Box Score

PRINCETON, N.J. (11/17/12) - No. 3 Clarkson scored at 1:33 in overtime to defeat the Princeton women's hockey team 2-1 on Saturday, Nov. 17 at Hobey Baker Rink.

The Tigers looked good and kept pace the Golden Knights throughout the game.

The Knights struck first however, with less than two minutes left in the first period. Junior Carly Mercer scored the first goal of the game, assisted by junior Brittany Styner.

Princeton stayed on top of the Green & Gold despite having to kill off two penalties in the second period. With eight shots on netminder Erica Howe, it was evident that the Tigers had no decrease in their momentum.

With less than nine minutes left to go in the third, senior Kelly Cooke intercepted the puck in the neutral zone and skated in on Howe but was tripped by a defender resulting in a penalty shot. Cooke skated up to Howe once more and fired the puck over her shoulder into the top right corner to tie the game. Princeton goalie Kimberly Newell stayed strong and put together seven saves before the third period came to an end.

As the overtime session started the Princeton defense did a great job of keeping the puck out of the zone. A misstep on a line change didn't give the Tigers a full defense and Clarkson capitalized as Mercer fed junior Jamie Lee Rattray for the overtime goal at 1:33.

Howe finished the game with 21 saves as her team improves to 6-0 in the ECAC and 12-2 overall.

Newell stopped 29 for the Tigers, who fall to 3-5-2 overall and 1-5-2 in league play.

The Tigers play a pair of non-conference games with Ohio State next weekend at Hobey Baker Rink.
