PG Forward Lilly Derby Knocked Home the First Shamrocks Goal of the Game
The Boston Shamrocks concluded the Ontario Hockey Academy Thanksgiving University Showcase by topping the Burlington Jr. Barracudas 2-1 on Sunday morning for their third victory of the weekend. As with each of the previous wins in the north country, junior Sarah Wolf netted the game winner.
The Shamrocks opened the scoring early in the first period when PG forward Lilly Derby (Montgomery, NJ) found the back of the net with help from junior forward Katherine Reilly (Holbrooke, NY) and senior defenseman Savannah Harmon (Downers Grove, IL).
The Jr. Barracudas knotted the score late in the second period, but then took a penalty less than a minute later. The Shamrocks potted the go ahead goal by Wolf just 20 seconds into the man advantage. PG forward Sarah Robello (Las Vegas, NV) and senior forward Kate Kohl (Chelmsford, MA) also picked up points on the play.
Disciplined play throughout the game kept the Shamrocks out of the box, however, they were unable to take advantage of the numerous power play opportunities in the third period to build some breathing room. Solid play between the pipes by Kassi Abbott secured the win and a three and two record for the weekend.

Sophomore Forward Kathleen McHugh Scores Shamrocks First Goal of The Game
After a hard fought 1-0 loss to the Ottawa Jr. Senators in the morning the Boston Shamrocks came back to hand the Ontario Hockey Academy Mavericks a 3-1 loss at the Ontario Hockey Academy Thanksgiving University Showcase.
Sophomore forward Kathleen McHugh (Billerica, MA) kicked off the scoring with an unassisted tally with just over five minutes left in the first period. The Shamrocks extended their lead with only 23 seconds left in the period when New York native Sarah Wolf, with help from fellow Empire Stater Katherine Reilly and Garden Stater Lilly Derby, picked up her second goal and second game winner of the weekend.
Despite having the man advantage five times in the second the Shamrocks were unable to capitalize and extend their lead. However, the Mavericks were held at bay until there were just under six minutes left in the second period. The Shamrocks took their only two penalties of the game over the final four minutes, though the Mavericks would get no closer and the period ended at 2-1.
The Shamrocks doubled their lead to 3-1 five minutes into the third as Sarah Robello (Las Vegas, NV) buried the final strike of the game. Senior keeper Sabrina Dobbins (Bedford, NH) picked up her second win of the weekend.
The Shamrocks will play their fifth and final game of the OHA Thanksgiving University Showcase at 8:00 am Sunday morning at Clarkson University's Cheel Arena against the Burlington Jr. Barracudas.

Boston Shamrocks' alumnae Heather Schwarz Scores First Collegiate Goal
Boston Shamrocks' alumnae and Syracuse University Orange freshman Heather Schwarz tallied her first collegiate goal Tuesday night against the Colgate University Raiders in the very first Syracuse University women’s hockey home game ever televised, airing on the Time Warner Cable SportsChannel. Schwarz’s second period goal tied the game at 1-1.
Neither team was able to gain much of an advantage throughout the first period. Colgate took a 1-0 lead with 4:02 remaining in the second period. The Orange scored with just 13 seconds remaining in the period. Julie Knerr took a shot which led to a scrum in front of the Raiders goal. In the midst of Colgate defenders and SU players, the puck slid out, giving Schwarz enough room to get a shot off. Schwarz flicked it up and over traffic, scoring her first collegiate goal and tying the game at 1-1.
It was the final shot on goal that would eventually win the game. The Orange took a 2-1 lead with just 35 seconds remaining in the game, which wasn't enough time for Colgate to stop the SU victory.
Schwarz was also recently named College Hockey America (CHA) Rookie of the Week for her two game performance against Penn State. Schwarz recorded her first collegiate points against Penn State during the weekend, assisting on both of the game-winning goals as the Orange took two one-goal victories over Penn State. Schwarz was a plus-two for the weekend.
Schwarz scored 16 goals and handed out 10 assists for the Boston Shamrocks in 2012-13 for a total of 26 points and played in the JWHL All-Star game.
