MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State Women's Ice Hockey team was shut out for the fourth time this season as they suffered a 4-0 loss at home in their final game of 2015.
The visiting Pioneers from Utica College tallied 40 shots on goal in the game, 32 of which came in the first two periods alone. The high number of shots paid off for the visitors as they found the back of the net twice in each the first and second periods.
The Mustangs had their best opportunity to score at the end of the first period as they forced the Pioneers into back-to-back penalties with less than two minutes remaining. However, the one minute and thirty second 5 v 3 skater advantage did not work out for the Mustangs as Utica ran their penalty kill defense to near perfection.
The Morrisville women, who have not posted a win since November 21, will look ahead to 2016 when they return to the ice at home against William Smith on Tuesday, January 5 at 7:00 PM.
