Notes: Southern New Hampshire has won two straight following its 20-11 victory over Bridgeport at Disney's ESPN Wide World of Sports on Tuesday ... the Penmen led most of the way, but Bridgeport pulled to within 12-10 midway through the second half when SNHU outscored the visitors, 8-1, over the final 12 minutes to secure the victory ... freshman Kelsey Long (Woburn, Mass.) recorded a career-best nine points, as she reached career highs in both goals (6) and assists (3) ... classmate Hayle Ashford (Atkinson, N.H.), in her second career start, submitted her best performance, turning away 13 of the 24 shots she faced ... senior Alexis Felt (Manchester, N.H.) notched six points on five goals and an assist ... fellow senior Kristin Wilder (Framingham, Mass.) and freshman Catherine Derhak (Londonderry, N.H.) each added three goals and an assist ... junior Merry Harrington (Peabody, Mass.) tallied three points on two goals and an assist ... Wilder, who is now two goals away from becoming the first 200-goal scorer in program history, is also just 21 points shy of that all-time record, as well.

Notes: Adelphi remained perfect with a 16-5 victory at Saint Michael's on Wednesday ... the Panthers fell behind, 2-0, in the game's opening minute and then scored nine straight to build a 9-2 halftime lead, before cruising in the second half ... junior Allison Johnson led the way with 11 points on five goals and six assists ... sophomore Christina Ferrara notched five points with a goal and four helpers, while senior Lena Riportella scored four times ... junior Alyssa Gillespie and redshirt-freshman Christina McCabe each found the back of the net twice ... sophomore goalkeeper Emma Lemanski stopped five of the 10 shots she saw.
