David's 3 goals Powers Clarkson Ladies' Win

POTSDAM - Freshman Gabrielle David (Drummondville, QUE) capped off her first collegiate hat trick with the overtime game-winner as 4th-ranked Clarkson University pull out a 6-5 road victory at 10th-ranked Robert Morris on Saturday afternoon.

Clarkson, which skated to a 3-3 tie with the Colonials on Friday night, improves to 4-1-1. The Golden Knights will return home to Cheel Arena this coming weekend with a two-game set against Lindenwood University.

The Knights' top line of left wing David (3-1), senior center Michaela Pejzlova (Pardubice, Czech Rep.) (1-4) and junior right wing Elizabeth Giguere (Quebec City, QUE) (1-4) accounted for 14 of Clarkson's 16 points.

In a game full of specialty-team goals, Clarkson was 2-of-5 on the power play, while Robert Morris went 3-of-6 with the man-advantage along with netting a shorthanded marker.

The non-league contest was full of momentum swings as the two nationally ranked teams exchanged leads several times.

Clarkson took a 4-3 lead into the third period, but Robert Morris got a power-play tally from Emily Curlett at 2:15 and a shorthanded marker from Jaycee Gebhard at 13:06 to take a 5-4 lead with less than seven minutes to play.

A two-time All-American, who has scored her share of big goals for Clarkson, Giguere evened the game at 5-5 with an extra-attacker goal with 43 seconds remaining in regulation, setting the stage for David's heroics.

With 17 seconds left in the five-minute extra session, David finished off a passing combination from Giguere and Pejzlova for the game-winner.

Just six games into her rookie season, David has already made a big impact on the Green and Gold lineup with 10 points on three goals and seven assists.

The Knights started fast in the contest, jumping out to a 2-0 lead before the game was 10 minutes old. David netted her first career goal at 4:17, followed by classmate, defenseman Lauren Bernard's first career goal at 9:09.

The Colonials then answered back with a pair of scores late in the period from Maggy Burbidge and Michaela Boyle, on the man-advantage, to make it 2-2 through 20 minutes.

Curlett scored her first of the day, a power-play marker at 3:09 of the middle frame to put the home team in front for the first time.

David and Pejzlova responded with power-play tallies at 10:26 and 12:04, respectively to put the Knights back on top, 4-3 after two periods.

Clarkson held a 27-21 shot advantage.

Junior Amanda Zeglen (Calgary, ALB) started in goal for the Knights and posted eight saves on 11 shots through 23:09 of action. Sophomore Marie-Pier Coulombe (Carignan, QUE) came on in relief, turning aside eight of 11 shots to pick up the win.
