The Northbrook, Illinois, native led the entire NCAA with seven points and five assists in two games to help the Terriers sweep RIT. The sophomore’s weekend was highlighted by a career-high five-point outing on Saturday, including a career-best four assists in an 8-0 win. Four of her five helpers at RIT were primary assists, the most in the NCAA last week, while she also assisted on Friday’s game-winning goal in BU’s 3-1 win. Compher enters the semester break on a 13-game point streak (10g, 19a). Her 19 assists and 29 points in that 13-game span leads the entire country.

The senior tri-captain continued to surge this past weekend against Syracuse. She had the final two goals against the Orange Thursday to seal a 5-2 victory. Saturday, she had her first career four-point game, as she had three assists and tallied an unassisted shorthanded goal, which turned out to be the game-winner. With the goal, she reclaimed her program lead in game-winning goals with 15. She is also now just nine points behind Sam Hunt for the program's all-time Division I scoring record. The Barrie, Ontario native currently has 132 career points. 

3 - Samantha Ridgewell, Merrimack

In her only appearance of the weekend, the Outlook, Saskatchewan turned in a career-high 51-save performance in a 1-0 win against No. 9 Boston College on Saturday. The senior netminder helped Merrimack to its first career shutout of the Eagles and ended a three-game skid for the Warriors. She became just the second netminder in the nation to secure a victory with 50-plus saves this season. On the season, she has four shutouts, a 1.61 goals-against average and a .943 save percentage.
