Women's hockey cruises to 3-0 win over Morrisville
The Hamilton College women’s hockey team posted its second shutout of the season Tuesday, blanking visiting Morrisville State 3-0 in a non-league game at Russell Sage Rink. The Continentals’ defensive effort shut down the nation’s seventh-highest scoring team, holding the Mustangs (5-3-2 overall) to 14 shots.
Hannah Bartlett ’16 scored twice in the third period and Sam Walther ’18 posted her fifth career shutout for Hamilton (2-2-0).
Bartlett recorded the first two-goal game of her career, collecting a pair of insurance goals in the final 16 minutes. She stole a clearing pass at the blue line early in the third period and fired a high shot past Morrisville goaltender Renee Schwartz. Seven minutes later she netted her third goal of the season. Katie Parkman ’17 and Jenna Jewell ’19 assisted on the goal. Jewell’s assist was her first collegiate point.
Parkman scored Hamilton’s first goal – she’s had a hand in four of Hamilton’s six goals this season – after a scramble in front of the net during a power-play opportunity. Schmaltz stopped shots by Naomi Woolfenden ’16 and Teal Gosselin '17 before Parkman received a pass from Taegan Blackwell ’19 and converted it for the game’s first goal at 8:20 of the first period.
Schwartz stopped 27 shots and Walther finished with 14 saves. Walther’s shutout was the fifth of her career in just 23 starts.
The Continentals host a weekend series with NESCAC opponent Colby this weekend, starting with a 7 p.m. game Friday.
