Women’s Ice Hockey: Cadets Pounce Panthers


PLYMOUTH, N.H.- The Norwich University Women’s Ice Hockey team continued their roll with a 5-1 victory over Plymouth State Saturday afternoon at Hanaway Rink.

The Cadets got going late in the opening frame when junior Aimee Headland (Nottingham, U.K.) broke the ice on a feed from senior Ann-Frederique Guay (St-Lambert-de-Lauzon, Que.) which was the first of Guay’s four assists. However the score would be tied after the first when the Panthers converted on their lone powerplay courtesy of senior Addie Swanson (Eagle River, Alaska).

Norwich would erupt for three goals in the second period. Headland would score her second of the game and assisted on a goal by senior Molly Flanigan (Lutz, Fla.). Headland’s second was the first goal of two in a 1:19 span, the other coming from Emma O’Neill(Hamburg, N.Y.). Lastly, early in the final frame Mikah Baptiste(Ottawa, On.) would tally her conference leading sixth of the season.

Between the pipes freshman Madison Brunet (Timmins, On.) earned her first career win stopping six of seven shots faced. The Cadets will look to make a statement when they visit Plattsburgh State Tuesday night at 7 PM.
