LAST TIME OUT

RUNDOWN ON THE RAMS
Suffolk, now 6-7 overall and 4-4 in the GNAC, has been on an offensive rise as of late, scoring seven goals in its last two goals, both victories.
The upperclassmen have been the main ingredient to the Rams offense this season, led by junior Alexandra Nagri's 25 points off 12 scores and one handout. Classmate Jennifer Martin is the only other Ram with multiple scores as she found the back of the net nine times and passed out one assist for 19 points.
Kirsten Weiker has stood tall between the pipes for Suffolk with a 5-4 record with three shutouts. The sophomore keeper has turned away 74 attempts and allowed 20 goals. Julia Fieldsend and Jordan Pettograsso have also seen action in net for the Rams. Fieldsend is 0-2 with 21 stops, while Pettograsso sits at 1-1 with six saves to her credit.
CATCH UP ON THE COLONELS
Curry played to a 1-1 draw after a marathon double overtime contest versus New England Friday to move to 6-5-2 on the season.
Two Colonels have recorded double-digit points on the season with Kaitlyn Lima's 18 leading the way. The senior forward has a team-leading seven goals and four assists to her credit. Kelly Parker, meanwhile has 14 points on five goals and four handouts.
In net, Morgan Stott has received the call to start 12 games for the Colonels. The senior goalkeeper has allowed just 17 goals on the year for a 1.59 goals-against average and has made 64 stops for a .790 save percentage.
Curry is outscoring its opponents 26-21 and holds a 216-165 advantages in shots including a 138-103 edge on target.
Alexandra Nagri notched her second collegiate hat trick at Norwich Oct. 8. She is the second Ram to net three goals in one outing this season as Jennifer Martin put away four at Wheelock Sept. 7.
All four of the Rams' victories this season are shutouts. The four cleansheets in one year are the most since matching that number in 2013.
In the 9-0 victory Wednesday night at Wheelock, Suffolk poured in the most goals (9) since scoring 12 in a 12-0 shutout win over Anna Maria Oct. 24, 2012. The nine tallies are the fourth most goals all-time in the program's 10-year history, with the Rams' tallying nine goals on two other occasions, both 9-0 wins – Oct. 14, 2009 vs. Mass. Maritime and Oct. 13, 2010 vs. Newbury.
Jennifer Martin, who is the first Ram with a multi-goal game since Alexandra Nagri netted two in the season finale last season at Mount Ida, racked up four tallies in the 9-0 triumph at Wheelock Wednesday. Her offensive outpour, she ties the fourth-most goals in a single-game by a Ram and is the most goals by a Ram since Leslie Hayden and Lauren Cameron netted five and four, respectively at Anna Maria Oct. 10, 2011. The junior is also the first Ram to net a hat trick since Nagri did so in a 4-3 win at St. Joseph (Conn.) Sept. 19, 2015.
