GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL HOCKEY:
CANTON 3 POTSDAM 2
Parity may be the watchword in the Upstate New York Girls Hockey
League this season as Potsdam and Canton continued a trend of close games so
far this year in action on Wednesday night at Pine St. Arena.
Potsdam tied the game at 2-2 with just 33 seconds left in regulation on an
Abby Adams deflection of an Abby Scott pass from the corner.
But Canton claimed a 3-2 win just 38 seconds into sudden-victory overtime as
Mackenzie Lennox completed the hat trick, picking up Michelle Varney¹s
rebound and lifting the puck home with Alison Edwards also assisting.
I told our team that we¹re all pretty even right now and this is the way
our games are going to be. We knew it would be tight tonight, said Potsdam
coach Joe Stark.
About three-quarters of our team are new this year. But we¹re making
progress. We didn¹t play badly tonight. We worked hard and threw pucks at
the net. But we don¹t have too many proficient scorers at this point.²
Courtney Baxter connected from Adams early in the first period for Potsdam
before Lennox backhanded in the first ofher three markers, with Michelle
Varney and Murphy Newman assisting, late in the period to make it 1-1 after
After a scoreless second period, Lennox gave the Lady Bears their first lead
at 4:19 of the third, scoring under the crossbar on a partial breakaway set
up by Jess Denoncourt.
Samantha Brown finished with 20 saves in goal for Canton while Abby Tardelli
made 18 stops for Potsdam.
³We never stopped going hard in the third period, and after we hit a speed
bump at the end, we kept pushing. We crashed the net and put one away in
overtime,² said Canton coach Christen Powers.
Also Wednesday, it was Massena upending Salmon River 3-2.
MASSENA 3 SALMON RIVER 2
At Fort Covington, Massena beat Salmon for the
first time ever. This is a big win for us and we hope to keep the momentum going this
weekend, said Massena coach Jen Gray whose team will host Skaneateles on
Friday at 7 p.m.
Last night, Salmon¹s Savannah Francis opened the scoring just 12 seconds
into the game from Krista Oakes. But the Lady Raiders tallied three
unanswered. Emily Underwood scored unassisted and Laura Gonzalez connected
from Shaydi Oakes in the first period before Courtney Manley scored the lone
goal of the second frame from Underwood and Emily Babcock.
In the third period, Tia Mitchell scored from Oakes and Karley Cree to draw
Salmon to within one, but that¹s the way it ended.
