Notes: Southern New Hampshire will open up its home slate looking for its first win of the season, following an 18-12 loss at 10th-ranked Mercy last Saturday ... the Penmen were within 7-6 with just over 12 minutes left in the opening half, but Mercy scored three-in-a-row to take a four-goal lead to the break and then cruised in the second half ... senior Kristin Wilder (Framingham, Mass.) scored three goals to become the program's all-time goals leader, breaking the record of Emily Mongeau, who scored 190 goals for the Penmen from 2009-12 ... fellow senior Alexis Felt (Manchester, N.H.) matched Wilder's output with three goals and an assist ... junior Merry Harrington (Peabody, Mass.) also potted three goals ... senior Leah Olansky (Bennington, Vt.) stopped three shots over the opening 32:26, while freshman Hayle Ashford (Atkinson, N.H.) turned away six of the 12 shots that came her way in the final 27:34.

Notes: Dominican (N.Y.) will open its season against SNHU after having its initial season opener with Bridgeport on March 1 postponed, and then its game Wednesday at St. Thomas Aquinas also postponed ... the Chargers are coming off a season in which they finished 6-10, overall, including 5-4 in the CACC, before falling, 18-16, in the conference quarterfinals ... Dominican returns 89 percent of its scoring from a year ago, including its top three leading scorers and five of its top six ... the team does not have a goalkeeper on its roster with any collegiate experience, however ... the Chargers were picked sixth in the CACC Preseason Coaches' Poll for the 10-team league.
