Special Teams for the Win

Westminster was happy to be back in Jackson Rink tonight to face off against a talented Millbrook team. The Martlets were flying from the start, and managed to draw a penalty within the first five minutes. The power play earned possession off the face off and moved the puck seamlessly as Abby Munger '20 sent a pass to Sam DeLeo '21 at the top of the zone who then quickly saw Taylor Adams '20 on the back door. Adams one-timed the pass and beat the goalie high for the 1-0 lead. Millbrook worked to match Westminster's tempo by the end of the period and the Martlets knew they'd have to step up their game to maintain the lead. In the first minute of the second period, Millbrook took another penalty. The power play had to battle for possession against a pressing Millbrook penalty kill. DeLeo managed to gain possession and moved it to Megan Rittenhouse '20 on the half-wall. Rittenhouse sent a laser pass across ice to Adams who one-timed it on the backdoor for the 2-0 lead. Westminster continued to pressure, but Millbrook made good use of the offensive zone time it did get, forcing Kayla Ireland '22 to make some good saves to protect the lead. Then with just 30 seconds left, Westminster went on the attack at Rittenhouse found a breaking Jenny Guider '20 who took a shot that was blocked by the far pad of the Millbrook goalie. Adams was there to collect and then put home the rebound for her third goal of the game and second hat-trick of the week. The third period got a bit chaotic with penalties, but Westminster maintained focus and earned a 5-on-3 halfway through. Munger stole the puck and came off the wall for a shot that deflected off the goalie and in for the 4-0 lead. It was a solid win for the Martlets and a good way to build their grit against a good team. It will be good prep as the team prepares to take on Hotchkiss this weekend.
