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.
