  • RMU Women's Ice Hockey Update by Marissa Dubaich

The Robert Morris University women's ice hockey team opened their 2012-2013 regular-season this past weekend at the Island Sports Center at Neville Island. The Colonials defeated Yale on Friday, October 19th (2-0) and won their third consecutive home opener. Saturday, October 20th, was a different story for the Lady Colonials. They were defeated by the Princeton Tigers (3-6).

Robert Morris and Princeton had a back and forth battle in the first and second period until the Tigers dominated the rest of the game in the third period. It was a struggle for the Colonials to take the lead again because they could not make their shots even though the Colonials had a total of 36 shots-on-goal and the Tigers had a total of 20 shots-on-goal. The goaltender for Robert Morris, Kristen DiCiocco, played all three periods except when second-string goaltender, Delayne Brian stepped in with 11:05 minutes left in regulation. Unfortunately, Delayne let one goal in but had two saves against the Tigers. It was Delayne Brain's first appearance as a Colonial, who is a transfer student.

Some of the Robert Morris ice hockey team players had their first goal of the regular-season. A sophomore forward, Rebecca Vint had her first goal and took their first lead in the first period. Also, Vint was in the top three stars of Saturday night's game. Katelyn Scott, a sophomore forward had her first goal of the season in the first period at 6:00. Kristen Richards, a junior forward, had the last RMU goal in the third period at 13:37.

Next weekend, the Colonials will be traveling to Boston, Massachusetts to take on Northeastern on Friday and #3 Boston University on Saturday. Robert Morris will not be back home until Friday, December 8 after they play ten straight road games.
