FPU women’s ice hockey waxed by Dartmouth

WINCHENDON, Mass. — The Franklin Pierce University women’s ice hockey team surrendered three goals in a span of just 3:35 early in the first period on Tuesday night, and it would not get any better from there inside the Jason Ritchie Ice Arena.

The Ravens trailed 4-0 after one and gave up two more in the second, on the way to a 7-0, non-conference loss to Dartmouth. Seven different players scored for the Big Green.

With the loss, Franklin Pierce falls to 8-7-1 and has lost three in a row, while Dartmouth improves to 5-8-0.

The Ravens are on the road this weekend for their final action before the winter break, with a non-conference weekend series at Union. Puck drop is set for 6 p.m. on Friday and 3 p.m. on Saturday at Messa Rink in Schenectady, N.Y.
