New Hampshire women's hockey falls to St. Lawrence, 2-1

DURHAM, N.H. -- Lindsay Charlebois scored 33 seconds into overtime to lead seventh-ranked St. Lawrence University to Friday night's 2-1 ECAC victory against No. 8 University of New Hampshire at the Whittemore Center.

Following a scoreless third period, Charlebois' shot from the blue line deflected off a skater in the slot and floated into the net to give the Saints the win. SLU won its fourth straight game to improve to 4-2-1 overall and 3-0-0 in the conference. UNH had its three-game winning streak snapped and is now 6-2-0 overall and 3-2-0 in the league.

SLU took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission when Gina Kingsbury scored a power-play goal at 15:45. Kingsbury circled behind the net and her wrist shot from the right circle trickled between the leg pads of Jen Huggon (Plymouth, Mass.).

The Wildcats tied the game, 1-1, late in the middle stanza on a Kira Misikowetz (Mississauga, Ontario) wraparound goal at 16:35. Nicole Stefanilo (Sanford,Maine) and Kristine Butt (Pembroke, Mass.) set up the tally.

With the game tied, 1-1, through two periods, Huggon stopped Kingsbury on a breakaway at 8:30. On a Wildcat power play less than one minute later, Misikowetz hit the post on a redirection in front of the net.

Huggon finished with 30 saves. Rachel Barrie stopped 19 shots.

New Hampshire continues its four-game homestand Nov. 18 against Cornell University. Game time is 7 p.m.
