The Oswego State women’s ice hockey team swept their home and home series against Cortland after their 4-1 win on Saturday. With the victory, the Lakers clinch the third seed in the NEWHL and move to 10-11-2 overall as well as 6-7-1 in conference action. The Red Dragons drop to 7-14-2 on the season.
Cortland was able to get on the board first when Katie DeVoe slapped one into the back of the net during the second period. It would not take Oswego long to answer though as Jean-Marie Padden was able to send a ricocheting puck past Cortland’s goalie, Rachael Farmer, just five minutes later.
In the third period, the Lakers’ offense was dominant with Olivia Ellis scoring her team-leading eighth goal of the season. Ellis would later assist on the goals from Kate Randazzo and Julieann White.
Cortland’s Farmer played all but 36 seconds in goal while recording 35 saves. Oswego’s Mariah Madrigal spent the entire game in net and stopped 14 shots.
The Lakers will return to action on Friday as they travel to Potsdam to take on the Bears. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 pm.
