The Oswego State women’s ice hockey team tied Plattsburgh 2-2 on Saturday. With the tie, the Lakers are now 8-11-2 overall and 4-7-1 in conference play while the Cardinals move to 17-2-2 on the season and 11-0-1 in the NEWHL. The game also marks the first time Oswego has not lost to Plattsburgh at home.
After allowing five goals in the first period Friday night, the Lakers defense held Plattsburgh to a single shot for the first ten minutes of the contest. During that time, Olivia Ellis scored her team leading seventh goal of the season to give Oswego an early lead. The Cardinals were able to fight their way back into the game with multiple power play opportunities due to the Lakers’ miscues. On the brink of defeat, Oswego’s Victoria Blake sent the puck sailing past the leg of Plattburgh’s goalie, Brooke Wolejko to tie the game up with just 17 seconds left.
The Lakers will head to Cortland on Friday as part of a home and home series. Puck drop is scheduled for 2 pm.
