She dished out two assists, including the secondary helper on the game-winning goal, in Friday’s 4-0 blanking.

Hillary Pattenden – Mercyhurst

College Hockey America Rookie of the Week

 

Thea Imbrogno – Robert Morris 

Freshman, Forward, Etobicoke, Ontario

Imbrogno started off the week by collecting her second consecutive multi-point performance when she collected a goal and an assist during a nine-minute span of the second period to break a 2-2 tie and give RMU a two-goal advantage. It was her fifth multi-point performance of the season and marked the second occasion in which she has produced back-to-back multi-point games against CHA foes. The following afternoon Im- brogno assisted on the goal that began RMU’s comeback and led to a 2-1 victory. She is cur- rently riding a six-game point streak, which ties her for the second-longest mark in program history. Imbrogno has a team-leading 15 points in 13 conference contests and ranks among the top 10 nationally in points per game for rookies.

College Hockey America Honor Roll

College Hockey America Team Notes

MERCYHURST: Mercyhurst (26-5-0, 15-0-0 CHA) extended its winning streak to eight games with a two-game sweep of Syracuse last weekend at Tennity Ice Pavilion. MC defeated the Orange by the scores of 4-0 and 4-2 to extend their lead in the all-time series to 13-0-0. Senior captain Meghan Agosta led all scorers with a goal and four assists. Her goal on Saturday marked her 150th career at Mercyhurst and tied her with former Harvard forward Nicole Corriero for most goals in NCAA women’s hockey history. Junior Jess Jones tallied three goals in the series, two of which came on Saturday...Senior assistant captain Jesse Scanzano scored twice in Friday’s win to mark her sixth multi-goal game of the season. Junior Hillary Pattenden (24-5-0) recorded both wins and notched her sixth shutout of the season. Mercyhurst now has seven 10-plus goal scorers this season, the most since the 2008-09 team that reached the national championship game. The Lakers won’t return to action until Friday, Feb. 25 when they host Robert Morris for senior night at the Mercyhurst Ice Center. The Lakers took all three contests against the Colonials this season by a combined score of 20-7. Overall, they lead the all-time series 26-0-0.

NIAGARA: The Niagara Purple Eagles will host the Wayne State Warriors in two-game set starting Friday in their final home games of the season. Niagara, who was idle last week, sits in second place in conference with a 6-4-2 record behind fifth-ranked Mercyhurst and ahead of Syracuse. The Purple Eagles swept the Warriors in early January for their first road sweep of Wayne State since Feb. 2005.

ROBERT MORRIS: Robert Morris took an early lead and never trailed, but the Colonials were forced to settle for a 4-4 tie with Wayne State after a late Warrior rally Friday. The Colonials used brilliant of- fensive play on special teams throughout the contest as RMU went 3-for-6 on the power play and also registered its first shorthanded goal of the season. Senior assistant captain Sara O’Malley’s goal made her the first player in RMU history to hit the 90-point plateau. It also marked the first time in program history that Robert Morris had at least 10 players collect a point in a game against a current CHA opponent. Sopho- more Courtney Langston’s first point of the season doubled as her first-career game-winning score as RMU came back from an early deficit to take down the Warriors, 2-1, Saturday. The Colonials turned a deficit into a lead within a 20-second span in the second period as O’Malley got the comeback started with her 50th career goal, becoming the first player in RMU history to hit that plateau. The RMU penalty-kill unit was particularly impressive as it held the Warriors scoreless on 10 power-play chances. It marked the most power plays killed off by the Colonials without con- ceding a power-play goal since Robert Morris’ inaugural season, a span of 186 games. In 70 percent of the games in which it has earned a point this season, Robert Morris has come from behind to do so. RMU will return to Pittsburgh for its final home games of the season this weekend as the Colonials play host to Syracuse in a crucial two-game set with CHA seeding on the line.

SYRACUSE: The Syracuse University women’s ice hockey team was swept by No. 5 Mercyhurst last weekend, 4-0 and 4-2 at Tennity Ice Pavilion. The Orange is now 11-15-4 overall and 5-6-1 in CHA play. Friday’s game marked the second time the Lakers have shutout the Orange this season. Mercyhurst leads the all-time series 14-0 and has outscored Syracuse 66-18 in 14 meetings between the two teams. Freshman goaltender Kallie Billadeau made 40 saves each game for a total of 80 saves in the series. In game two, sophomore Holly Carrie-Mattimoe and freshman Margot Scharfe each recorded a goal and an assist. The Orange will take on Robert Morris on Feb. 18 and 19. SU will return home on Feb. 25 and 26 for its final regular-season series against Niagara before hosting the 2011 CHA Tournament on Match 3-5.

WAYNE STATE: Wayne State played its final home series of the year last weekend, skating to a 4-4 tie with Robert Morris on Friday before losing the finale, 2-1. Julie Ingratta scored two goals in the final 7:21 of regulation Friday, including an extra-attacker goal with 38 seconds left in the third period. The goals came after WSU erased a pair of one-goal deficits before the Colonials scored two power-play goals in the second period to take a 4-2 lead. On Saturday, the Colonials scored two goals in a 20-second span in the second period, erasing a 1-0 WSU lead established early in the game by Lauren Lovold, who earned her first collegiate point. Delayne Brian made 20 saves Saturday and 47 on the weekend, bringing her total to 889 for the year, 47 shy of Anna VanderMarliere’s single-season school record. Brian did pass VanderMarliere, however, for the single-season mark in minutes played (1676:05). The Warriors will close out the regular season this weekend at Niagara, and will have a weekend off leading into the CHA Tournament.
