Freshman Daryl Watts (right) is tied for first in the NCAA with 14 points.
Scoring certainly wasn’t at a premium in NCAA women’s hockey this past weekend. Our Stars of the Week made a habit of lighting the lamp in leading their teams to victory.
1.) Daryl Watts, Boston College
Daryl Watts (right) led the country in scoring with nine points in three games this week.
The Toronto, Ontario native piled up nine points (three goals, six assists), which was the most in the nation this week. The freshman forward four-point games against each in two victories this past week with a goal and three assists against Quinnipiac (1g, 3a) and another goal and three assists against Vermont. She also scored a goal in a 2-2 tie with UConn. After the weekend, she is tied for the national scoring lead with 14 points through five games.
McManus racked up five assists, including one that forced a game to overtime, where UNH eventually won.
The sophomore forward racked up eight points (3g, 5a) in a pair of wins over Vermont and Dartmouth. She scored twice and added an assist in a 5-4 overtime win against Vermont, including the game-tying goal with 12 seconds remaining in regulation to force overtime and then had a goal and four assists in a 6-1 victory over Dartmouth. On the season, the Milton, Massachusetts native has nine points on four goals and five assists.
Clarkson's freshman Giguere (center) already has seven goals in eight games this year.
The Quebec City, Quebec native continued the torrid start to her collegiate career by figuring in on seven of Clarkson’s 10 goals in the weekend sweep of nationally-ranked St. Lawrence. She scored the first two goals, including a highlight-reel tally with less than a second left in the opening period, in Friday’s 4-2 win over the Saints in Canton. Giguere followed that up with five points, on a goal and four assists, in Saturday’s 6-1 victory at Cheel Arena. On the season, the freshman forward has 14 points on seven goals and seven assists.
