WORCESTER, Mass. – The Holy Cross women’s ice hockey team fell to Merrimack College, 5-0, Saturday evening at the Hart Center Rink.

HOW IT HAPPENED

1-0 MC (1st, 00:47, EV): Jessica Bonfe got things started for the Warriors before a minute had elapsed.

2-0 MC (1st, 19:17, EV): The Crusaders settled down and played a very solid 18 minutes after the first goal, but the final minute of the period gave them issues just like the first. Kate Bukolska made it 2-0.

3-0 MC (1st, 19:48, PP): Merrimack added another in the first period on a power play thanks to Paige Voight.

4-0 MC (2nd, 11:49, PP): The Crusaders only allowed one goal in the second period and it came at the hands of Katelyn Rae just a little over half way through the frame.

5-0 MC (3rd, 10:51, EV): The scoring was capped halfway through the final period when Merrimack’s Felila Manu found the back of the net.
