Tuesday, December 04, 2018

Hanover — Nicole Dunbar and Taylor Wenczkowski scored second-period goals as New Hampshire defeated the Dartmouth College women’s hockey team, 2-0, on Tuesday night at Thompson Arena.

Neither team was able to find the back of the net in the opening period. The Big Green had a number of good scoring chances and took a 13-9 shot advantage into the second.

UNH broke the scoreless tie at 1:39 of the second on Dunbar’s goal four seconds into the power play. Wenczkowski scored at 7:54 on a delayed penalty, giving the visitors a 2-0 advantage.

The Green led in shots throughout most of the third and had a few quality attempts, but Wildcats goalie Kyra Smith stood her ground and sent each one away. Dartmouth freshman Chloe Puddifant had a nice breakaway chance halfway through the period, while senior Alyssa Baker tried her luck with a backhanded shot, but both just missed the mark.

Dartmouth had a slight advantage in shots (31-29). Big Green goalie Christine Honor had 27 saves and a .931 save percentage. Dartmouth will have a few weeks away from the ice, returning on Dec. 30 at UConn.
