Dutchwomen get swept away by Ivy League competition


By Ben Gurlitz

Union’s women’s hockey team was beaten twice this past weekend, making it six losses on the trot.

The Dutchwomen opened the weekend with a 5-0 loss to the Crimson of Harvard on Friday before losing 4-1 to Dartmouth the following afternoon, with junior Kelly Alyea scoring the solitary Dutchwomen goal of the weekend.

The game remained tied for the next nine minutes, although Dartmouth controlled the play.  Sally Komarak would eventually break the deadlock, with Kelly Trunzo, who has a phenomenal record against Union, picking up the assist.

Kelly Foley scored with two minutes remaining to round off the second Union second-period collapse of the weekend. The Big Green outshot the Dutchwomen 25-3 in this decisive period.

Eight minutes into the third period, Jenna Hobeika scored for Dartmouth and finally put the game to bed.

Junior goaltender Kate Gallagher put in a solid performance, making 41 saves in the game, which was her third 40+ save performance of the season. She made a total of 52 saves on the weekend.

It’s tough to take away any positives from this weekend where the Dutchwomen were out shot 95-25 in two games and outscored 9-1.

Next weekend, they are home to fellow strugglers Colgate before taking on conference leaders Cornell.
