The No. 1 Ohio State women’s hockey team extended its win streak to 13 games with two victories on its home ice over No. 6 St. Lawrence.

In the first game on Nov. 24, the Buckeyes scored 11 goals which is a program record, breaking the record set Jan. 8, 2022, when they scored 10 against Lindenwood. Against St. Lawrence they scored seven goals in the second period, tying another program record.

Sixteen out of the Buckeyes 18 skaters on the roster recorded a point in the game with Makenna Webster, Jocelyn Amos and Kelsey King each recording two goals. Raygan King recorded her third shutout of the season in the team’s record-setting performance.

They followed that up with a 5-1 win the next day. Webster and Amos scored again for Ohio State along with goals from Jenna Buglioni, Jennifer Gardiner and Joy Dunne. Gardiner extended a streak of having a point in a game to 10 straight against the Saints.

The Buckeyes still dominated the game as much as they did the day before despite not scoring as much, only allowing nine shots on goal, eight saved by Amanda Thiele. The goalkeeper for St. Lawrence, Emma-Sofie Nordstrom faced 41 shots and had 36 saves.

Ohio State will look for its 14th straight when it gets back in action on its home ice Friday Dec. 4 against conference opponent, No. 9 St. Cloud State for a two-game series.

Women’s Volleyball Season Ends

In a season which the Buckeyes began with new players covering much of the roster after losing a large amount of graduates and transfers that were on the 2022 team that made a run, they were unable to capture the same magic, finishing with an 11-18 record. Their last match was at the Covelli Center, which they won over Rutgers 3-1, taking three straight sets after losing the first.

Emily Londot led the team with 546 kills which brings her up to 1,718 in her career, fourth all time in program history. Freshman Mia Tuman had a team-leading 963 assists.

The NCAA Tournament begins Thursday, Nov. 30, but the Buckeyes weren’t able to make it in for the first time since the 2019 season in which they went 15-17 and finished 8th in the Big Ten. This year they were 10th in the conference ahead of Maryland, Michigan, Rutgers and Iowa.
