NEWJHL: Girls Top UMASS Amherst Club Team

Walpole, MA  - The Express girls got a taste of College Hockey play when they headed up to Amherst Friday night. The girls played NCAA rules instead of USA Hockey rules, which was a great experience for them. After the first, the game was scoreless. Five minutes into the second, Hayley Parrish got the Express on the board, assisted by Morgan Almon. Before the period expired, UMASS would geton the board leaving the game tied at 1 going into the third. Quickly into the third, UMASS took the lead. However, with 5 minutes left in the game, Marissa Massaro tied the game with assists from Shanley Austin and Cassi Ronan. Massaro would follow that up with 2 minutes remaining in regulation to give the Express a 3-2 lead. The team was able to kill off a 6-4 UMASS advantage and went home with the victory.

Sunday saw the Express drop a tough one to the Northern Cyclones in Hudson, NH. The Express came out flying and pulled out to a quick 2-0 lead on goals from Hayley Parrish. The Cyclones were able to bounce back and tied the game at 2. The Cyclones went on to score 3 unanswered goals leaving the Express trailing 3-2 after the second. In the third, the Cyclones would go up 4-2. Hayley Parrish quickly responded for her third of the game making it 4-3. The Cyclones would then score 3 unanswered goals defeating the Express 7-3. Coach Doherty was still proud of her team saying, "The score did not dictate how the game went. It was a very competitive, back and forth hockey game; the Cyclones were just able to find the back of the net more easily than the Express."
