Ithaca, NY - Behind a strong defense and a combined 34 points from sophomores Nia Marshall and Nicholle Aston, the Big Red (3-2) turned a one-point halftime margin into a 58-49 victory over the Marshall Thundering Herd (3-1) Wednesday evening at Newman Arena.

It's the third straight win on the young season for the Big Red.

Marshall added six boards and two steals along with her team-high 18 points, while Aston chipped in a career-high 16 points and ten rebounds - tying her career-best - for her first double-double of the season.

Leah Scott chipped in a game-high 21 points for Marshall.

Ithaca, NY - The Big Red moved its winning streak to three games with a nailbiting 3-1 win over the Colgate Raiders Tuesday  night at Lynah Rink.

Cornell (3-4-0, 3-2-0 ECAC Hockey) got goals from Kaitlin Doering, Hanna Bunton and Emily Fulton, who was credited for an empty-net goal with three seconds left in the final stanza. 

Paula Voorheis stopped 21 of 22 Colgate shots to pick up the victory. Voorheis has yielded four goals in the past three games. 

Leading 1-0 after one thanks to Doering's marker at 3:55, the Raiders (3-9-0, 1-4-0 ECAC Hockey) cashed in a power play goal off the stick of Megan Sullivan at 14:13 of the second to knot the game at one. 


The Red came out strong to start the third, with Hanna Bunton redirecting an Erin O'Connor slapshot past Raiders netminder Ashlynne Rando just 57 seconds into the final frame. 

The two teams then exchanged several shots on goal, with Rando and Voorheis making several spectacular saves to keep it a one-goal contest. 

Fulton's empty netter provided the final score.

Ithaca, NY - Four defensemen scored five goals as the Big Red powered its way past the Yale Bulldogs 6-2 Saturday afternoon at Lynah Rink.

Taylor Woods, who started her first game as a Big Red defenseman after playing for two-plus years as a forward, led the way with two goals, one each in the second and third periods.

Morgan Richardson and Sarah Knee chipped in first-period markers for Cornell (2-4-0, 2-2-0 ECAC Hockey) while Erin O'Connor added a goal and two assists for a six-point weekend.

Jillian Saulnier notched her second goal of the season to round out the scoring for the home team.


ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Week Courtney Pensavalle and Jamie Haddad contributed the goals for Yale (3-3-1, 1-3-0 ECAC Hockey).

Paula Voorhies turned aside 10 or 12 shots for her second straight victory; the Red poured 32 shots on Bulldogs netminder Jamie Leonoff, who stopped 26 of them.

The game was a special one for Cornell; one dollar for every fan in attendance was donated to the United Way of Tompkins County. In recognition of the team's charity work, Ithaca mayor and Cornell graduate Svante Myrick proclaimed Saturday to be Cornell Women's Hockey Day in the city of Ithaca.

Cornell turns its attention to Tuesday night, when it hosts the Colgate Raiders.

Ithaca, NY - The No. 5 Quinnipiac Bobcats (7-0-1, 2-0-0 ECAC Hockey) made three first-period goals stand up en route to a 3-0 win over the No. 8/6 Cornell Big Red Saturday afternoon at Lynah Rink.

Cornell (0-4-0, 0-2-0 ECAC Hockey) has dropped the first four games of a season for the first time since the 2003-2004 campaign. 


Taylar Cianfarano opened the scoring for the visitors by tapping home a rebound past a sprawling Paula Voorheis at the 4:32 mark of the first. 

That goal would be enough for Bobcats goaltender Chelsea Laden, who has given up just two goals in seven games for a microscopic 0.29 goals against average, which is the best in the nation.

Meghan Turner extended the lead to 2-0 at 17:18 and Emma Woods scored a power play goal with 33 seconds left in the opening stanza. 

Laden (7-0-0) stopped 14 shots for her fifth shutout of the young season, while Voorheis (0-3-0) had 27 saves for the Big Red.
