Women's Hockey - Union Home & Home (23/24 Jan)

RPI and Union faced off in their annual home-and-home, and as has tended to happen in recent years, Union played their crosstown rivals tough. The Dutchwomen took a point in Schenectady on Friday as they tied the Engineers 2-2, but RPI picked things up at home on Saturday with a solid 4-2 victory.

RPI had to come from behind twice on Friday night, down 1-0 and 2-1, to force a 2-2 tie against Union in Schenectady.

Alexa Gruschow scored 23 seconds into the second period to recover from the 1-0 deficit, and Laura Horwood picked up a power play tally at 10:14 of the third to even things at two.

Kelly O'Brien had 20 saves on the night. The Engineers only managed to outshoot Union 26-22, with most of that coming in the third period after the Dutchwomen outshot RPI 9-5 in the first and both teams managed six shots in the second.

After squandering a point on Friday night, RPI took the opportunity to at least make it a 3-point weekend as they beat Union 4-2 in Troy, racking up 43 shots in the process.

Laura Horwood and Katie Rooney scored in the first to give RPI a 2-0 lead. Union cut the lead in half before the intermission but Lauren Wash got it back early in the third to make it 3-1.

Gruschow's goal in the third period put RPI up 4-1 and the score almost held up, but Union notched a second goal in the final minute for a 4-2 final.

With Yale only earning two points over Brown on the weekend, RPI made up one point in the race for 8th place. However RPI will be depending on Yale losses coupled with a little good luck to make up ground with just eight games left in the season.
