  • DIII Scoreboard

    Some results from 10/28:

    Exhibition: Plattsburgh 2 - St. Michaels 1. The Cardinals had control of things for most of the game and had a 2-0 lead on goals from transfer Julia Masotta and freshman Emma McLean in the third when Purple Knights forward Meghan Kennard split the defenders and scored on the break against the Cardinal goalie Nease. St. Michaels had momentum but a player's overskating the puck and a penalty while defending the ensuing rush the other way was enough to throw the Purple Knights from their horses. A lot of new looks for the Cardinals lines and defensive pairs. All 4 centers were playing their first game as Cardinals with returning centers Calhoun scratched and Schmelzer (who was a center prior to her shift to the blue line last season) played at RW. Rematch tomorrow.

    Alvernia 11 - Hilbert 1 - Hilbert loses badly in their debut game. The box score indicates they had six forwards and three defenders, playing all six forwards but only 3 of 4 defenders on their listed roster. Alvernia only had one hat trick with RW Olivia Gilida scoring three. The Wolves had six different goal-scorers. Hilbert travels to Hershey Park to play Lebanon Valley while Alvernia hosts Canton.

    Buff State 1 - Wilkes 0 - Sage Running Rabbit broke a scoreless tie with 30 seconds left in regulation to secure a win in game 1 of the season. This was a bit of redemption for Running Rabbit who had a shot on an empty net get blocked by a Wilkes defender. The net was empty due to Wilkes' goalie crashing into a defender behind the goal. Rematch tomorrow.

    Stevenson 4 - Trine 3 - Hannah Labbe scored the goal 3 minutes into a five minute OT period. Rematch tomorrow.

    Canton 5 - Lebanon Valley 4 - Canton outshot LVC in their own barn 43-18 but only managed to pull out a one-goal victory when Iida Laitinen scored with 3 minutes and change left in the game. LVC hosts Hilbert tomorrow.

    Elmira 3 - Utica 2 - Elmira scored at just under 4 minutes in but Utica would fight back with two goals in succession midway through the first. Elmira would have to battle until 9 seconds left in the 2nd to tie it at 2. Freshman MK Boyle would score with just under 3 minutes left in the 3rd to give Elmira the win. Both teams are off until next Friday.

    Worcester State 5 - Nichols 4 - A bit of a heartbreaker for Nichols. Down 3-0 midway in the game, they would claw one back for 3-1 only to drop down to a 4-1 deficit two minutes into the 3rd. Nichols would battle back scoring two in the middle part of the third and finally tie it at 4 with 21 seconds left in regulation. That momentum wouldn't carry as Worcester State would score 20 seconds into OT. Clare Conway would score a hat trick and an assist for Worcester State to lead the way.

    Curry 1 - Rivier 0

    Adrian 4 - Oswego 1

    UNE 2 - USM 1

    UW-Superior 5 - Lawrence 0

    GAC 1 - Augsburg 0

    St. Olaf 2 - UW-SP 1

    UW-EC 4 - CSB 1

    Lake Forest 4 - St. Mary's 2

    SNC 4 - Hamline 2

    10/29 Scores:

    Augsburg 4 - UW-River Falls 3 - In what might be the upset of the weekend, Augsburg overcame a 2-0 deficit in the first on the back on two goals from Katie Flynn to tie the game. Nora Stepan would give the visitors the lead with a shorty late in the second, and Kennedy Stein would add the 4th goal 22 seconds into the 3rd period. Emma Schmitz would get one back for River Falls with 43 seconds left on the clock (box doesn't note if it was an extra attacker goal or not). This game also had quite a few of the rougher penalties called with a cross-check, roughing and a slash added into your standard trips, hooks and holds.

    Endicott 4 - Southern Maine 3 - Quin Healy scores with two minutes left in regulation to cap off a game that saw the Gulls come back from an early 1-0 deficit to take a 3-1 lead into the third period. The Gulls would see that lead evaporate when Peyton Dukas and Olivia Steward scored for USM roughly 90 seconds apart.

    Worcester State 3 - Plymouth State 2 - Worcester State made it 3-0 early in the second and Plymouth couldn't quite go as far as Nichols did against them yesterday.

    Alvernia 2 - SUNY Canton 2

    Lebanon Valley 7 - Hilbert 0 -Not as bad a showing for shorthanded Hilbert today as yesterday, but they still lost big.

    Castleton 3 - Rivier 0

    UMB 2 - Suffolk 1

    WNEU 3 - Anna Maria 0

    Aurora 6 - Chatham 1

    William Smith 1 - SUNY Morrisville 1


    Exhibition: Plattsburgh 6 - St. Michaels 0 - Plattsburgh scored two goals in a minute in two different points of the first (2 in the first minute and 2 more around the 16th minute) to take a commanding 4-0 lead after 1 and never let up. The Cardinals scored two more 90 seconds apart in the second to make it 6-0 and then skated with the Purple Knights to a scoreless 3rd. After Nease played the whole game yesterday, the other two goalies Beaubien and Davis split duties down the middle today. The Cardinals first games that count are next weekend at Morrisville.

    Adrian 5 - Oswego 0 - Adrian scored 3 power play goals to win their opening weekend series.

    Lake Forest - 3 - St. Mary's 3

    Stevenson 3 - Trine 2

    St. Catherine 5 - Finlandia 2

    NEC 6 - Neumann 2

    Buffalo State 7 - Wilkes 1

    UW-Superior 3 - Lawrence 2 - Jenna Hoops scores 46 seconds into OT to secure the sweep.

    UW-Eau Claire - CSB - Sophie Rausch scores around midway into OT to get the sweep for the Blugolds


    UW-SP 4 - St. Olaf 1 - Stevens Point built a 4-0 lead to take into the final period and would have avenged yesterday's loss with a shutout had it not been for a goal from Annika Patterson with 42 seconds left on the clock to put St. Olaf on the scoreboard.

    Hamline 3 - St. Norbert 2 - Nikki Olund scored two goals and Sydney Lemke added a third to help the Pipers get their win back.

          Very exciting game that saw four goals in the last 3 mins of regulation but also saw a scary incident with a Norwich player stretchered off the ice in the 3rd.

          Norwich's Teft opened scoring in the first with a snipe of the Cardinal goalie Nease.

          Plattsburgh responded with a strong open to the second period with Olshansky tapping in a rebound of a Krauseneck shot to tie and Nicole Unsworth adding to her career goals tally against the Cadets for the 2-1 lead, both within the first 5 mins of the period.

          Girouard would tie it for Norwich midway through the period and they went tied 2-2 into the dressing room.

          Things were even in the early third. Around 7 minutes into the period defender Neris Archambault was in the mid slot of the Cadets zone facing the point when Plattsburgh first year McLean collided with her and she had to be stretchered off the ice.

          Play resumed after a long break. The Cardinals had control of most of play when it resumed and was able to take a 3-2 lead when Sara Krauseneck took a pass from defender Balfour and skated through the circle and fired at goalie Leocadia Clark and the puck would bounce off Clark into the goal with 2:53 left in the period.

          The Cadets rallied, seemingly breaking the back of the Cards. Nikki Lague tied when she fired a loose puck from the point. Nease went to her left and the puck went in past her right pad. Seconds later Girouard would beat Wasik and Caterina to get in alone on Nease and tuck it past Nease with exactly 2:00 left in regulation. Wasik also was assessed a penalty on the play, meaning the Cards would have to comeback shorthanded.

          And that they did. Norwich tried to play keep-away but Sierra Benjamin was able to use her size to get the puck in the far corner of their defensive zone out to forward Masotta and then scrambled out to join her in the neutral zone and receive a pass. Benjamin did her best impression of the Cardinals' assistant coach Duquette skating through the neutral and offensive zone past the defense to shoot on the goalie's left side. Clark made the save but Masotta got a rebound out to Mattie Norton at the point who fired it over Clark's left shoulder for the tie.

          Plattsburgh dominated posession in the 3 on 3 OT better than they had any point in the game but it was stopping an attempted counter attack where they sealed it. Ciara Wall was forced from the point into the neutral zone despite her size advantage but was able to poke check two different attempts to get past her along the near boards. The second of which got to Massotta who deked around a defender and scored the OT winner against her former team.

          Great game. Praying fot Archambault to have a fast and full recovery.

            Massive weekend in D-III women's hockey culminated with the highly anticipated Cardinal/Panther Classic out at Plattsburgh.


            4 of the top 6 ranked teams faced off in the tournament, with only one combined loss between the four squads coming in.

            On Saturday, #6 River Falls overcame a late second period deficit at host #3 Plattsburgh, scoring with 10 seconds remaining to knot it at 2 after 2. Aubrey Nelvin scored the eventual game-winner about 7 minutes into the third to notch a MASSIVE win for UWRF, and the West region as a whole. The game was very even, and Plattsburgh showed out very well, including a late push to attempt to tie it. However, this was an outstanding effort by Coach Joe's team who lost a lot of production from last season's record-breaking squad.

            Later that night, #1 Middlebury matched up against #4 Elmira in a rematch from last year's National Semifinal. The Panthers extended their winning streak again, defeating the Soaring Eagles 3-1 to advance to the title game. Midd got off to a hot start, dominating play, but only notching the one goal due to a strong performance in net by Elmira's Leonie Kuehberger. Elmira got a goal early in the 3rd to make it a one-score game, but Middlebury controlled play in the zone for the next few minutes before Maddie Bayard put her team back up by two.

            Sunday, Elmira and Plattsburgh played in the third place game, just as they did last year in the National Tournament. Plattsburgh spanked Elmira 7-0, though the game was more competitive than the score indicated. The game got a bit out of hand, due to a 4-5 powerplay night for the Cards. Hats off to Lilla Nease of SUNY Plattsburgh, who prevented any kind of Elmira comeback in the second period, stopping all 17 shots, and posted a 34 save shutout.

            In the title game, River Falls outlasted Middlebury in overtime, as Makenna Aure scored the game-winner in 3 on 3 overtime, snapping the Panthers' 31-game winning streak. After the Falcons' leading scorer McCollins scored to give the Falcons a 2-1 lead early in the third, Middlebury made a strong push after getting outplayed most of the night. After UWRF did good work on the PK off a late penalty taken by the Falcons, Middlebury broke through on the power play with just 14 seconds remaining to send this one to sudden-death OT. Sophia Will was busy for Middlebury, as she was peppered with 43 shots on goal, but played strongly overall.


            -The other tournament this weekend in D3WHKY was the Codfish bowl, hosted by UMass Boston. On Friday, #10 Colby shut out the host Beacons 3-0 in dominating fashion. In the other game, the Polar Bears of Bowdoin pulled the upset, defeating #5 Naz in overtime, playing very impressively. The Golden Flyers really needed that one to get a chance at Colby to improve their RPI and strength of schedule in the weaker UCHC, but Bowdoin took it to them, and made the final an All-NESCAC championship. In the consolation game, Nazareth rebounded, defeating UMB 4-2 and salvaging a win. In the championship, the Mules of Colby started hot, scoring 3 in the 1st period on their way to a 4-1 win over their conference rival, Bowdoin. Coincidentally, these teams play twice next weekend in NESCAC play.

            -Trinity bounced back from their opening series sweep against Midd, defeating UNE, and Salem

            -Oswego stays hot, upsetting #13 Hamilton on the road

            -Manhattanville continues to come back down to earth as their schedule has ramped up, fighting hard, but dropping games to Wesleyan and Amherst

            -#7 Adrian crushes Chatham 6-1

            -Williams dominates Cortland 6-1, as the Red Dragons look to be a bit overrated thus far


            Looking ahead, early signs are pointing to the NESCAC once again being the most dominant conference out east. Although Middlebury lost, the NESCAC is doing very well in out-of-conference play. #10 Colby is sure to rise in the rankings, as they look to be the biggest challenger to Middlebury so far. Amherst looks strong too, with that impressive win @ Manhattanville. Bowdoin has the win over Naz. Conn. College has beaten Suffolk, and Trinity 2 solid OOC wins. Hamilton and Williams have both split OOC games, but lost close to good teams in Oswego and Endicott.

            Elmira lost both games this weekend, but I think they're still primed to make a run in the NEHC. Coach Bobrowski still has a great squad, and I think they'll battle Norwich for the conference autobid. They'll have more chances at signature wins in the later tournament, where they'll get another shot against Plattsburgh.

            The biggest takeaway by far of the weekend was River Falls beating Plattsburgh and Middlebury after a long trip, and this could prove to mean tons in the long run.

            The west has struggled in the past capitalizing on the very few regular season games they get with East teams, especially given the travel involved. River Falls beating #1 and #3 could mean wonders come March for the west. The top teams out west have been longing for a title, and between River Falls, Gustavus, Adrian, and Eau Claire, it looks like they might have as much talent as ever. These results will help their RPI and Pairwise drastically down the line. There's a lot of hockey left, but this could possibly help them get a Frozen Four in the Midwest.


            • #7
              I was at the Cardinal-Panther for the first three games and followed what I could of the final listening in the car and what River Falls was best at was keeping their opponents from getting a lot of opportunities.

              Plattsburgh in particular had a lot of trouble putting plays together and was relying on their great individual players to counterpunch and keep it close.

              I think Middlebury dominated play against Elmira in day one even more than RF did Plattsburgh and it confirmed that Middlebury is still far ahead of other eastern teams.

              In day 2, Plattsburgh and Elmira were pretty much even on shots but the Cardinals had superior finishing ability, including three powerplays where they scored within the first 30 seconds.

              I think UWRF, Midd and GAC are in a tier to themselves right now with Plattsburgh the top of the rest of the contenders: teams like Elmira, Norwich, Colby, Eau Claire, Adrian and Endicott that are still a threat to those first three come March if they can continue to improve.

                I think it's hard to put Middlebury in a class by themselves just yet. They've only played a handful of games. They split with the two best teams they've played. I think we need to see a few more games (including Plattsburgh against Middlebury) before we anoint them the class of the east. (and they still may be.... I think it's just too early to say so).

                I will say it is impressive for River Falls to travel to Plattsburgh and beat the Cardinals and the Panthers, but they also have a loss to 3-4-1 Augsburg. There is still a lot to be sorted out over the next several months.

                Penn State Class of '95
                Plattsburgh State Class of '99

                  Bit of a hangover from the Card/Panther as both Plattsburgh and Middlebury lost in conference play to Cortland and Amherst respectively.

                  Plattsburgh shut out for the first time since 2018 against Adrian. Cortland excelled at playing along the boards (especially early) and like River Falls against Plattsburgh the Red Dragoms applied a lot of pressure to prevent sustained offense. Plattsburgh will look to rebound tomorrow against an Oswego squad that defeated hapless Buffalo State 9-2 today

                    Plattsburgh bounces back against their loss to Cortland with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Oswego. The teams were very even throughout. Plattsburgh controlled play for a lot of the first but only came away with one goal in that period (a deflection of a Mattie Norton shot by Nicole Unsworth). Things were much more even in the second. Oswego would score in the second when a shot from Ashlyn McGrath would squirt through the goalie Nease. Oswego scored again in the second off a rebound but a premature whistle from the refs wiped the goal off the board. Play would be even until midway through the third when Nicole Unsworth, the James Harden/Kevin Durant of DIII WIH used her great iso play to counterattack a broken two on one break by Oswego into a streak up the near boards, pulling around the defender like one would a pylon and tucking the puck past the goalie Levy to put Plattsburgh up 2-1. The insurance goal came over a minute later when the defender Wasik managed to keep a blocked shot she made at the point in the zone and get it down to Olshansky along the boards. Olshansky created just enough space to get a shot off which Julia Masotta redirected over Levy's glove to make it 3-1. Oswego would get one back when after a penalty with ~3 mins left coach Digby pulled Levy and the 6 on 4 advantage created enough traffic for Laker defender Amanda Zenstein to score from the point. The Lakers would pull the goalie again but would be unable to score, so the Cardinals steal one from the Lakers, snapping the home team's 8-game winning streak.

                    Amherst follows up their 4-2 upset of Middlebury with another 4-2 win over Middlebury. Amherst is now 5-1 with the lone loss a game against Hamilton their first weekend.

                    Gustavus sweeps St. Mary's to remain perfect at 10-0.

                    Colby sweeps Bowdoin to remain perfect at 5-0.

                    Aurora is now 9-1-1 to start the season after completing a sweep against Lawrence.

                    Utica sweeps Alvernia to go 8-1-1.

                    Elmira gets to 9-2 after defeating Castleton.

                    The only undefeated teams in DIII WIH are GAC at 10-0, Adrian at 9-0 and Colby at 5-0.

                    The next week will have some big games:

                    Wed 12/7: GAC at Wisconsin-River Falls
                    Sat 12/10: UWRF @ Gustavus Adolphus, Plattsburgh vs Elmira (at Norwich), Adrian at Norwich, Hamilton vs Endicott
                    Sun 12/11: Plattsburgh vs Adrian or Norwich, Elmira vs Adrian or Norwich, Endicott vs Hamilton

                    If GAC can sweep UWRF I think it establishes them as the heavy favorite for both hosting and winning the NCAA championship barring any upsets. IF UWRF sweeps I think they become the favorite, but not as heavily considering they have that loss to Augsburg...

                      Wait Wait Wait, Alice I'm having the Big One. Has the DIII poll EVER had three west teams as the top three? Had to be massive fraud in the 20 votes, how could this possibly happen, needs to be investigated and at least any East team ranked as number one. Maybe a sign of the end of life as we know it. Looking forward to the big clash Wednesday and Saturday of 1 and 2.

                          #1 Gusties win 2-0 on the road over #2 River Falls. Rematch this weekend


                          • #14
                            River Falls wins 3-0 [ENG] over GAC to break the 2022 runner-up's undefeated 2022-23 record. Both teams won on the road in this home and home.

                            Elmira currently leading Plattsburgh 1-0 in the first game of Norwich's East-West Classic. First time I can recall no commentary on a Norwich internet feed.


                            • #15
                              Plattsburgh would rally on two power plays (like the first game against Elmira scoring early in both advantages) to make it 2-1 in the 3rd. Plattsburgh would do well to keep Elmira from scoring but a shot from an Elmira defender managed to find twine with 3 mins and change left in the game.

                              Like in the Norwich game at home, Plattsburgh looked most dynamic playing 3 on 3, with Krauseneck, Masotta and Benjamin as one 2 F-1 D unit and Unsworth, Boric and Norton and the second. Plattsburgh had most of the OT opportunities.

                              In the final 20 seconds, Unsworth would be in the defensive zone and attempt a stretch pass to Boric out near the Plattsburgh bench in the neutral zone. An Elmira player intercepted right near Boric and Boric was able to back check it free and bring it in the offensive zone. She was contested at the center point area with her back to the net so she passed to Norton at the right point who was facing the right way and uncovered. Norton took a short stride to just in the top of the far circle and fired it home for the game winner.

                              Plattsburgh awaits the winner of Norwich vs Adrian
