Icewomen Falling Behind in ECAC's

After a challenging weekend series against ECAC rivals in upstate New York, the Harvard women's hockey team (2-4-1, 1-3-1 ECAC) emerged winless from two very competitive match-ups.

Earlier in the week, Harvard lost to Northeastern (6-3-1, 5-0), 5-0. Northeastern stands atop the ECAC in first place after a 5-4 win over the Ivy League's first place team, Cornell.

Cornell (3-2-1, 1-2-2) handily defeated Harvard, 3-2, despite the Crimson's strong third period come back. With its victory against Harvard, Cornell moved into first place in the Ivy League and a tie for fourth place in the ECAC.

The Crimson's next game was against St. Lawrence (0-3-2, 0-3-2). This exciting thriller was a victory for Harvard until the last second of the third period, when St. Lawrence scored a short-handed goal to even the score. Overtime went scoreless, bringing both teams a tie, 1-1.

Crimson goalie Jen Bowdoin's 100 saves in the three-game week earned her a spot on the Ivy League's Honor Roll.

UNH (10-2, 4-0) beat both Princeton and Yale to move into second place in the ECAC. In shutting out the Tigers, 7-0, and the Bulldogs, 12-0, UNH goalie Dina Solomini became the top netminder in the ECAC, with 1.46 goals against. Fellow Wildcat Carisa Zaban is the top scorer in the ECAC, averaging one goal per game, with 10 goals and 13 assists on the season.

Despite its loss to UNH, Princeton (3-7, 2-2) did have a successful ECAC game in the week. Princeton edged eighth-placed Colby (1-2-1, 1-2-1), 6-4.

The win put the Tigers in fourth place in the ECAC. In the Ivy League, Princeton is in second place behind Cornell.

This was a bad week for Colby in general, as the loss to Princeton was followed by an overtime tie with Yale, 1-1.

The Colby match-up was Yale's only competition for the week. Yale (0-4-1, 0-3-1) stands in last place in the Ivy League and in 11th place in the ECAC.

Dartmouth, which has yet to encounter Ivy League competition this season, suffered a thrashing at the hands of Providence. The Lady Friars handily shut out the Big Green, 5-0, and Providence freshman Laurie Baker earned ECAC Rookie of the Week honors in the process.

The loss for Dartmouth (5-5, 2-1) did not hurt its ECAC standing, and the Big Green is in fourth place in the ECAC, as is Providence. The Friars (5-3, 2-1) lost to the Bears of Brown, 4-3, despite stellar play from Baker.

Brown (4-2-1, 2-0-1) continued its triumphant week with a 7-1 thrashing of Boston College (1-5, 0-3), the last-place team in the ECAC. Brown forward Katie King earned Player of the Week honors in both the ECAC and the Ivy League, scoring the game-winner with 20 seconds left to defeat Providence. Against B.C., King had two goals and two assists to help Brown go undefeated for the week.

The Bears are in fourth place against Ivy League competition but are in third place in the ECAC overall, and they will threaten perennial stronghold Northeastern come ECAC tournament time.
