STORRS, Conn. - The UConn women's hockey team lost 2-0 to the University of Vermont on Friday evening from the Freitas Ice Forum.
The Huskies returned to action for the first time since December 19 against Merrimack and Sam Carpentier-Yelle was superb in goal for the Huskies.
The Bromont, Quebec native made 13 saves in the first period and finished the game with 26 total including a couple highlight reel denials that kept UConn in the game.
UConn was able to create opportunities but were unable to put the puck past Jessie McPherson, who was equaling as good, in net for the Catamounts.
Vermont got on the board in the second on a power play goal from Maude Poulin-Labelle.
The Huskies had chances to equalize with Natalie Snodgrass drilling a shot off the post on a one-timer attempt and mutliple chances out in front of the net that McPherson was able to gobble up.
The loss snaps a three-game win streak for the Huskies and the team will look to start a new streak when they return to the ice tomorrow at 3 p.m against the same Catamounts.
