Modzelewski Earns Second Career Shutout in 4-0 Victory Over SUNY Canton

REISTERSTOWN, Md. - Stevenson women's ice hockey sophomore Sarah Modzelewski made 15 saves while sophomore McKenzie Taggart scored twice to lead the Mustangs to their second win in as many games this season as they posted a 4-0 shutout over SUNY Canton Sunday night at Reisterstown Sportsplex.

Stevenson (2-0) has now won back-to-back home games after going 0-7-1 a year ago.

Modzelewski earned tonight's first star after posting her fourth career win and improving her record to 4-6 in 10 career starts. She now owns both shutouts in school history as she made 29 saves in a 1-0 victory at SUNY Oswego on Jan. 27, 2012.

Tonight's second star, Taggart finished with a career-high three points, posting her first career multi-goal game with two goals and one assist. She has now scored at least one point in five of the team's last six games dating back to last season. During that time, she has totaled seven points, including five goals.

Sophomore Molly O'Neil finished with a career-high three points as well, adding a goal and two assists, to earn tonight's third star. She also had a goal and two assists at Sacred Heart on Nov. 16, 2012.

O'Neil scored what proved to be the game-winner just 4:53 into the first period off assists from Taggart and sophomore Emma Sunness who picked up her second career point. Sunness leads the team with a plus-3 rating this season.

Sophomore Megan Donahue scored her first of the season and the fourth of her career on a wrap around in the second before Taggart added two third-period tallies, the last of which was short-handed off an assist from O'Neil.

Taggart's first goal came on the power play with 17:58 remaining in the third off assists from O'Neil and sophomore Jessie Capanelli. The Mustangs have already scored four power play goals this season after totaling just nine in 22 games a year ago.

Stevenson travels to Sacred Heart next Saturday, November 9 before hosting the Pioneers for two games at home beginning November 15.
