UC stays hot in ECAC West

Jim McLaughlin, Sports Editor 

After trailing by one goal in the third period of Friday night’s game against Chatham, the Utica College women’s ice hockey put together a come-from-behind victory, which carried over to the next day as the Pioneers earned the sweep.

The Pioneers started off slow as Chatham was able to get on the board first to take the lead with under 13 minutes to go in the first period. UC didn’t allow the first goal to disrupt its rhythm as junior Gabrielle Schnepp tied the game. Schnepp found the back of the net off of the redirected shot from freshman Lauren Patterson. UC headed into the first intermission with the game tied 1-1.

The game was tied halfway through the second period, but junior McKenzie Haskins regained the lead for Chatham to make it 2-1. The Pioneers were not able to score the rest of the second period and went into the third period down by a goal.
