STORRS, Conn. - Behind a strong second period that featured two scores, the UConn women's hockey team got back in the win column with a 4-1 victory over the Maine Black Bears Saturday afternoon.
After falling behind 1-0 early in the first period, UConn responded with four unanswered goals of its own, including two scores in under a minute during the second frame.
Four players had one goal apiece for the Huskies, while junior Catherine Crawley was the leading point-woman on the day after notching one goal and two assists.
Morgan Fisher defended the net with precision, recording 32 saves in the win as the Huskies moved to 6-5-1 overall.
3:36 | Lydia Murray finished up a two-on-zero rush in the zone to give Maine a 1-0 lead early in the first.
14:20 (Power Play) | Following a brief battle for the puck, Savannah Bouzide came out of the crowd with the puck fired a shot from the left crease mid skate. That shot missed just right but Leona Sim was there for the follow up, pushing the puck just over the glove of Loryn Porter.
3:45 (Power Play) | Morgan Wabick's shot from the right circle fluttered off the foot of Turner but Briana Colangelo collected the rebound and was able to tip the puck into the net, swindling it just underneath the pad of the Maine net minder.
4:41 | Skating down the ice on a two-on-one break, Catherine Crawley placed a beautiful pass in front of Natalie Snodgrass who, in stride, dropped the biscuit in the basket.
1:29 | Catherine Crawley jumped in on the scoring action herself, capitalizing on a breakaway that was set up by a Viki Harkness block and assist.
