Norwich women’s hockey dominates Plymouth St.


Cadets shut out Panthers for seventh-straight win

The shutout streak moved to three games for the Cadets as they took down Plymouth St. in Kreitzberg Arena on Saturday.

Norwich blanked the Panthers 6-0 as the team has outscored its opponents 21-0 in that span. NU also made it seven wins in a row, with a 44-4 scoring advantage in the winning stretch.

Senior Amanda Conway (Methuen, Mass./ Boston Shamrocks (JWHL)) netted the first goal of the contest in the first period. She finished with a two-goal night and now sits just one goal away from tying Julie Fortier ’12 for the career goal record (93).

Captain Sophie McGovern (Hermantown, Minn./ Hermantown-Proctor) and freshman forward Ingrid Holstad-Berge (Stavanger, Norway/ Ontario Hockey Academy) both led the way with a game-high three points each.

Norwich goalie Alexa Berg (West Fargo, N.D./ Gentry) continued a strong sophomore campaign between the pipes and made 21 saves in the shutout.

The Cadets improved to 7-1 this season, and are back in action to play in-state foe Castleton on Wednesday, December 4 at 7 p.m. in Kreitzberg Arena.
