Warrior women take 3 of 4 from Cornell

The Wayne State women took three of four points from Cornell over the weekend at the City Sports Arena on Detroit's east side.

Saturday, WSU junior defenseman Kristi Thome started the scoring 3:28 into the contest when her blueline shot found the back of the net during a Warrior power play. Thome's first of the year was assisted by junior blueliner Sarah Campbell and junior wing Emily McGrath-Agg.

Freshman Ashley King increased WSU's lead at the 12:58 mark with her fifth goal of the season. King stole the puck behind the Cornell cage, and after her first shot was stopped by Big Red goalie Flora Vineberg, King stuffed in the rebound.

The Warriors, however, could not hold the lead and had to settle for the 2-2 tie. Goalie Val Turcotte finished with 18 saves.

But on Sunday afternoon, WSU got an early lead and held on all game en route to a 5-0 blanking. Sophomore Laura Monk had two goals and an assist to back Tina Thibideau and Tiffany Thompson's 13 saves. King, Kristy Leng and Nicole Stahl also scored for WSU (5-6-3).

The Warriors will get a chance to improve on their 2-1-1 home record when the Bemidji State Beavers visit this Friday (7:05 p.m.) and Saturday (2:05 p.m.) for a two-game non-league series.
