A nine-game win streak and a fantastic record of 14-1-1 overall, the Lakers’ women’s hockey team is an unstoppable force.
After crushing Penn State University’s Nittany Lion’s 7-1 on Saturday, Dec. 1, the Lakers have improved their CHA (College Hockey America) conference record to 6-0-0.
With all of these statistics, it should come as no surprise that the Lakers have managed to maintain a 4th place national ranking for Division I women’s hockey.
In Saturday’s game against the Nittany Lions, sophomore Shelby Bram scored one goal and assisted in two others. With the goal, Bram has successfully scored in the last five games.
“It always feels great to contribute to the team in any way I can, especially when the team’s doing so well,” said Bram. “I’m fortunate enough to be on a successful team, surrounded by great players.”
The Lakers have plenty of goals to reach this season.
“We always set team goals at the start of the year; our ultimate goal being to win a Frozen Four. Unfortunately, our league doesn’t get an automatic bid into the tournament, so in order to achieve our goal we need to ensure we stay highly ranked,” Bram said.
The Lakers have come together and worked hard all season, and the success they are having is backed by strong support all around.
“I believe the success that we have had as a team so far this season is a demonstration everyone on the team, including our coaching staff’s belief in the team and what we can do,” said Bram. “We are winning and having lots of fun, and when you’re winning and having fun, everything else comes easy.”
The Lakers will travel to Pittsburgh to face Robert Morris University on Friday, Dec. 7, and Saturday, Dec. 8.
