Bowlby Has Three Points in Victory Over Maine

Dartmouth women's hockey scored three power-play goals and one shorthanded tally in the 5-2 victory over Maine at Thompson Arena on Saturday afternoon.
 
Six players had one point, a pair of players had two and freshman CC Bowlby led the lot with her first three-point performance (1-2-3). Classmate Catherine Trevors and senior Christina Rombaut both had a goal and an assist for two points.
 
"I'm so proud of our girls today," head coach Laura Schuler said. "They really kept it simple and adhered to the game plan, and that helped us generate the offense and defense needed to be successful."
 
The Big Green looked good in the first period, but it was Maine (7-7-2) who got on the board first at 3:04. Dartmouth (3-6-1) wasted little time answering though, and Costa's second tally of the year 26 seconds later evened things up at a goal apiece. The teams spent the next 10 minutes tied until the Black Bears scored another at 13:40 to take the lead once again.
 
The Green controlled the action in the second, outshooting the visitors, 12-7 and winning 18 of 28 faceoffs, but were still unable to get past goalie Carly Jackson. Dartmouth's patience paid off and, with 14 seconds remaining on the power play, Brekke scored at 14:04 to tie the score once again. Bowlby's shorthanded marker less than three minutes later gave the Big Green their first lead of the weekend.
 
The game still could have gone either way at the start of the third. Maine had some quality shots but was not able to get past the Dartmouth defense. Power play goals by Rombaut at 10:30 and Trevors at 18:09 put the game out of reach.
 
Dartmouth had a 26-24 shot advantage and went 3-for-5 on the power play, while Maine missed out on all six of its opportunities. In net, freshman Hannah Humphreys made 22 saves for the win.
 
The Big Green will be on the road for the last time in 2019 next weekend, heading out to face Ivy League rivals Brown and Yale.
