#14 Utica Pioneers dominate King’s College 10-1

The fourteenth-ranked Utica Pioneers Women’s Hockey Team (19-3-2 overall, 15-2-2 UCHC) steamrolled the King’s Monarchs (5-18-1 overall, 4-14-1 UCHC) Wednesday night led by Sydney Mintz and Angelina Garganese.

The first-year skaters each had a big night, with Mintz registering five points (two goals and three assists) and Garganese putting up four points (two goals and two assists).

Utica got the scoring started early and often in the first period to the delight of the home crowd at the Utica University Nexus Center. Madison Novotny 1:52 after the opening faceoff, followed by goals from Carolyn Whitney and Autumn Mish to stake the Pioneers to a 3-0 lead six minutes into the game. Maggie Rylott scored the game’s fourth goal with her eleventh marker of the season at the 12:39 mark. Less than a minute later Garganese scored her first goal of the goal of the game to close out the first period scoring with Mintz drawing the primary assist.

The Pioneers outshot the Monarchs 22-3 in the first period.

King’s scored the only goal of the second period when Rae Hughes lit the lamp with 1:42 left. It would be the only goal Utica goaltender Lauryn Brown would surrender.

The Utica Comets are getting the band back together

The Pioneers blew the game open in the third period with another five goals. Mintz scored twice, and Garganese got her second goal of the game as well. Veterans Carly Stefanini and Erica Sloan closed out the scoring with goals in the late stages of the game.

The teams will meet on Saturday afternoon at the Utica University Nexus Center which will close out the regular season for both squads. For more information about Utica Pioneers hockey, visit https://uticapioneers.com.
