The No. 1 Plattsburgh State women’s hockey team claimed its sixth title in eight years at Norwich University’s 10th annual East/West Hockey Classic with a 4-1 win over the No. 5 Adrian College Bulldogs. In a tight affair that saw Adrian lead shots on goal 33-30, the Cardinals claimed victory with the first four goals of the contest.

Plattsburgh scored the only goal of the first period, as Taylor Whitney picked up the rebound from an Ivy Boric shot and slid the puck behind Adrian's goaltender Denisa Janodvá, getting knocked to the ice as her shot barely crossed the goal line.

The Cardinals extended their lead with two goals in the span of 40 seconds in the second period, as Abby Brush knocked home the rebound of an Erin McArdle shot and Madison walker scored on a 2-on-1 rush with Kaitlin Drew-Mead. Sierra Benjamin, who claimed the tournament’s MVP award, recorded assists on both goals.

Plattsburgh State began the third period with a power-play after Adrian’s Kelly O’Sullivan was called for body checking in the final moments of the second, and Benjamin capitalized on the opportunity with a hard shot from the left faceoff circle. After her first goal of the season, Benjamin showed her emotions by dabbing before skating to the bench.

Adrian’s Une Bjelland picked up on a loose puck in front of the Plattsburgh net to get the Bulldogs on the board, but the Cardinals held on to the 4-1 lead and skated to the title.

Ashley Davis, starting in net for the Cardinals for the second straight game, made a career-high 32 saves, while Jandová recorded 26 saves of her own.

Potsdam's Karley Green (12 breaks in front of Plattsburgh's Ava Juilan for the goal. The Plattsburgh High School girls’ hockey team suffered a 3-2 non-conference loss at home Jan. 3 against Potsdam. The game began well for the Lady Hornets, who built a 2-0 lead in the first period off goals from Amanda Vaughn and Avery Holland. The remainder of the game was an effort to maintain that lead, unsuccessfully. The Sandstoners got on the board at the 11-minute mark of the second period, as the Hornets turned the puck over at the offensive blue line, and two Plattsburgh defensemen collided with one another to send Potsdam freshman Kennedy Emerson on a breakaway. That would be the theme of the third period, as Potsdam junior Karley Green beat Plattsburgh goaltender Ava Julian on a breakaway of her own at the 10:03 mark to tie the contest. With the game seemingly destined for overtime, the Sandstoners showed they had other ideas. A breakout pass from Green found Emerson, who blew past the Hornets’ defense in the neutral zone and deked around Julian in the crease to tap the puck in on the backhand. With Emerson’s second tally coming with only 17 seconds remaining, the Lady Hornets were unable to overcome the deficit and lost a game they had led 2-0 at the halfway mark.
