NEW HAMPSHIRE 4, UNION 2

SCHENECTADY — Rhianna Kurio and Jessica Kaminsky tied up the match with goals in the second period, but New Hampshire pulled away in the third with a pair of goals by Megan Armstrong to give the Wildcats a victory over the Dutchwomen at Messa Rink.

New Hampshire (8-11-4, 4-4-1) opened the game with a strong shot advantage. The Wildcats were able to open the scoring on a two-on-one rush as Arielle O’Neill finished off a pass from Kristina Lavoie to put New Hampshire up, 1-0.

Kurio was able to spark the Union offense after drawing a hooking penalty on Kailey Chappell with five minutes remaining. However, the New Hampshire penalty kill kept Union to just one shot.

The Dutchwomen came out of the first intermission seeking the equalizer as Stefanie Thomson, Ashley Johnston and Elsa Brusestle all had scoring chances but were thwarted by netminder Jenn Gilligan. Kurio managed to level the score as she weaved by the Wildcats defense and beat Gilligan stick-side.

Momentum looked to be in Union’s favor until Bryanne Panchuck received a holding the stick call to give New Hampshire its first power play. The Wildcats wasted no time as Hannah Armstrong put away the loose puck off a deflection by Megan Armstrong to give New Hampshire the lead again.

Just 35 seconds later, Union responded with another equalizer as Kaminsky poked in the rebound after Gilligan could not corral the Courtney Turner shot.

Union found itself in penalty trouble in the third period as Rebecca Babiak and Panchuk went to the box. New Hampshire was able to capitalize again as the 10th best power play unit in Division I took the lead for the third time in the game. Megan Armstrong scored from the high slot as the puck went over netminder Shenae Lundberg’s glove to give New Hampshire its third goal.

Union (7-12-3, 0-7-3) will play its fourth game in a span of seven days as the Dutchwomen will travel to Dartmouth to compete on Friday night at 7.
