MANCHESTER, N.H. (November 2, 2019) – The back end of weekend series sometimes have the tendency to be somewhat sleepy affairs in college hockey. Saturday afternoon’s contest at Sullivan Arena between the Franklin Pierce University women’s ice hockey team and Saint Anselm was anything but. The two teams were locked in a scoreless affair through two, as sophomore goaltender Emme Ostrander (Westborough, Mass.) and senior goaltender Michaela Kane showcased their skills at opposite ends of the ice. The squads then traded power-play goals in the middle of the third, before senior forward Amanda Conger potted a shorthanded game-winner 4:09 into overtime, as Saint Anselm pulled out a 2-1 win on home ice.

Coaching at the NCAA level is a tough job. Hours of film, practice prep, game prep, travel, and so much more to ensure your team is not only performing well, but also happy. While some coaches find one team to be enough, Brittany Fleck took on a nearly impossible job: coach two teams at one time. The Franklin Pierce University field hockey assistant coach volunteered to help out with the volleyball team as well, when a position opened up on the coaching staff this fall.
Streamers and balloons hung down from the entrance of the Fieldhouse. Posters lined the walls with quotes such as “Feel the Teal,” and “Cancer you picked the wrong girl.” The Franklin Pierce University volleyball team walked onto the court wearing teal and white shirts reading “Lindstrom Strong,” and donning teal ribbons in their hair. All of this in honor of Dawn Lindstrom, whose daughter, freshman Ingrid Lindstrom, plays for the Ravens.
