Miranda Bookman ’20 celebrates one of her two goals against Trinity at the Olympic Center.

The first game was against the Hill School. Even with the long bus ride and full crowd in the stands, the girls had a high compete level and showed what skills they have. Late in the first period, Miranda Bookman (Forward, 2020) scored first for the Huskies off a rebound in front of the net to take a 1-0 lead. In the second stanza, Mackenzie Hull (Forward, 2020) put one in to push the lead to 2-0. Rachel Hinkley (Goaltender, 2021) saved all forty shots on net in the first two periods. In the third, Courtney Fairchild (Goaltender, 2020) came in net, and from the start, faced a fiercer and more tenacious Hill School squad that put relentless pressure on the Huskies and scored twice to send the game to overtime. Hill scored the winner in the first minute of OT to steal the victory.

The second game was against Lawrenceville, and the Huskies had many chances on net. It was Lawrenceville who capitalized first. The in the game, the Huskies looked like they would tie it up; they had many shots, but just couldn’t put it in the back of the net. The game ended with a Lawrenceville win, and Emilie Venne (Goaltender, 2020) saved 24 shots on net.

With this weekend’s games the Huskies go to 19-23-4 on the season. Next for the Huskies is the NAPHA playoffs in Stanstead, Quebec. Follow the Northwood Girls’ Hockey Twitter (@nwgirlshockey) for updates year round.
