CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – In its second contest of the year against a top-five opponent, No. 8/8 Harvard women's hockey shut out No. 4/4 Northeastern, 3-0. The win was Harvard's seventh in a row and third shutout in the past four outings.
Emerance Maschmeyer earned her second-straight shutout, making 31 saves to pick up the victory. Sydney Daniels tallied the game-winning goal in spectacular fashion in the first period, and Grace Zarzecki and Jessica Harvey found the back of the net to lead the Crimson to the win.
Daniels put the Crimson on the board at 18:09 in the first period when she sniped a shot over the goaltender's shoulder into the top-right corner. Miye D'Oench kicked off the play with a shot that deflected to the puck of Haley Mullins, who found Daniels for her fourth score of the year. Mullins and D'Oench extended their point streaks to five and four games on the play, respectively.
On the power play in the second period, Zarzecki potted her fourth goal of the season with a redirected shot past the goaltender. Following a faceoff, Lexie Laing threw the puck to Abbey Frazer at the point, who fired it towards Zarzecki for the tip home. The freshman found the back of the net for the second-straight game on the play.
Harvey extended Harvard's lead to 3-0, scoring for the third-straight game after finding the back of the mesh with 4:43 elapsed in the third. D'Oench slid a pass across the ice to Kaitlin Tse for a one-timer that was saved by the Northeastern netminder. In an opportune position for a follow-up attempt, Harvey capitalized for the goal.
Harvard hits the road for a pair of contests at Minnesota-Duluth on Thursday, Nov. 24 and Friday, Nov. 25. The Friday contest will be televised locally in Minnesota on My9 TV.
