A day after suffering a 7-0 defeat at No. 5 Colgate, the Dartmouth College women’s hockey team took down No. 10 Cornell, 5-1, in Ithaca, N.Y. on Saturday.

The Big Green held the Raiders scoreless for a period Friday before Colgate exploded for three goals in the second and four more in the third. Sophomore Maggie Emerson made 28 saves, allowing five goals, and freshman Elle Sullivan allowed two goals and made seven saves.

Saturday’s contest was also scoreless after 20 minutes of action, but this time Dartmouth had the explosive second period. Junior Jenna Donohue opened the scoring, assisted by sophomore Laura Fuoco. Freshman Maura Fiorenza then scored her first collegiate goal, with freshman Izee Powell and Fuoco assisting. Fuoco tallied herself later in the period on assists from juniors Tiffany Hill and Annie King.

The Big Red got on the board seven minutes into the third period, but CC Bowlby answered 40 seconds later, with Donohue and senior Sydney Herrington assisting. Bowlby’s second goal of the day, assisted by freshman Cally Dixon and sophomore Lauren Messier, accounted for the final margin. Sullivan, making just her fourth start of the season, made 31 saves.

The Big Green (7-16, 3-13 ECAC Hockey) return to Thompson Arena to face Quinnipiac on Friday and Princeton on Saturday.

HANOVER — The Big Green nearly overcame a three-goal deficit in Friday night’s 3-2 home loss to No. 11 Cornell, then tied Saturday night’s game against Colgate with just over a minute left in the third period before losing 4-3 in overtime.

Two power play goals helped the Big Red jump out to a 3-0 lead after two periods, and Dartmouth finally got on the board 13 minutes into the third when senior Tanner Palocsik set up Sean Chisholm. Freshman Alex Krause made it a one-goal game with 1:26 remaining, assisted by sophomore John Fusco and junior Joey Musa, but  it was too little, too late.

The following night, the Big Green struck first early in the second period on a goal by Palocsik, assisted by freshman Luke Haymes. The Raiders evened the score 34 seconds later, but Dartmouth retook the lead before the middle stanza was over when freshman Cam MacDonald and Palocsik assisted senior Jack Cameron’s goal.
