The William Smith College ice hockey team was edged by the University of Southern Maine 1-0 in a New England Hockey Conference contest at The Cooler this evening. The Herons are now 2-3-0 overall this season with a 2-1-0 mark in conference play.

Annie Hauser played just over 59 minutes in goal. She made 23 saves.

Jess MacLean scored for the Huskies (3-2-0, 1-0-0). Haley McKim made 40 saves as she earned the shutout.


  • William Smith finished the game with a 40-24 advantage in shots on goal.
  • Neither team scored a power-play goal. William Smith was 0-for-3 with the extra attacker and Southern Maine was 0-for-1.
  • Four of the six meetings between the Herons and Huskies have been decided by one goal.


  • MacLean had the game’s lone goal at the 4:10 mark of the first period. She fired a shot from the point through traffic and past Hauser. Her first goal of the season was assisted by Oliva Stewart and Saige MacLeod.


  • Late in the first period, Annabel Ziskin ripped a shot that cleanly beat McKim but hit the left goalpost.
  • In the third period, the Herons pushed for the equalizer, but could not solve McKim. The Herons peppered the Husky goalie with 17 shots in the final frame.
  • Ziskin and Kelly Howe had a chance in the final 15 seconds stopped by McKim.
  • Right before the final horn, Elizabeth MacMurray had a stuff attempt turned aside by the goalie.

William Smith will be back in action tomorrow, Nov. 11, when it welcomes Salem State to The Cooler. Faceoff is scheduled for 4 p.m.
