EYES ON THE GAME
Suffolk strung together its fourth straight win Saturday, marking the longest win streak since Oct. 1-10, 2011.
Six of the Rams' victories this season are shutouts. The six cleansheets in one year are the most since recording eight in 2011.
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.
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.
