Winning streak ends at 6 for women’s ice hockey
The Quinnipiac women’s ice hockey team suffered defeat at the hands of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Engineers with a 1-0 loss, ending the Bobcats’ six-game winning streak.
The Engineers’ game-winning goal came early in the third period. RPI forward Kendra Dunlop scored off a pass from Laura Gersten at the 4:24 mark with a shot between the pads of Bobcat goalie Victoria Vigilanti.
The Bobcats’ chance to tie up the game came six minutes later when senior forward Kallie Flor picked up a rebound off a shot by freshman forward Kristen Eklund. Flor’s shot was stopped by goaltender Sonja van der Bliek, leaving the Bobcats scoreless.
Despite keeping pace with the Engineers throughout all three periods, the Bobcats were outshot 25-17. Vigilanti made 24 saves for the Bobcats, while van der Bliek stopped 17 shots.
