Box Score

CANTON, N.Y. (2/7/14) - Senior defender Rose Alleva played the hero as she scored the game-winning goal in the final minute as the Prineton women's hockey team defeated St. Lawrence 2-1.

Princeton (12-9-3, 8-7-2) was able to withstand a strong showing by St. Lawrence (9-16-3, 8-6-3) in the first period, as the teams traded goals despite the Saints 15-6 edge in shots. Netminder Kimberly Newell was able to let her team settle down as she made 15 saves in the first period as the Tigers came out renewed for the remaining 40 minutes and were able to claim victory.

Senior Denna Laing put the Tigers on the board first at 11:31. Princeton won a face off in its own zone with Laing collecting the puck and sending it up along the right boards to Kelsey Koelzer. Koelzer found Brianna Leahy in the neutral zone and she sliced her two defenders and left a drop pass for Laing who ripped a shot glove side on goaltender Carmen MacDonald.

Six minutes later Rylee Smith evened the game with a power-play goal as Alex Moore provided a screen on Newell.

A scoreless second period kept Newell on her toes as Princeton picked up eight penalty minutes to St. Lawrence's four.

She made a big save right before Princeton got the puck and scored in the final minute, as the Saints had a fastbreak out of the zone. Leahy collected the rebounded puck in the slot and had a step on the rest of the skaters as she made her way down the ice and hit her trailer, Alleva, who banged in the goal with 38 seconds remaining.

MacDonald made 15 saves for St. Lawrence who went 1 for 6 on the power play.

Newell finished the night with 28 stops, earning her 10th win of the season.

Princeton remains in sixth place in the ECAC Hockey standings but is now just one point behind fifth-place St. Lawrence and three away from fourth-place Quinnipiac.

Princeton faces No. 3 Clarkson tomorrow at 4 p.m. Clarkson and Quinnipiac played to a 3-3 draw this evening across town.
