The Oswego State women’s ice hockey team lost to the Hamilton Continentals by a score of 3-0. With the loss, the Lakers fall to 5-7 overall while also seeing their two game win streak come to an end. The Continentals move to 5-2 on the season.
Offensively, Oswego mustered only 16 shots with three of their defensemen, Natalie Giglio, Madison Byrne and Philomena Teggart each putting up two. On the few scoring opportunities the team did have though, they could not capitalize as they missed open looks and pucks in front of the net.
Penalties and power play opportunities decided the outcome between these two teams with Hamilton making the best of their chances. Of the three goals scored by the Continentals, all three came on the power play.
With the Lakers’ starting goalie Mariah Madrigal still day-to-day with an injury, Amber Samonek played the entire game in net, stopping 22 shots. Continentals’ Sam Walther continued her dominant play shutting out her opponent for the third consecutive game.
Oswego will be back in action on January 7, 2018 when they take on Utica College at the Marano Campus Center Ice Arena. Puck drop is scheduled for 3 pm.
