Coaching changes highlight weekend

NWHL

The NWHL goes on holiday break for the next two weeks.

Sat. Dec. 8

Buffalo Beauts beat Connecticut Whale; 3 - 1

Goals

  • Beauts: Julianna Iafallo, Hayley Scamurra, Emily Janiga
  • Whale: Katerina Mrázová

Friday night the Beauts announced they had let go their longstanding head coaches Craig Muni and Ric Seiling. In a pregame interview, GM and interim assistant coach Nik Fattey said the move was performance based.

The game had big implications for the standings. The Beauts were 3-3-0 with six points and the Whale were 2-3-1 with five points. A win for the Whale would put them ahead of the Beauts.

The Beauts were victorious though, bumping them ahead of the Whale.

Sun. Dec. 9

Boston Pride beat Metropolitan Riveters; 5 - 2

Goals

  • Pride: Amanada Pelkey (short handed), Dana Trivigno, Kaleigh Fratkin, Mallory Souliotis, McKenna Brand
  • Riveters: Madison Packer, Alexa Gruschow (short handed)

The Pride came in hot where the Riveters were ... not. Things looked okay-ish for the Riveters for the beginning of the game, even though the Pride opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal. The wheels fell off at the end of the game despite Gruschow’s short handed goal. The Pride scored two power plays goals within 30 second of each other before grabbing the empty net goal to secure the win. The Pride jumped to first place in the league while the Riveters fell to last.
