Late Goal Propels Brown to 2-2 Tie Versus RPI
PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Brown scored the first and last goals of the game on Friday night at Meehan Auditorium against ECAC Hockey foe Rensselaer, on their way to a 2-2 tie. At the 12-minute mark in the third period, rookie forward Sarah Robson (Mississauga, Ontario) made a highlight reel goal to push the Bears into a 2-2 tie.
It was a slow paced first period but the scoring picked up quickly in the second period as three goals were scored in just over a minute and a half.
Brown struck first as the Bears controlled the puck deep in the RPI zone. Senior co-captain Katelyn Landry (Belmont, Mass.) was able to put a shot on net, and classmate Skyelar Siwak (Olds, Alberta) quickly took the rebound and put it past the Engineer goalie for a 1-0 Bruno lead.
The lead would not last however as RPI scored just 48 seconds later when Toni Sanders was able to put one in the back of the net.
Just 50 seconds later a power play opportunity for the Engineers led to a 2-1 lead for RPI as Taylor Horton took the feed from Madison Marzario and put RPI up 1-0.
Brown would make the most of the third period, when Robson took control of the puck near the boards in the RPI zone. The rookie then showed sheer determination, fighting her way through the defense and past the goalie to tie the game at two.
Sophomore goalie Aubree Moore (Bowie, Md.) was solid between the pipes again for Brown, making 34 saves.
