Lindenwood’s women’s ice hockey team will be playing its next game on home ice against Robert Morris University.

This season started out slow for the team with a record of 2-5-1. After the last game with a win of 6-0, the team hopes to keep up this level of play, according to Lindenwood Athletics. Right now, sophomore Taylor Girard is leading the team with a total of six goals and five assists. In the team’s last home game, Taylor scored two goals against Mercyhurst University, which helped secure a 3-2 victory for the Lions.

Even though the Lions are 2-5-1, both of their wins have been in their conference. This is an indicator of how they will fare against other teams in the playoffs.

This is the first of a five-game home stretch in which they will play two games against Robert Morris University. Next, they have an exhibition game against Lindenwood University’s Belleville team. Finishing out the season this year, they have two games against the University of Minnesota.

Robert Morris University, who has a record of 5-1-2, will be at the Lindenwood Ice Arena in Wentzville on Nov. 3 at 6 p.m.
