Women's Hockey - at RIT (9/10 Oct)

Non-conference play continued for the Engineers this weekend with a short jaunt over to Rochester to take on RIT. RPI fared well against the Tigers, picking up a 6-2 win Friday night followed by a 3-1 victory Saturday afternoon.

Selander

Mari Mankey scored two goals, nine Engineers recorded points, and freshman Lovisa Selander stopped 15 of 17 shots as RPI defeated RIT on Friday night.

Mankey's goals included the eventual game-winner which put RPI up 3-0 in the first period, as well as the last goal of the game late in the second which made it 6-2 on the power play.

Katie Rooney got things going for RPI just 1:05 in, picking up Laura Horwood's rebound and putting it past Brooke Stoddart for a 1-0 lead.

Aly Tremblay doubled the RPI lead with a goal off a 3-on-1 at 9:24, and Mankey's first goal followed about three minutes later.

RIT got on the board at 13:50 when Cassie Clayton scored on a one-timer, but Shayna Tomlinson gave RPI their three-goal cushion back with 11 seconds left in a busy first period.

The Tigers again drew within two with a Carly Payerl goal early in the third, but Laura Horwood made it 5-2 before Mankey scored her second of the night late in the middle frame to leave the score at 6-2, where it remained through the third period.

Till

After combining for eight goals on Friday, RPI and RIT scaled things back a little on Saturday, only racking up four goals as the Engineers beat the Tigers 3-1.

Alexa Gruschow scored twice for the Engineers, while Katie Rooney tacked on a goal and Sarah Till finished with 20 saves.

RIT jumped out to an early lead off a Carly Payerl power play goal at 7:15 of the first, but Rooney scored just 42 seconds later off an RIT turnover to tie it up.

Gruschow scored her first goal 3:44 into the second period, picking up a Jenn Godin rebound and tucking it behind goalie Jetta Rackleff. She gave the Engineers an insurance goal on the power play in the third period to make it 3-1 which held up as the final score despite nearly two minutes spent by RIT with the extra attacker.

The Engineers close out their early season non-conference play next weekend as they host Robert Morris, then will start off ECAC play on the road at Cornell and Colgate.
