CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – For the second time this season, Harvard women's hockey netminder Emerance Maschmeyer has collected ECAC Goaltender of the Week honors, the conference announced Tuesday. Maschmeyer spearheaded a 2-0 weekend in the North Country, including posting a shutout of No. 6 Clarkson on Saturday. In total, the sophomore collected 62 saves over the two games.

Against St. Lawrence on Friday, the Crimson (5-1-0, 5-1-0 ECAC) reeled off three goals in the first period to ultimately outlast the Saints, 3-2. Maschmeyer was put to the test in the second and third periods, however, facing 10 and 11 shots, respectively, and six SLU power plays. For its part, the Crimson held the Saints scoreless with the advantage, and still remains the only squad not to allow a power play goal this season, going 30-for-30 on the kill.

In the 2-0 win over Clarkson, Maschmeyer really dominated, especially as the game wore on. The Knights outshot the Crimson, 36-19, over the 60 minutes, including 16-7 in the second and 13-6 in the third period. But the Bruderheim, Alberta, native held firm, stopping every barrage that came her way, while utilizing the strength of the defense in front of her to kill six more power plays.

The Crimson return to the ice in the comforts of the Bright-Landry Hockey Center this weekend as Cornell and Colgate pay visits for a pair of ECAC showdowns.
