STORRS, Conn. - The UConn women's hockey team (5-5-1, 5-5-1) bounced back this weekend with a sweep of the New Hampshire Wildcats that included a 4-0 shutout on Saturday evening at the Freitas Ice Forum.
The two-game sweep is the second of the season for the Huskies (Merrimack) and both series sweeps featured shutouts for Samanatha Carpentier-Yelle and Tia Chan. On Saturday it was Carpentier-Yelle and the UConn defense that stifled the Wildcat's offense with the junior out of Bromont, Quebec making 20 saves.
UConn benefited from a quick start for the second consecutive game with captain Natalie Snodgrass scoring 1:42 into the first period. It was her third goal of the season and 55th of her career.
The Huskies added to the lead with a pair of second period goals. Cam Wong punished a Danielle Fox rebound to make it 2-0 Huskies just 27 seconds into the second frame.
Sophomore Amy Landry capitalized late in the period by scoring for the second-consecutive game after a shot from the point by Emily Reid eventually found its way on the stick of the Beaconsfield, Quebec native.
Savannah Bouzide wrapped up the win with her team-leading sixth goal of the season.
