Women Earn Two

The Clarkson Women's Team faced a tough pair of teams from the Tri-State region at Cheel this past weekend, and came away with two points and a heartbreaking loss. On Friday, the Knights broke out to a two goal lead in the first and never looked back as they defeated Quinnipiac 3-0. Ashley Shaidle tallied two goals, and Amanda Dittmer added an insurance marker in the third to seal the deal. Kira Hurley recorded her nation-leading ninth shutout of the season, stopping all nineteen shots that she faced.

On Saturday, despite an outstanding effort by Clarkson netminder Kira Hurley, Clarkson fell to Princeton 1-0 in OT. Hurley stopped 40 shots, but it was the 41st with a minute and change left to go that did the Knights in. Princeton, the eighth ranked team in the country took both league games against Clarkson this season.

After last weekend the Knights currently sits in a tie for 3rd place with Princeton just two points behind the league leader St. Lawrence with six games left to go in the regular season. They'll face Cornell and Colgate on the road next weekend.

Due to Blogger being glitchy, my post over the weekend was eaten by the Blogger Monster. Sorry bout that. I'll make it up to you. I promise.

Do the women have a Hobey Baker/MVP/whatever voting thing I can stuff some votes into for Clarkson?
