LEWISTON — Junior right wing Myriam Croussette scored a pair of goals and sophomore center Brittany Dougherty scored the game-winner with 11 seconds left in the second period Tuesday night as Maine snapped a 28-game winless streak at the hands of the Wildcats, 4-1, in front of 334 at the Colisee.

On Jan. 20, 2002, Cindy Biron’s goal with 1:30 left in the third period gave the University of Maine’s women’s ice hockey team a 2-1 win over New Hampshire.

It was the the only time Maine had beaten UNH in 34 meetings (30-1-3) entering Tuesday night’s game at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee.

Croussette staked Maine to a 1-0 lead with a power play goal 3:28 into the first period. Melissa Gagnon and Chloe Tinkler picked up assists. It was her fifth goal of the season.

UNH freshman center Arielle O’Neill equalized with her seventh off a Kristina Lavoie assist while UNH was shorthanded at the 19:19 mark of the period.

Dougherty broke the tie with her eighth. It was an unassisted goal.

Croussette expanded the lead just 44 seconds into the third period with Jennie Gallo and Brianne Kilgour notching assists.
