Vermont outshot Siena 45-25 but sophomore goalie Kristin Concordia made a career-high 21 saves as Siena held off the Catamounts 14-11 Wednesday afternoon in Burlington. This marks Siena's first ever win against Vermont. Junior Caitlin Mikel led all players with seven points on five goals and two assists.
This is Siena's second bounce back win of the season after suffering a big loss. The Saints defeated Wagner 12-10 after losing at Boston College 20-5 and won today after losing to cross-town rival UAlbany 18-2 last Friday.
Siena (4-2) led Vermont (1-4) 12-6 midway through the second half, but Vermont scored five of the next six goals in a nine-minute span to cut the deficit to 13-11.
The Catamounts took six shots in the final eight minutes, but couldn't break through. Concordia saved two shots and another hit the post.
Erin Hepper and Michelle Andreo each tallied three points for the Saints while freshman Casey Harkins scored her first collegiate goal.
Vermont only scored on 2-of-10 free-position shots.
The Saints return to action on Sunday when they play at St. Bonaventure.
