ORONO, Maine - A hat trick from senior Camille Dumais and two goals from classmate Reagan Fischer helped the Dartmouth women's hockey team to a 6-1 rout of Maine Saturday afternoon at Alfond Arena.
Dumais registered her third-career hat trick as she netted one in the first period and two in the third. She also matched her career high with four points, assisting on another goal during the matinee match-up.
Classmate Reagan Fischer scored twice and assisted on two of Dumais' three tallies to match her linemate with four points in the winning effort. It marked the fourth time in her career that she notched four points in a contest.
After a 0-2-1 stretch coming into the game, it was a total-team effort Saturday afternoon in Maine as the Big Green outshot their opponent, 61-15; the most shots by a Dartmouth team since Jan. 28 of last season when it had 52 in a 6-0 victory at Yale.
The win pushed the Big Green back over the .500 mark to 5-4-2 overall this season, while the hosts from Orono fall to 2-11-1 with the loss.
Fischer made it 1-0 just seven minutes into the game before Dumais sent the teams into the first intermission separated by two with her first of the day with just six seconds left in the opening stanza.
Freshman Laura Stacey scored her third of the year 2:08 into the middle frame and was quickly followed by another Fischer marker two and a half minutes later, her third in the last two games and eighth of the season.
Dumais' second made it 5-0 with 7:21 remaining in the third and all but sealed the win for the Big Green.
The Black Bears' Brittany Dougherty erased Dartmouth goaltender Lindsay Holdcroft's bid at a shutout with the home team's lone goal at the 17:59 mark of the third period. However, Dumais wasn't finished and helped regain her team's five-goal advantage with the hat trick score with 32 seconds left.
Holdcroft finished with 14 saves to notch her fourth win of 2012-13. At the other end of the ice, Maine's Brittany Ott had the unenviable task of facing Dartmouth's suddenly potent offensive attack, having to turn aside 55 shots in the loss.
The Big Green dominated nearly ever facet of the contest, outshooting the Black Bears, 27-4, in the second, while also holding them to 0-for-3 on the power play in the game. A disciplined Dartmouth squad was whistled for just three minor penalties on the afternoon.
These same two teams will wrap-up a weekend series on Sunday with another 3 p.m. tilt at Alfond Arena, the final game before the winter break for the Green and White.
