The Oswego State women’s ice hockey team defeated New England College 5-0 in their season opener on Friday.
Early in the first period, freshman Katie Mlostek made her presence known as she tallied her first career goal to put the Lakers on the board. Just under a minute later, yet another Laker scored their first career goal as Monica Cramer scored on the power play after being assisted by Kate Randazzo. Cramer would finish the game with two goals and an assist while Randazzo tallied four assists. However, the highlight of the contest came off the stick of Oswego State’s captain, Olivia Ellis, who was able to weave through three defenders for a backhanded goal.
Mariah Madrigal earned the shutout for the Lakers to go along with seven saves. On the offensive side of the puck, Oswego State outshot New England College 58 to 7.
The Lakers will look to continue their momentum when they take on Castleton during their Teal Game today at 3:00 pm.
