Box Score

HANOVER, N.H. (2/3/12) - Junior Corey Stearns scored the game-winning goal in the second period to give the Princeton women's hockey team a 2-1 win over No. 10 Dartmouth on Friday, Feb. 3 at Thompson Arena.

The Tigers took a 2-0 lead before Dartmouth got on the scoreboard midway through the second period. All three goals came on the power play.

Junior Kelly Cooke gave Princeton a 1-0 lead with help from sophomore Gabie Figueroa and freshman Brianne Mahoney with 1:24 left in the first period. Mahoney had the puck in front of the Dartmouth bench and sent a cross-ice pass to Figueroa who fired a shot on goal. Cooke redirected the shot putting the puck past two defenders and netminer Lindsay Holdcroft.

Stearns scored what would be the game-winning goal with help from senior Charissa Stadnyk at 9:51 of the second period. A shot by Stadnyk deflected off of a Big Green defender and Stearns was in the right place to collect it and send it past Holdcroft.

Camille Dumais put the home team on the board at 12:29, scoring on Princeton's first penalty of the game. Sasha Nanji and Moira Scanlon got credited with the assists.

Dartmouth outshot Princeton 42-19 in the game with senior goaltender Rachel Weber standing strong between the pipes. Weber finished the game with 41 saves, the second most stops she has made this season. She stopped two in the final 43 seconds as the Big Green tried to find the equalizer skating 6x5. Her biggest stop of the night came with 14 minutes to play in the third when she made a sliding save on a 2x1 rush between Ali Winkel and Sally Komarek

Holdcroft stopped 17 in goal for the Big Green.

Princeton improves to 10-10-4 overall and 8-7-2 in ECAC Hockey to move into seventh place in the league standings. Dartmouth is 11-6-2 on the season and 10-5-2 in the league.

The Tigers will face No. 8 Harvard tomorrow, Feb. 4 at 4 p.m. Harvard defeated Quinnipiac 4-2 this evening.
