College Hockey America Weekly Recap: September 29th, 2014

Friday, Sept. 26

Wisconsin 5, Lindenwood 1 Lindenwood, rather infamously, opened its NCAA Division I era with a trip to Madison to take on the star-studded Badgers, games that ended 11-0 and 13-0. Fortunately, they’ve gotten a bit more competitive since, with Shara Jasper’s first-period goal and Nicole Hensley’s 49 saves keeping the Lions within two until the late going… | Box Score | Recap

Penn State 5, Western Ontario 2 (Exhib.) A talented and important freshman class shined for the Nittany Lions in the program’s first exhibition game at the NCAA Division I level. Defenseman Bella Sutton stepped to the fore among that group with a pair of goals and an assist ahead of PSU’s grinder of a regular opener against Minnesota next week. | Box Score | Recap

Bemidji State 5, Robert Morris 2 The Colonials missed a chance to make an early positive statement in its quest for an NCAA Tournament bid, instead making a negative one in getting swept at home by Bemidji State, a member of the WCHA’s lower classes. Erin Staniewski and Rebecca Vint scored for RMU, but the Beavers victimized a young Colonials D, posting 35 shots and making goalie Jessica Dodds look human. | Box Score | Recap

Saturday, Sept. 27

Wisconsin 6, Lindenwood 0 …at the same time, things really haven’t changed that much over the last three years. LU was outshot 102-29 over the two contests, and the Badgers once again overpowered the Lions late in this one, after only accumulating a 1-0 lead halfway through. | Box Score | Recap

Bemidji State 3, Robert Morris 1 Bobby Mo did a little better in the second game of the series, riding a Staniewski goal to an advantage for most of the game. Jenessa Philipczyk and Alexis Joyce flipped the result in an 11-minute span bridging the second and third periods though, and Stephanie Anderson grabbed a late empty-netter. | Box Score | Recap

Mercyhurst 7, Pursuit of Excellence 0 (Exhib.) Mike Sisti’s gang was presented with few issues in a dominating exhibition win. Jenna Dingeldein led the way with a hat trick, while Kirsten Miller had a goal and two helpers. Things ramp up a bit for the Lakers next weekend when Providence comes to town for their regular season opener. | Box Score | Recap
