Women’s Hockey’s Third Period Comeback Halted by RIT

Colby Sherwin

NEVILLE TOWNSHIP– After a three-game win streak, including a sweep of Syracuse, the Robert Morris women’s hockey team (6-6, 3-3 CHA) took on the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) (6-5-2, 2-2 CHA). The Tigers looked to end a seven-game losing streak against the Colonials.

Head Coach Logan Bittle spoke about what he has learned as a coach during the winning streak.

“We have to learn from wins; we are still a young team and have only been together for three months. We have to fix small mistakes if we want to keep winning,” Bittle said.

A fast-paced first period had no scoring, but the Colonials seemed to dominate with seven shots to RT’s five. The Tigers didn’t seem to be a threat when they had the puck. RMU did take three penaties, but were able to kill all of them off in the first.

“You have to stay out of the box… at some ,point when you put a team on the power play, they are going to score. We have to clean up mistakes and also not take any retaliation penalties,” Bittle spoke about the team’s time on the penalty kill.

In the second, the game seemed to get away from the Colonials, taking three trips to the box. The Tigers put all three in the back of their net. With taking all those penalties, the team also only mustered seven shots. One of them found the back of the net, and Mya Nugent scored for RMU. However, the Tigerswith goals from Kylie Aquaro, Addie Alvarez, Emma Roland, and Athena Vasdani. Going into the third, the Colonials had a hole to dig themselves out od to keep their winning streak alive.

“She [Nugent] got the puck popped out to her, got close, and crashed the net. We need four more of those to get back tonight, but I thought it was a nice play,” Bittle said on Mya Nugent’s goal.

The Colonials got two in the net in the third, but once again on the power play. The Tigers snuck a puck in the net to make the game 7-3, all but taking RMU out.

“We have to learn from this,” Bittle said. “We got taught a lesson tonight, but that’s also a good thing, too. The nice part of college hockey is that we will be back out tomorrow for another one. I can’t wait,” Bittle spoke about the team’s performance.

The Colonials and Tigers will be back in action tomorrow at 3 p.m. at the Island for another conference showdown.
