Buffalo Believes Classic Recap – 12/28/2019 – Riveters v. Beauts

Metropolitan Riveters (4-7-0 8pts) v. Buffalo Beauts (6-5-1 13pts)

 

Game Recap:

In the first official regular season outdoor game in National Women’s Hockey League history, the Buffalo Beauts would play host to the Metropolitan Riveters in the Buffalo Believes Classic at Riverworks in Buffalo, NY. In the first period we would see a chippy one between both teams as we would see a total of six penalties in the period. The Riveters would strike first while at even strength with a Rebecca Morse tally to take the 1-0 lead. Then while on their first powerplay of the game Brooke Baker would tip a Mallory Rushton shot to take the 2-0 lead. The Beauts would go 0 for 3 on the powerplay, and will start the second period with their fourth powerplay still ongoing.

 

In the second period The Beauts would get themselves into penalty trouble again as the Riveters would get their second powerplay goal of the game as Madison Packer would net her seventh of the season to give the Riveters the 3-0 lead. The Beauts would give the Riveters three more powerplay opportunities, but no more goals would come of it.

 

In the third period both teams would start at 4 on 4 followed by an abbreviated Beauts powerplay. While the Beauts would not be able to capitalize on the powerplay Taylor Accursi would score to get the Beauts onto the board, but the Riveters would respond immediately with a Brook Avery tally to retake the three goal lead. However, Accursi would score three consecutive goals to get the hat trick, and unofficially a natural hat trick, to produce a four goal game and tie the game at four, but the Riveters would not sit back as Tatiana Shatalova, Madison Packer (second of the game) and Caily Hutchison (ENG) would all score to give the Riveters the exciting 7-4 victory.
