Feb. 8, 2003

Providence, RI - The women's hockey team dropped a 3-0 decision to #4 Dartmouth Saturday afternoon at Meehan Auditorium. The Bears fall to 9-9-4 overall and 6-4-1 in the ECAC. Brown senior Pam Dreyer and Dartmouth senior Amy Ferguson both played spectacular games in net, making 31 saves each. Dartmouth took a 1-0 lead late in the first period and kept the lead for good as Brown was unable to get on the board.

Dartmouth out-shot Brown 18-9 in the opening period as the Big Green went into the locker room with a 1-0 lead. Both teams had several scoring opportunities but Dreyer and Ferguson didn't allow much to get past them as Dreyer made 17 saves and Ferguson stopped all nine of the Bears shots. Dreyer made several huge stops, including two key breakaway saves. Dartmouth got its lone goal of the period when freshman Gillian Apps got her own rebound in front of the net on a breakaway. The unassisted goal was her 16th of the season.

The second period was much of the same with several spectacular saves on both ends. The Bears nearly knotted the game 1-1 on several plays, including one where sophomore Katie Guay went on a breakaway but Ferguson made the stop, shutting out the Bears once again in the second period. Brown out-shot Dartmouth 11-7, upping Dreyer's save total to 20 through 40 minutes of play.

The Big Green broke the game open in the third and final period as they scored two goals for a final of 3-0. Senior Correne Bredin gave Dartmouth a 2-0 lead nearly five minutes into the period when the puck ricocheted off Dreyer's pad and into the net. Sophomore Krista Dornfried and senior Amy Catlin earned assists on the play. Bredin helped seal the victory when she went top shelf for her second goal of the game at the 17:14 mark, unassisted.

Brown continues action on Wednesday Feb. 12th at 7:00 p.m. at Providence.
