Women's Ice Hockey Suffers Loss to UPenn

By Gara Mendez

The women's ice hockey team met the University of Pennsylvania team in the Johnson Athletic Center Saturday afternoon. The game ended 62 in favor of UPenn.

The starting offensive lineup consisted of Gina Ferrante '98, Cynara Wu G, and Aradhana Narula G. They worked hard offensively, scoring one goal within the first period. Wu scored the goal off a rebound, with an assist credited to Narula. Wu later scored the second goal in a similar fashion in the second period.

Team captain Erica Hanley '95 led her offensive line with some amazing passes in the remaining periods. Kathleen Hayashibara G, who started playing goalie just this year, played strong from the beginning making some amazing saves. However, it was hard to stop a UPenn recruit who scored five of the team's six goals and assisted on the other.

The team's next game will also be at home, on Sunday afternoon against Boston University.
