No. 1 Cardinals Downs Lady Bears On Ice

POTSDAM, N.Y. - The SUNY Potsdam women's hockey team (8-9-1, 6-6-1 NEWHL) played host to the top team in the nation on Wednesday evening, falling to Plattsburgh State (19-1, 9-0 NEWHL) by a final score of 6-1. Junior forward Emily Burke (San Jose, Calif./San Jose Jr. Sharks) scored for the Bears. The Bears did well to generate offensive opportunities against one of the stingiest defenses in the country but were unable to solve Cardinals goalie Ashley Davis in the opening stanza. Bears senior goaltender Kayla McCabe (Watertown, N.Y./Syracuse Nationals) stood tall in net stopping 18 shots that came her way. The Cardinals were only able to capitalize on two of their scoring chances in the period. The first of the Plattsburgh goals came from Nicole Unsworth as she redirected a shot from the point by Sierra Benjamin through the legs of McCabe just over five minutes into the period. Taylor Whitney tallied the second assist. Just as it looked like the Bears would head to the locker room down by only one, Sara Krauseneck buried a rebound in front of the Bears net following a break away stop by McCabe on Abby Brush with just 25 seconds remaining. Annie Katonka also recorded an assist on the play. McCabe finished the night with 49 saves, with Davis recording 13 saves at the other end. The Bears hit the road this weekend for two key NEWHL contests. The Bears take on Buffalo State at 7 pm on Friday, then head to Oswego on Saturday for a 3 pm showdown with the Lakers.
