The University Liggett girls’ hockey team beat previously unbeaten Port Huron 2-1 last weekend, improving to 3-1 in the Michigan Metro Girls High School Hockey League.

“We had our best game I’ve seen my teams play in my three years behind the bench,” head coach Cassie Jaeckle said. “We wore them out and I’m sure they will be ready to play us the next time we see them.”

Sophomore goalkeeper Olivia Portillo stymied the powerful Port Huron offense, limiting it to a season-low one goal.

Offensively, senior Danielle Lorant scored, assisted by junior Jena Pangborn, and freshman Riley Marchin tallied the game winner, assisted by senior Ania Dow.

Marchin is on a line with Dow and sophomore Allison Stapleton.

Earlier in the week, Liggett edged Northville 4-2 as freshman goalie Haley Malewicz made her debut and earned the win.

A good penalty-killing unit helped the Knights stave off the Mustangs’ upset bid. The Knights had seven penalties for 14 minutes and the Mustangs had only three penalties for six minutes.

Sophomore Gracie Scarfone led the way with two goals, while Lorant had a goal and an assist.

The other goal scorer was Marchin, and drawing assists were Stapleton, Dow and junior Maranda Saigh (two).
