PAWTUCKET, RI – Coming off a hard fought 5-2 loss the day before and taking on a Connecticut College team that had eight days off was a tall order for the Johnson & Wales University women's ice hockey team. The Wildcats dropped a 10-0 decision to the Camels on Sunday at Lynch Arena.
The loss dropped the Wildcats' record to 0-10 on the year while the Camels picked up their first win of the season to improve to 1-2.
Connecticut College only had a 1-0 lead midway through the first period but struck for three goals in the span of four minutes to build an insurmountable lead. Katlyn Paiva, Paige Michel and Lily Connolly all tallied goals as the Camels took a 4-0 lead into the intermission.
The Wildcats had their chances in the second period as Connecticut College committed three penalties halfway through the period. Johnson & Wales got off seven shots with the advantage, including three from Madisan Millar (Anchorage, Alaska), but couldn't find the back of the net.
Johnson & Wales was outshot 54-12 by the visitors. Freshman Chelsey Shaw (Rochester, NH) saw her first collegiate action in net, as she turned away 21 shots while allowing six goals.
The Wildcats are back in action on Saturday, December 5, when they play host to New England College at 5:30 p.m.
