SHELTON, Conn. – Fifteen different skaters recorded points for the Saint Anselm College women's ice hockey team, led by two goals and two assists by Ashley Moran, as the Hawks cruised to a 10-0 victory over Post University on Friday evening at the Sports Center of Connecticut.
Moran matched her career high of four points, Megan Klaus had four assists, Taylor Ham scored her first two collegiate goals and Samantha Boyer recorded a career-high three points on a goal and two assists for Saint Anselm (6-0-0, 5-0-0 NEWHA). The win in the first-ever meeting with Post (1-5-1, 0-5-0 NEWHA) extended the Hawks' best start to a season since 2007-08 and stretched the team's unbeaten streak to 20-straight games dating back to Jan. 11, 2017.
Kaitlyn Spillane also recorded a multi-point night, finishing with a goal and an assist, and Amanda Conger had two assists for the Hawks. Maddie Scavotto turned aside all 13 shots she faced to pick up the victory and improve to 4-0-0, as the Hawks outshot the Eagles 71-13. Danaee St.-German made 61 saves for the Eagles in the loss.
Jackie Guy scored the game's first goal midway through the opening period with her second of the year at 10:12. Less than five minutes later, Spillane scored the first of Saint Anselm's four power-play goals in the game after being set up by Kaley Campbell and Klaus. Campbell's assist extended the sophomore's point streak to six games to start the season.
Leading 2-0 after one, the Hawks scored four times over each of the final two periods to record the team's most goals in a game since a 14-0 victory over Nichols on Nov. 5, 2016. Caley Mueller, Moran, Boyer and Madison Sprague all scored in the second period, with Moran, Boyer and Sprague's goals coming in the space of less than five minutes late in the period.
Katy Meehan scored for the fourth time this season just 46 seconds into the third to start the four-goal final period. Ham provided the next two goals at 3:26 and 16:39, respectively, as classmate Gabby Monaco earned her first-career point by setting up Ham's second. Moran capped the scoring from Boyer at 18:06 as the Hawks cashed in on the power play for the fourth time in four chances.
The two teams conclude their weekend series with a 3:45 p.m. start at the Sports Center of Connecticut on Saturday, Nov. 11.
