DeGregory set up the first goal by Becca Halter ’17 at 16:54. The Cardinals managed a pair of goals to take a brief 2-1 lead. Skidmore ran off four straight goals to put the game away. Halter scored her second of the game at 35:00 from Sam Skott ’15, and DeGregory scored the next three goals. Sam Revera ’15 had the final goal late in the game.

Skidmore had a commanding 44-8 advantage in shots. Amy Beck ’15 stopped two shots in the net for the win.

DeGregory has thirty-two goals for the season, tying the program record set last season by Kelly Blackhurst ‘15. The talented forward has seven hat tricks this year: She has thirty-two goals and twelve assists for seventy-six points, three points off of the season total record of seventy-nine set last season by Blackhurst.

Skidmore, ranked 12th nationally, finishes the regular season with a 15-3 record. The team will try to continue their now eight-game win streak when they take on Vassar at home on Wednesday, November 5 at 2 p.m.
