The Oswego State women’s hockey team lost to the Buffalo State Bengals by a score of 2-1 on Sunday. With the loss, the Lakers drop to 3-2 on the season and 1-1 in the NEWHL while the Bengals move to 2-4 with a 2-2 conference record.
Throughout the game, the Lakers held their own as they outshot the Bengals 26 to 21 and won 14 more faceoffs. They were also the first to get on the board after Kate Randazzo found Andrea Noss for the goal. The assist was Randazzo’s team leading fifth assist of the season. The momentum shifted starting in the second period though with Buffalo State’s Erin Gehen finding the back of the net. While the Lakers seemed to regain the momentum in the beginning of the third, a bouncing puck off the stick of a Bengal landing past Oswego’s goalie Mariah Madrigal ended it.
In between the pipes, Madrigal played nearly the entire game for the Lakers and finished with 19 saves.
Oswego will see their next action on Saturday when they travel to Plattsburgh to take on the Cardinals at 3 pm.
