Local Roundup: Big Green Finds the Power in Win Over UVM



Wednesday, November 07, 2018

Hanover — If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

Perseverance on the power play led to the game-winning goal — and the first-power play goal of the season — for the Dartmouth College women’s hockey team in a 3-1 win over Vermont on Tuesday night at Thompson Arena.

Dartmouth’s Tess Bracken opened the scoring. Bracken intercepted the puck and took off on a breakaway and beat Catamounts goaltender Blanka Skodova with a deke for a backhanded goal with 8:37 left in the opening period.

With 10:59 left in the second period, UVM surged on its first power play of the night. Sammy Kolowrat fired from the blue line with a bouncer through the Big Green defense, and the puck was deflected in by the Catamounts’ Theresa Schafzahl to tie the game.

Bracken broke the tie on the power play with a blast from the blue line 2:49 into the second period. The goal was Big Green’s first power-play strike out of 23 attempts this season. Christina Rombaut and Lotti Odnoga had the assists.

Two minutes later, the Green’s Sara McClanahan scored after crashing the net off an assist from Lotti Odnoga. Dartmouth outshot Vermont, 26-25.

The Big Green (2-4-0) hosts RIT on Friday.
