Plattsburgh State's defenseman Emma Killeen (28) unleashes a shot from the right faceoff circle toward Middlebury goaltender Lin Han.The Plattsburgh State women’s ice hockey team avenged its only loss so far this season with a 4-1 victory over the Middlebury Panthers Tuesday at the Ronald B. Stafford Ice Arena. The No. 1 Cardinals entered the contest on a nine-game winning streak since losing in the final of the Panther/Cardinal Classic Dec. 1, while the No. 2 Panthers boasted an undefeated 10-0-2 record. Plattsburgh had to weather a storm early on, as Middlebury maintained offensive zone possession for nearly all of the first eight minutes of the game. A strong defensive performance by the team, including several blocked shots, meant that this territorial advantage resulted in only one shot on goal for the Panthers. Momentum swung in favor of the Cardinals at the 8:01 mark, when Middlebury defenseman Anna Zumwinkle was called for body checking. Reigning NEWHL player of the week Sara Krauseneck took advantage, putting a shot from just above the goal line behind the far post. Plattsburgh scored the eventual game-winner in the final minute of the first period when Madison Walker won the quick battle for a rebound in the slot and passed it to a wide-open Nicole Unsworth, putting Middlebury goaltender Lin Han out of position and unable to make another save. The only goal of the second period came at the 18:02 mark after Han made a spectacular shoulder save on a goal-bound shot from the high slot by Kaitlin Drew-Mead. As the Middlebury defense scrambled to clear the rebound, the puck found its way to Drew-Mead. She passed it to Walker, who hit the top glove-side corner with a quick wrist shot. A penalty in the dying seconds of the second period gave Middlebury a powerplay entering the final frame, and Eva Hendrickson scored her first of the season to get the Panthers on the board, but the Cardinals’ advantage was too much. Unsworth capped off the night with an unassisted empty-netter after forcing the turnover at the blue line and skating the puck up the ice herself. Han made 30 saves in the losing effort, while Plattsburgh’s Ashley Davis stopped 21 of the 22 shots she faced on the evening. Gallery

Plattsburgh State goaltender Ashley Davis (1) makes a save on a penalty shot attempt by Norwich’s Ann-Frederique Guay in the Cardinals’ 6-3 win at Norwich University. The No. 1 Plattsburgh State women’s hockey team kicked off its second semester of action with a 6-3 win over No. 3 Norwich Sunday in the first round of the 10th annual East/West Hockey Classic at Kreitzberg Arena.

The host team got on the board early, with a goal by Amanda Conway extending her program-record career tally. While a Taylor Whitney goal late in the first period tied the game 1-1 for the Cardinals, the Cadets regained their lead only 19 seconds later off the stick of senior Sophie MCGovern, and that 2-1 margin stood into the first intermission.

The defending national champions wrested back control of the contest in the second frame, scoring three goals within 61 seconds. The Cardinals’ Madison Walker tied the goal at the 9:18 mark of the second period, and Abby Brush scored the go-ahead tally at 9:57.

The visitors capped off the flurry of goals at 10:57 with a backhanded shot from Nicole Unsworth, taking advantage of a Norwich turnover in the defensive zone.

The Cardinals earned extra insurance with powerplay goals from Sara Krauseneck and Ivy Boric in the third period before Norwich’s Brynn Wopperer scored the third goal for the Cadets.

Ashley David made 29 saves in net for the Cardinals, including a stop on an Ann-Frederique Guay penalty shot. With the win, Plattsburgh State advanced to take on the Bulldogs of Adrian College Gallery
