Two members of the William Smith College hockey team were honored by the United Collegiate Hockey Conference this afternoon. Senior forward Gina Scibetta was named the North Player of the Week and junior Olivia Williams was named the North Goalie of the Week.
Scibetta turned a record breaking weekend into her first UCHC praise of the season. She led the Herons with eight points on two goals and six assists in a 2-1-0 week. On Tuesday against Cortland, she set up both goals in a 4-2 loss. On Saturday, Scibetta recorded a career-high four assists guiding the Herons to a 9-1 victory over Alvernia. She set up three consecutive goals bridging the first and second periods. Scibetta’s fourth assist of the game was her 51st career assist and 91st career point. Both numbers eclipsed William Smith’s previous record held by Krista Federow ’18. On Sunday, Scibetta scored a pair of goals in a 6-0 victory over Stevenson. She was credited with game-winning goal and added an insurance goal in the third period. The goals were the 41st and 42nd of Scibetta’s career, which broke the program record of 40 also held by Federow.
Through 16 games this season, Scibetta leads the team with 19 points on six goals and 13 assists.
Williams played every minute in goal for the Herons this week, recording a 2-1-0 record with a .947 save percentage and a 1.69 goals against average. In Tuesday’s loss to the Red Dragons, Williams made 36 saves. On Saturday she made nine saves against the Golden Wolves. On Sunday, Williams stopped all 44 shots she faced as she recorded her second shutout of the season. Sunday’s win was the 25th of her career, which matches the program record held by Maggie Salmon ’18.
Williams is 8-5-0 this season with a 2.69 GAA and a .918 save percentage.
