The Saint Anselm College women’s hockey team extended its winning streak to four games with a 2-1 win over Connecticut College on Tuesday at Sullivan Arena. A pair of second-period goals and 25 saves from Maddie Scavotto sealed the deal for the Hawks (14-2-1, 9-0-1 NEWHA), who have won seven of their last eight games.
Kaley Campbell tallied the opening goal for the Hawks before Katy Meehan capped the scoring two minutes later. Scavotto allowed a power-play goal with 2:43 to play, but she was brilliant otherwise while making at least eight saves in each period.

Salve Regina 2, Plymouth State 1: In Portsmouth, R.I., John McLean broke a 1-1 tie for the Osprey in the second period and it proved to be the difference to downing the Panthers (9-5-3, 6-2-2 NEHC). Ryan Stevens tied the game with a first-period strike for PSU, which got 33 saves from goalie Evan Morelli.
New England College 5, Salem State 0: In Henniker, the Pilgrims (12-3-4, 6-3-4 NEHC) stretched their unbeaten streak to 12 games behind a pair of goals from Channing Gorscak and the shutout by Spencer Kozlowski (31 saves).
