Robert Morris skated into Lynah Rink on Friday having already played six games, and touting a top-10 national ranking.

None of that seemed to matter to No. 5 Cornell women’s hockey in its first game of the 2019-20 season, as the Red dominated the Colonials, 6-0, in the first game of the teams’ weekend series.

Senior defenseman Jaime Bourbonnais and sophomore forward Gillis Frechette each had four-point nights. Junior forward Maddie Mills — the team’s leading scorer last season — scored two goals and was one of five goal-scorers.

Junior Lindsay Browning made 19 saves to earn the shutout, and the Cornell penalty kill was a perfect 7-for-7.

Check back after Saturday’s game for a full recap of the weekend series.
