Roberts Joins Century Club in Split
12/13/2009 - 10:10 AM
Friday afternoon it was SCSU who struck first as Felicia Nelson netted her tenth goal of the season with a backhand move to beat Buckeye goaltender Chelsea Knapp. Ohio State would score two unanswered goals to make it a 2-1 hockey game before Nelson struck again, this time on the power play. The game would stay knotted up through overtime and Holly Roberts was the lone goal scorer in the shootout and Ashley Nixon turned away all three Buckeye shooters, giving the Huskies the win. Roberts assisted on both of Nelson’s goal so she would stand at 99 career points heading into game two.
Game two between the teams was a different story as it was the Buckeyes jumping out to the early lead. Hokey Langan took a loose puck in the crease and put it past Nixon to make it 1-0 OSU. Natalie Spooner would put Ohio State up 2-0 in the second period with a rebound goal. The Huskies fought back however as Felicia Nelson would net her third goal of the weekend on a laser pass from Roberts on a power play. The assist was Roberts’ 100th career point, becoming only the third Husky to reach the century mark.
