Buffalo State completes sweep of PSU Women’s Hockey

Davis scores lone goal for Panthers again 

            BUFFALO, N.Y. – Marissa McMullan (Haileybury, Ont.) tallied two goals and two assists Saturday afternoon as Buffalo State raced to a 7-1 victory to complete the weekend sweep of visiting Plymouth State University in a non-conference women’s ice hockey game at the Ice Arena.

            Bri Murphy (Depew, N.Y.) also scored twice for the Bengals, and Lauren Mallo (Maple Ridge, B.C.) addeda goal and two assists.  Kailyn Murray (Medicine Hat, Alb.) and Courtney Carnes (Winslow, Maine) chipped in a goal apiece, and Courtney Orner (Peoria, Ariz.) and Nicole Laurel (El Monte, Calif.) each collected a pair of assists.

            Junior Bri Davis (Framingham, Mass.), who tallied PSU’s only goal in Friday night’s 5-1 setback to the Bengals, scored her team-leading fourth of the season Saturday to account for all of the Panthers’ offense.

            The Bengals dominated play from the opening faceoff, outshooting Plymouth 11-0 in the opening period and 42-6 for the game.  After taking a 4-1 lead into the final period, Buffalo State blew the game open with three goals in a span of 2:17 early in the final frame.

            Buffalo State was 3-for-6 on the power play, while Plymouth went 1-for-3 with the extra attacker.  All three Buffalo State goaltenders saw time between the pipes.

            Both teams will break for final exams and the holidays.  PSU returns to action with a home game on Tuesday, Jan. 4, and both teams will skate in the Castleton (Vt.) Tournament on Jan. 7 and 8.
