Clarkson Loses to Rival Saint Lawrence

For the first time in seven meetings, the Clarkson University Women's Hockey team lost to rival St. Lawrence, falling 2-1 on Friday night.
 
Clarkson is now 2-1-0 on the season while the Saints improve to 3-0-0.
 
Neither team was able to score in the first period and so Loren Gabel's goal just 2:37 into the second period opened the scoring and gave the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead. Amanda Titus and Genevieve Bannonhad the assists on Gabel's goal. Bannon's assist was her 100th career point and she becomes the 12th Clarkson player to reach the milestone.
 
St. Lawrence answered with two consecutive power-play goals. First, Brooke Webster scored off a pass from Kennedy Marchment at 5:42. Less than a minute later, at 6:14, Marchment assisted Kirsten Padalis who scored to give the Saints the lead.
 
Clarkson tried to score a second goal to tie the game, but the Golden Knights' 10 shots in the final period were all saved by St. Lawrence goaltender Grace Harrison.
 
St. Lawrence finished with a 26-19 edge in shots. The Saints converted two of their seven man-advantage opportunities while Clarkson failed to score on all eight of its power-plays. Shea Tiley made 24 stops for Clarkson while Harrison finished with 18 for St. Lawrence.
 
Clarkson will immediately have a chance to avenge the loss as the two teams return to Potsdam for a 3:00 pm game on Saturday afternoon. Clarkson will be trying to extend an 11 game undefeated streak against St. Lawrence in Cheel Arena.
