RPI women's hockey pulled an incredible game away from Quinnipiac on Saturday, December 8th. RPI went into this game with a loss (2-5) the night before to Princeton and were struggling in the standings due to their away game losses. Quinnipiac had won against Union College the night before although they were similar in standings to RPI.
The game was incredibly intense. RPI came out playing hard and racked up a lot of shots on goal within the first few minutes. They obviously felt revved up from their loss the night before. But Quinnipiac wasn't going to let that stand. Qunnipiac is stacked with talented young players, five who played with the Canada U18 National Team and two with the USA U18 National Team. And a Finnish Senior National player.
They started shooting at Lovisa Selander, senior and captain and a member of the Swedish National Team who played at 4 Nations Cup this year. But Selander blocked all shots and the score was 0-0 up until the literal last second. Junior Blake Oroz scored on her own rebound from Sebrina Repaci. They play on the starting line.
Selander blocked 41 shots on goal. Her team on put 20 towards the Quinnipiac goalie but they came through when it counted. A really incredible game to see in person.
