BURLINGTON, Vt. - An offensive outburst in the second period powered third-ranked Northeastern (21-3-1, 18-2-0 HEAW) over Vermont (9-12-6, 6-10-4 HEAW) on Saturday at Gutterson Fieldhouse.


"There's not much to say about a game like this," head coach Jim Plumer said. "We didn't defend our net and that is never a recipe for success. We have to put this behind us and move forward."


- The Huskies struck twice in the opening seven minutes on goals from Katy Knoll and Chloe Aurard. Knoll's goal came 36 seconds into the game with a backhander over the shoulder of Blanka Škodová (7 saves).

- Val Caldwell got the Catamounts on the board with her seventh goal of the season late in the first period. The junior fired a high shot from the right circle that fooled Aerin Frankel (21 saves) with 5:01 left in the opening frame. Maude Poulin-Labelle was credited with the lone assist on the goal.

- Northeastern netted three quick goals to start the second period. Lauren MacInnis started the scoring 1:08 into the frame and Matti Hartman followed it up with a power-play goal that beat Natalie Ferenc (9 saves) 2:59 later. Aurard added a power-play goal for her second marker of the game.

- Theresa Schafzahl registered her ninth goal of the season 6:01 into the middle frame. Kristina Shanahan sent the sophomore on the rush before the sophomore fired a shot below the blocker of Frankel. Ali O'Leary had the secondary assist.

- NU added three more goals before time expired in the second period. Jess Schryver found the back of the net before the midway point of the game and Aurard registered a hat trick with 8:21 left in the frame. Katie Cipra added a goal before the period ended.

- In the third period, Alina Mueller and Peyton Anderson each netted a goal on Sierra Natzke (3 saves).


The Catamounts visit Boston University for a one-game conference matchup on Friday (Jan. 31). Puck drop at Walter Brown Arena is slated for 7 p.m. and will be broadcasted on NESNplus.
