Dutchwomen Score Three Times in Loss to Brown

SCHENECTADY, NY - Senior forward Emily Erickson, senior forward Alli Devins and first year forward Rachel de Perio all scored in Union College's 4-3 loss to Brown University Saturday afternoon at Messa Rink.

The Bears came out firing as after a scoreless five minutes of play they broke the scoreless tie. Off a a wrap around shot from Bridgit Carey, the puck found the stick of Sam Donovan who slotted it home. Brown would add to their lead just 35 seconds later when a Sena Hanson shot squirted just past Union starting goalie Amelia Murray.

With the Dutchwomen on the powerplay, Brown's Samantha Swanstrom stole the puck at the blue line and headed the other way on the breakaway. She finished the goal at the 10:08 mark of the period to put the Bears up 3-0. The final Brown goal came at the 15:39 mark of the period as Katie Swanstrom found Steph Rempe to make it 4-0 in favor of the visiting Bears

In the second period, the Dutchwomen had three goals disallowed upon further video review by the referees.

Union quickly got on the board in the third period as a Katie Laughlin pass through the crease found the tap of Erickson who tapped it in at the 1:33 mark. Eastyn Yuen was also credited with an assist.

Devins put the Dutchwomen within the two as she collected a rebound off a Arianna Kosakowki shot and beat the Bear goalie at the 13:04 mark. Katelynn Russ got the secondary assist on the play.

With the clock ticking down, Coach Josh Sciba pulled the goalie in favor of an extra attacker. The extra body left de Perio open at the goal mouth as she punched home Union's third of the period with just a second remaining in the game. Devins got the assist on the play.

The Dutchwomen are back on the road next weekend as they travel to Dartmouth College and Harvard University. This will be the first time this season the Union plays either team.
