NWHL Game Recap – 10/5/2019 – Boston Pride v. Metropolitan Riveters

Boston Pride (0-0-0 0pts) v. Metropolitan Riveters (0-0-0 0pts)

 

Game Recap:

The Metropolitan Riveters kick off their 2019-20 NWHL season as they host the Boston Pride in their home opener. The Riveters would start out by getting a few shots, but nothing difficult for rookie goaltender Lovisa Selander. Then Cassie Dunne would be called for tripping to give the Pride their first powerplay opportunity, and while they would not score, the Pride would use it to turn the tide and put the momentum on their side. The Pride would take it to the Riveters but Sam Walther was up to the task. However, late in the first period Jillian Dempsey would get one past Walther to give the Pride a late 1-0 lead to go into the first intermission with.

 

In the second period the Riveters would play with some more hustle in their game, and it would almost pay off early in the period as Bulbul Kartanbay would almost get the puck past Selander but a little puck luck was on the goalie’s side. However, that would not deter the Riveters as Kendall Cornine would score moments later to tie the game at one a piece. The Pride would force another penalty against the Riveters, but would be unsuccessful for a third consecutive time.

 

In the third period it would be a penalty filled affair as the Riveters would have two 5 on 3 powerplay opportunities while the Pride would only have one of their own. The Riveters would convert on the back end of their first two woman advantage as Madison Packer would tip in a Colleen Murphy point blast to take the 2-1 lead. However, the Riveters would begin to falter and the Pride would pounce as they would get goals from Tori Sullivan, Dempsey (her second of the game), and McKenna Brand to lead the Pride to a 4-2 victory to start their season.
