Ashleigh Corvi stopped all 37 shots she faced to lead Wesleyan University to a 4-0 win over Hamilton College in a NESCAC game at Wesleyan's Spurrier-Snyder Rink on Feb. 4.
It was the first career shutout for Corvi, and the 14th time this season she tallied at least 30 saves. The win snaps a 13-game losing streak for the Cardinals, who defeated Hamilton for the first time since Dec. 3, 2005.
Glenn Hartman-Mattson scored two goals, Jordan Schildhaus posted one goal and two assists, and Cara Janowski scored the other goal. Hannah Jellinek picked up two assists, and Julia Mullhern and Kathleen Van Hise added one apiece.
Becca Hazlett '13 stopped 15 shots in 58 minutes, 21 seconds in goal for the Continentals. Hazlett was pulled for an extra skater during a Hamilton power play late in the third period.
After a scoreless first period, Jankowski put Wesleyan on the board with a power-play goal at 14:45 of the second. Jellinek sent a pass from the right circle to Jankowski outside the left circle, and Jankowski flipped the puck up and over Hazlett for her second goal.
The Cardinals (3-17-0 overall, 2-10 NESCAC) stretched their lead to two goals just 52 seconds later. Hartman-Mattson took a pass at the right post and slid the puck into the net for her fourth goal of the season. Wesleyan led 2-0 at the second intermission.
Hartman-Mattson added an insurance goal at 4:28 of the third after taking a pass from behind the net and poking the puck past Hazlett. Schildhaus closed the scoring on an empty-net goal with 31 seconds to play.
Hamilton (8-11-0, 5-7) held a 37-19 shot advantage, but was 0-for-7 on the power play. Wesleyan went 1-for-2 with the extra skater.
Hamilton hosts Utica College for a non-conference game on Tuesday, Feb. 7, at 7 p.m.
