ASTON -- Bek Lukas and Jackie Schneider scored two goals apiece to lead the host Neumann University women's ice hockey team to a 6-1 victory over visiting King's College Friday night at the Ice Works Arena in Aston.

With the win Neumann improved to 6-5-2 overall and 4-2-1 in United Collegiate Hockey Conference play. King's, meanwhile, slipped to 0-11-1 and 0-6-1.

Lukas scored first 5:02 into the game to give the Knights a 1-1 lead but King's tied the score when Indra Wood found the back of the net for the first time in her career off an assist by Kellie Munro at the 9:51 mark. Neumann would add two more goals to take a 3-1 lead after one period.

The Knights added three more goals in the second period to build a 6-1 lead after 40 minutes of play.  In the third period, King's continued to battle hard and kept Neumann off the boards while outshooting Neumann 11-8 in the final frame.
