Senior Arielle DeSmet and freshman Sarah Marchand are the College Hockey America Goaltender and Rookie of the week following Syracuse’s weekend at Penn State. The Orange tied the Nittany Lions, 1-1 in overtime, on Friday and beat PSU, 2-1 in overtime, on Saturday, propelling them into first place in the CHA standings. DeSmet recorded 99 saves in two games and Marchand had a hand in both goals in the win on Saturday.

DeSmet had a career-high 54 saves in the victory on Saturday, a performance that ranks second on the Syracuse single-game saves record list. She had 45 saves in the first game of the series. She has posted 40+ saves in a game five times this year. Her .941 save percentage ranks eighth nationally and is the best single-season mark in Orange history. DeSmet has 668 saves this season, which ranks fifth on the Orange record chart. This marks DeSmet’s fifth CHA Goaltender of the Week honor this season.

In Saturday’s win, Marchand scored the game-winner with one minute left in overtime. She gathered a loose puck on the boards in the neutral zone and carried it up the right side of the ice in a two-on-one with forward Victoria Klimek and fired a shot into the left side of the net for the goal. Marchand assisted on Syracuse’s first goal, increasing her multi-point game total to seven. She leads Syracuse in assists (15) and is second in points (24) and goals (9). She is the top freshman and ranks eight overall in the CHA in faceoff wing percentage (.474). It is Marchand’s third CHA Rookie of the Week honor this season.
