Women's Ice Hockey Ties Brown, 0-0

HAMDEN, Conn. - Freshman goaltender Victoria Vigilanti (Woodbridge, Ontario) recorded a season-high of 34 saves as the Quinnipiac University women's ice hockey team tied Brown, 0-0, Friday evening. The Bobcats' record now stands at 4-3-2 overall with a 2-0-1 record in ECAC Hockey. The Bears' record holds at 1-3-1 on the year, with a 0-2-1 stance in conference play.

"We had a lot of scoring opportunities throughout the game," said head coach Rick Seeley. "We saw several chances to bury the puck, but their freshman goalie played very well. Vigilanti came through on our side as well, and she was definitely there when we needed her."

One of the Bobcats best scoring opportunities came with one second remaining in the second period when they fired the puck off the post out of play. Each team saw a number of shots, with Brown holding a 34-32 advantage over Quinnipiac. Senior forward Kallie Flor (Farmington, Minn.) led the Bobcats with six shots on goal.

Vigilanti's season-high of 34 saves topped her previous record of 33, which she set at the University of New Hampshire on Oct. 4. The Bears' goaltender, Katie Jamieson, turned aside 32 shots in Brown's first tie of the season.

The Bobcats return to action tomorrow when they travel to New Haven, Conn. to take on intrastate rival, Yale. The game is scheduled to start at 4 p.m.
