an assist as the Northeastern women's hockey team (15-15-3, 11-10-2 WHEA) celebrated Senior Day in style with a 4-0 triumph over Vermont (10-18-5, 7-13-4 WHEA) on Friday at Matthews Arena.
Junior Kasidy Anderson provided a power-play goal and senior McKenna Brand added a shorthanded, empty-netter to help the Huskies close out their regular-season home schedule on a winning note.
Frankel stopped 13 shots in the first period, eight in the second stanza, and 13 more in the third as Vermont held a 34-28 advantage in attempts on goal. The Briarcliff Manor, New York, native now has three shutouts in her rookie season.
Pettey was credited with the game-winning goal late in the first period when she sniped the top right corner from the right faceoff dot following a turnover caused by Tori Sullivan in the neutral zone.
The Huskies will be back in action on Sunday in the regular season finale at Providence at 2 p.m. Northeastern currently occupies the fourth and final home-ice slot for the WHEA playoffs, one point ahead of the New Hampshire Wildcats.
