Syracuse freshman Madison Primeau scored her seventh goal of the season in the Orange’s 2-1 loss to Princeton on Saturday at Tennity Ice Pavilion. The Etobicoke, Ontario native is tied for the team lead in goals with senior Abby Moloughney. Primeau scored her goal with five minutes left in the second period to bring Syracuse (6-9-4 overall, 5-3 College Hockey America) within one, 2-1. Neither team scored in the third period resulting in the 2-1 Princeton (6-5-3, 5-2-1 ECAC) win.
“I thought our team played hard. It was an honest hockey game with both teams playing hard,” said head coach Paul Flanagan. “We struggled to solve their goaltender. She is one of the best in the country. We had a lot of good, Grade A chances, we generated offense, and we dug in defensively. Both games this weekend were solid games. We have to build off of this.”
Princeton took a 1-0 lead at the 8:16 mark of the first period on a goal by Maggie Connors and then went up 2-0 when Kate Monihan scored at the 13:20 mark of the second period. Less than two minutes later Primeau scored on a shot right in front of the Tigers’ goal. Forward Marielle McHale and and defenseman Kambel Beacom assisted on the goal.
Syracuse will resume the season on January 1st at the Battle in the ‘Burgh Tournament in Pittsburgh. The Orange are scheduled to play Boston University in the first game on Saturday, Jan. 1st (4 pm) and will play either Penn State or St. Cloud game in the second contest on Sunday, Jan. 2nd.
