Greely came out quick. Forty-eight seconds into the game, one of Greely’s big defenders stole a cross-ice pass and skated in the zone to rip a wrist shot into the top corner. Clippers answered with numerous shots on net led by Olivia Bradford (’22) and Sadie Carnes (’23), but they came up short.
Chloe White (’23) had many impressive rushes up ice which resulted in additional shots, but, again, Greely’s goaltender made the necessary saves.
Two minutes into the third period, a Greely player went coast-to-coast and finished to put them up 2-0. Still, our Clippers kept fighting and outshooting Greely almost 2 to 1 in the third. Eventually, the dynamic skating of Olivia Bradford (’22) got her to the goal and put Yarmouth on the board at 7:22.
It was all Clippers for the rest of the game, with numerous scoring chances, while Greely had resorted to icing the puck to avoid the pressure. Unfortunately, Yarmouth could not capitalize on their strong efforts and the final score remained 2-1 in Greely’s favor.
Coach Intraversato was quick to add, “We can’t worry about this one, there are plenty of games remaining and we had our chances. The goals will come and we need to stay patient. We are on to planning for Portland on Saturday.“
