Quartet of Women’s Hockey Skaters Compete Internationally in U-22 Series

Team USA topped Canada 2-1 in the three-game series (Elan Kawesch).

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. – While the Harvard hockey season is still a few months away, four women's hockey student athletes battled internationally in the under-22 series between the United States and Canada at the 1980 Herb Brooks Arena. With two Crimson skaters on each side, Team USA claimed a 2-1 series victory.

Sydney Daniels and Lexie Laing represented the United States, with each making critical contributions in game one to help the United States gain a 1-0 early advantage. Daniels and Laing each assisted Dana Trevigno's game-tying goal in the second period of game one before Daniels found the back of the net in the third period to put an exclamation mark on a 4-1 victory.

Emerance Maschmeyer and Karly Heffernan laced up the skates for Canada's U-22 squad, with Maschmeyer serving as the primary goaltender in the series. Maschmeyer ended the three-game set with a 1.20 goals allowed average and a .944 save percentage.
