Freshman goalie Kallie Billadeau stuffs UNH during her first start in net.

The Syracuse women's goalie looked like a seasoned veteran in net during Friday night’s game against the No. 8 New Hampshire Wildcats. Kallie Billadeau stopped the puck with all parts of her body and in all situations, even as the Orange faced a 5-on-3 power play--and she did it all in her first collegiate start between the pipes.

The freshman goalie anchored the Syracuse defense en route to a 4-2 victory.  Billadeau’s teammates played well in front of her, but they also helped her mentally prepare for the game.
