Cortland skates past PSU Women’s Ice Hockey

            WATERVILLE VALLEY, N.H. - Freshman Shannon Hakes (Rochester, N.Y.) and sophomore Jeanna Dippel (Mechanicsburg, Pa.) scored two goals apiece Saturday afternoon to lead SUNY Cortland to an 8-0 victory over Plymouth State University in a non-conference women's ice hockey game at Waterville Valley Ice Arena.

            The Red Dragons took a 3-0 lead in the first period, made it 4-0 with a goal with two seconds remaining in the middle frame, and poured it on in the third period with four unanswered goals.  Cortland improves to 3-7-3 overall, while PSU drops to 0-9-0.

            Dippel finished with two goals and one assist to lead the visitors, while senior Erin Fleury (Glans Falls, N.Y.) and junior Heather Crowley (Brasher Falls, N.Y.) each contributed a goal and two assists.  Sophomore Maggie Henty (Syracuse, N.Y.) chipped in with a goal and an assist, and junior Maggie Welker (Rochester, N.Y.) also scored for Cortland.

            Freshman Briana Bartlett (Rome, N.Y.) needed to make only nine saves for Cortland to post her first career shutout.  PSU junior goalie Lindsay DeLorie (Holliston, Mass.) made 48 saves before giving way to freshman Lauren Bonanni (Ridgefield, Conn.), who made 11 saves over the final 11 minutes.

            PSU gets right back into action Sunday with an ECAC East game at Holy Cross (2:00 p.m.), while Cortland returns home to host Utica College in an ECAC West game on Tuesday (3:00 p.m.)
