WORCESTER, Mass. – The Holy Cross women’s hockey team dropped a nail-biter, 2-1, to Vermont Sunday afternoon at the Hart Center.

Down 2-0 with five minutes to play in the third period, the Crusaders cut the lead in half when Danielle Doherty scored her first goal of the season on a 5-on-3 opportunity. Despite applying pressure for the remainder of the period, Holy Cross could not add a second to tie things up.

Shots were even at 23 and Jada Brenon made 21 saves on the day for the Crusaders.

HOW IT HAPPENED:

1-0 UVM (1st, 6:54, PP): Vermont struck first thanks to Alyssa Gorecki who got some help from Maude Poulin-Labelle.

2-0 UVM (1st, 18:33, EV): The Catamounts added a second in the period when Poulin-Labelle had her shot from the point blocked, but quickly got the rebound and fired it home to increase the lead to two.

2-1 HC (3rd, 15:27, PP): Victoria Young’s shot hit the boards behind the goal and ricocheted out to Maeve Reilly. She sent it on to Emma Lange who took a shot of her own on goal that trickled through the crease to a waiting Doherty at the back post. The senior made sure it found the back of the net.

NOTES AND NUMBERS:

  • Doherty's goal was her first of the season and 15th of her career. 
  • This was Peter Van Buskirk's 500th game as the women's hockey coach. 

UP NEXT:

The Crusaders will play a single game next weekend at Boston University on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 3 p.m for the third and final Turnpike Trophy game of the year. In two weeks, Holy Cross will travel to Vermont for a pair of games to finish the season series.
