MANCHESTER, N.H. – The Wesleyan women's hockey team fell to Saint Anselm 1-0 on Saturday during the first meeting between the two teams. With the loss, the Cardinals fall to 3-4-0, while the Hawks improve to 11-1-1.

HOW IT HAPPENED:

  • After a scoreless first period, Wesleyan had a great opportunity to take a one-goal lead when Cali Stevens was awarded a penalty shot at the 12:51 mark. Stevens looked to tuck the puck inside the right pipe, but her chance was thwarted by Hawk goaltender Maddie Scavotto.
  • Saint Anselm scored the lone-goal just one minute later when Jayden Young snuck the puck inside the far post for the 1-0 edge.
  • The Hawks had a flurry of opportunities in the final two minutes of the second frame, but the Cardinal defense clamped down, keeping them within striking distance.
  • Wesleyan looked for the equalizer during a power-play beginning at the 14:27 mark of the third, but shots by Grace Keogh and Ally Detre were denied by Scavotto.
  • The Cardinals had a final opportunity to knot the game with 2:07 remaining, but Sophia Marra's shot chance was thwarted by goaltender Scavotto, as Saint Anselm was able to hang on for the win.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:

  • Allegra Grant kept the Cardinals within striking distance, making 43 saves during the contest, while Scavotto made nine saves to pick up the win in net for the Hawks.
