Jan. 10, 2004

The Brown University women's ice hockey team (6-4-2, 2-0-1) skated to a 5-5 tie with #3 Dartmouth (10-1-2, 4-0-1), Saturday afternoon at Meehan Auditorium in their third ECAC match-up of the season.

Dartmouth took the lead early into the first period with two quick goals within the first 10 minutes of play. However, Brown put themselves on the board with three minutes left in the period. After taking a series of shots to send the Dartmouth goalie sprawling in front of the net, junior Katie Guay (Westfield, MA) scored her fifth goal of the season to cut the Big Green lead to one. Sophomore Margaret Ramsay (Toronto, ONT) and junior Kerry Nugent (Andover, MA) tallied assists on the play.

The Bears went down 3-1 when Dartmouth scored ten seconds into the second period. At the 9:54 mark the Big Green took a 4-1 advantage with Gillian Apps scoring her third goal of the game on a power play. Brown did a good job fighting off the penalties for the remainder of the period and brought the game within two at the 15:31 mark. Junior Jessica Link (Clifton Park, NY) notched her 10th goal of the season off junior Amy McLaughlin's rebounded shot.

Trailing 4-2, the Bears scored three shots in a row to take a 5-4 lead in the third period. Ramsay brought the Bears within one just four minutes into the period. McLaughlin and sophomore Myria Heinhuis tallied assists on the play. Just over one minute later the Bears tied the game at four a-piece with a goal by freshman Kathryn Moos (Wayzata, MN) with Ramsay notching her 2nd assist of the day. At 10:28, McLaughlin scored her 3rd goal of the season to give the Bears the lead for the first time in the game. Dartmouth tied the game at 5-5 at 15:48 in the period to send the game into overtime. Neither team scored in overtime ending the game in a 5-5 tie. Senior goaltender Katie Germain (Sarnia, ONT) recorded 34 saves for the Bears.

Brown will host Vermont, tomorrow, January 11, at 2:00 p.m.
