Senior forwards Christine Bestland and Christie Cicero scored two goals apiece and Kaleigh Chippy added a goal and assist to lead the Mercyhurst women’s hockey team to a season-opening 6-2 exhibition win against Western Ontario in front of 300 fans at Mercyhurst Ice Center on Saturday night.
Cicero snapped a scoreless tie with a pair of goals less than six minutes apart in the second period. UWO sliced the Lakers’ lead in half twice in the period, only to have Bestland regain two-goal leads with her two scores. Freshman Jillian Skinner scored the other goal for the Lakers, which built a 53-15 advantage in shots.
