Cougar’s goaltender Sydney Isbell was kept busy in the second period as PSUC tallied up six goals after firing off 22 shots. Freshman Kayla Meneghin continued her hot-streak and completed a hat-trick, earning First Star honors in the game.
“She’s obviously had a great start to the season and there are bigger games to come, but she’s def played very well and has been very consistent and that’s something that’s hard to do as a freshman,” Houle said.
The Cardinals would find the back of the net two more times in the third. Chatham scored its lone-goal in the third as well. Camille Leonard got the start in net for PSUC and finished the day with 22 saves.
