NEWJHL: Express Split with the New Jersey Rockets

Walpole, MA  - On Saturday, February 11th, the Express took down the #1 seed New Jersey Rockets. The Rockets got on the board first at the 12:30 mark, however Shanley Austin would quickly respond a mere 11 seconds later. The Express girls would pick up 3 unanswered goals; one in the second period from Cassi Ronan at 5:45 and another one from Shanley Austin at 3:34 of the third period. The game would end in a 3-2 victory.

The teams would quickly meet again the next day at 11:20AM, in what would prove to be another terrific effort by the Express, despite falling 0-2 to the Rockets. The Rockets would get on the board just 5 seconds into the first period off a miscommunication between two Express players. The Express were all over the Rockets for the duration of the game but just couldn't get one past the Rockets goaltender.

The Express received a 5 minute major penalty at the end of the game, and when they pulled goaltender Lily O’Neil to get back to even strength, the Rockets were able to take a 2-0 lead on the empty net goal.

Coach Danielle Doherty was proud of her teams complete effort, "It was one of our better offensive games. We peppered the Rockets goaltender with shots but we could not find the back of the net."
