College Sports Roundup: Dartmouth comeback falls short vs. Cornell

The Cornell men's hockey team jumped to a three-goal lead and held on to snare a 4-2 win over Dartmouth at Thompson Arena in Hanover Friday evening.

The win snapped a seven-game slide for the Big Red (9-13-2, 4-10-2 ECAC) and slowed Dartmouth's (11-9-4, 7-7-3) bid for a top-four seed and a first-round bye in the upcoming tournament.

Cornell limped into Dartmouth's den having lost 10 of 12 games since the start of the second half of the season. Cornell took charge in the second period on goals from Joel Lowry, Madison Dias and Greg Miller. Dartmouth, ranked 17th nationally, pulled within one goal on scores by Tyler Sikuar and Nick Bligh.

Cornell ended any hope of a last-minute tie by scoring an empty-net goal in the final minute of play. Dartmouth has not defeated Cornell in nine straight (0-7-2) contests between the two dating back to the 2010-11 campaign.


The Big Green host Colgate Saturday night.


St. Anselm 6, Southern Maine 4: In Manchester, Tim King scored twice helping the Hawks (12-8-3, 8-7-2 ECAC) open a three-goal bulge midway through the third period, but Southern Maine (7-17, 4-13 ECAC) rallied with two scores. Joe Tebino's empty netter in the final minute ensured the win.



Women's hockey



UNH 6, Providence College 4: In Providence, senior forward Kristina Lavoie tallied a hat trick to spark the Wildcats' (13-14-2, 9-7-1 Hockey East) victory over the Friars (14-12-2, 8-7-2). Wildcats net minder Jenn Gilligan saved 24 of the 28 shots sent her way.

Dartmouth 3, Colgate 2: In Hamilton, N.Y., the Big Green (15-7-4, 10-6-3 ECAC) jumped out to an early three-goal lead and held off a late surge by Colgate for their third straight conference victory. Senior forward Camille Dumais netted a goal for the second straight game while freshman Laura Stacey picked up her team-leading 14th assist in the victory.

St. Anselm 11, Plymouth State 0: In Manchester, Kathryn Picarello and Rosemarie Giarrusso each netted hat tricks helping the Hawks (16-4-4, 11-2-4 ECAC) to their fourth straight triumph. Playing in the 100th game of her career, Picarello became the third player in program history to reach the 100-point plateau. In addition to her three goals she handed out six assists and broke a school record. Her nine point-evening shattered the Hawks' previous record of five that stood for five seasons.

Ali Ponte came off the bench for Plymouth ((4-16-4, 3-10-4) and saved 34 of the 44 shots sent her way.

New England College 5, Salve Regina 2: In Henniker, five Pilgrims scored a goal to secure a the Pilgrims' (8-10-6) home-ice victory.

Franklin Pierce 3, Sacred Heart 2: In Winchendon Mass., Ravens freshman forward Karsyn Baker scored a shorthanded, game-winning goal and added two assists in the win while classmate Michaela Faia scored as Franklin Pierce improved to 7-13-0.

Women's basketball



Princeton 77, Dartmouth 65: In Princeton, N,J., the Big Green had their four-game win streak snapped despite a career-high 19-point effort from junior guard Nicola Zimmer.
