March 20: It looked like St. Lawrence University's men's hockey team might finally get one against Colgate in its ECAC semifinal game at Lake Placid on Friday night. But, despite rallying three times from one-goal deficits, the Saints could never get a lead on the Raiders and the season ended 9:34 into overtime when junior center Mike Borkowski scored the game winner.   Colgate, 22-11-4, advances to play Harvard, a 5-2 winner over Quinnipiac in the early game with the two meeting at 7:30 Saturday in the title game. The Saints, who were picked to finish 11th in the pre-season polls, but charged to a second place finish, complete their year with a 20-14-3 overall mark.   "I think the difference tonight, now that the game is over, is that they are a more experienced team than we are," said Saint coach Greg Carvel. "They made us pay when we made mistakes in our game. Five minutes into the game we had a little breakdown in our system and they scored.   "They're a really good team. I have watched that team grow up…we've played them in the playoffs three years in a row and they've had the same first line in each of those years.  We have a lot of respect for that team. I think as a group we showed a little inexperience at playing playoff games at this level and in this kind of environment. We didn't play our best tonight, but we did play well enough to make it a good hockey game. But, again, we could have been better, but Colgate is a good hockey team and they made us pay."   The Raiders had the Saints' number this season, winning all three meetings and never trailing in any of the games with the line of Borkowski, Darcy Murphy and Joe Wilson doing just about all of the damage on Friday. Murphy had two goals and an assist, Borkowski had three assists to go with the game winner and Wilson had a goal and two assists.   Murphy opened the scoring just 3:21 into the game when he got a step on a Saint defender and snapped a shot into the upper corner over the glove of Saint rookie goalie Kyle Hayton. It held as the only goal of the first and the Saints came back to tie it just 1:04 into the second period when Joe Sullivan worked the puck in front to Mike Marnell who scored his 11th of the season and his third of the playoffs with Patrick Doherty also assisting.   Murphy scored his second of the night after a neutral zone turnover by the Saints set up an odd man rush with Murphy finishing it for his 10th of the year at 5:46 of the second.   The Saints, who had the shooting lanes for their defensemen taken away for a good part of the game by the Raiders, pulled even on a power play goal by Eric Sweetman, who scored his fifth of the season on a shot from the center point with Tommy Thompson and Mitch Eden assisting at 17:23.   Wilson scored his 11th 2:33 into the third as Murphy worked the puck free behind the net and Wilson walked out and tucked it inside the post for a 3-2 lead. It stayed that way until the final two minutes when the Saints pulled Hayton for and extra attacker and Gavin Bayreuther tied it at 18:38, getting his own rebound and burying a shot inside the far post. It was the first extra attacker goal of the year for the Saints and was set up by Brian Ward and Gunnar Hughes.   The Saints came out firing to start the overtime and had the edge in play with Colgate goalie Charlie Finn coming up with some key stops. The Raiders finally won it when the Saints couldn't clear in the defensive zone and defenseman Kevin Lough got the puck to Borkowski, who buried the game winner from between the faceoff dots at 9:34 of the overtime.   "We were picked to finish 11th because we lost a lot of scoring and a goalie who played four years. But I am more concerned about losing Gunnar Hughes, Pat Doherty and Chris Martin this year. They are really gutsy players, and heart is a lot harder to replace than talent. This group was a fun group to coach, they played hard every night." Carvel added

March 14: Freshman wing Mike Marnell scored two goals and set up a third and goaltender Kyle Hayton made 38 saves for his second straight playoff win as St. Lawrence University advanced to the ECAC semifinals in Lake Placid with a 5-1 win over Rensselaer to complete a quarterfinal series sweep at Appleton Arena Saturday night.   The Saints, 1-0 winners on Friday in just the second home 1-0 victory in program history, improve to 20-13-3 heading into its first appearance in the semifinals since 2010 while RPI finishes its season 12-26-3 after a hard-fought series with the Saints. Second-seeded SLU will have to wait until Sunday evening to find out its semifinal opponent and game time as both top seed Quinnipiac and third seed Yale will play a decisive game three on Sunday with their series against Union and Harvard tied at 1-1.   Marnell picked a big night for his first collegiate two-goal game as the Saints improved to 6-0 in ECAC tournament games and 7-0 in post-season play overall against the Engineers. He opened the scoring 5:45 into the game as he redirected a shot from the point by freshman defenseman Nolan Gluchowski past RPI goalie Jason Kasdorf and then stemmed a momentum shift with a big goal with 1:51 left in the second period to  make it 3-1 after two.   "Our freshman class has been outstanding," said Saint coach Greg Carvel. "Marnell and Gluchowski  had big nights tonight and Hayton has been tremendous from the start.   "It is never easy to knock a team out, and I give RPI a lot of credit. They got a lot of pucks to the net and the momentum was against us for a good stretch midway through the game, but Marnell's second goal took the wind out of their sails and we put together a solid defensive effort in the third period. We also waited a little more on the transition in the third and Christian Horn's goal was a result of that.   "It is exciting to get back to Lake Placid with the chance to play for a championship," Carvel added. "This group has certainly exceeded expectations throughout the year and this is a great reward for their efforts."   Alex Dahl gave the Saints a 2-0 lead just 1:05 after Marnell's first goal as a pass from senior defenseman Chris Martin went in off Dahl's skate and the goal withstood a video review.   RPI, which outshot the Saints 39-27 for the game and 16-9 in the first period finally got a puck past Hayton 2:02 into the second period when Chris Bradley sprung junior center Mark Miller on a breakaway and Miller scored his seventh of the year. Marnell gave the Saints their two goal lead back at the other end of the period as he took a pass from Martin, controlled a bouncing puck and walked in on Kasdorf for his second of the game and 10th of the year.   Sean McGovern then sent sophomore Christian Horn in on a rush with just over three minutes to play and Horn put his seventh of the year in off the post at 16:58 and Marnell set up junior center Brian Ward for Ward's ninth of the year into the empty net with 14 seconds to go in the game.   Hayton finished with 38 saves for the Saints while Kasdorf had 22 for RPI.

March 21: The Plattsburgh State women's ice hockey team captured their second-straight and fourth National Championship on Saturday night defeating the Elmira Soaring Eagles 3-2.   Plattsburgh State would take a penalty 6:32 into the game but it was the Cardinals that struck first on a Giovanna Senese breakaway short-hand goal. The Huntley, Ill., native deked forehand before roofing one backhand over Elmira goaltender Kyle Nelson.   Elmira would respond quickly in the second period as 2015 Laura Hurd winner Ashley Ryan would slip one through the legs of Leonard to tie the game 1-1, 1:51 into the middle frame.   Junior, Bridget Balisy would put the Cardinals back on the top 2-1 when she collected a loose puck off an Elmira defenseman in front of the net before making a move beating Nelson five-hole.   The Cardinals would add to their lead making it a 3-1 game when Kayla Meneghin received a cross ice pass right at the bottom of the right circle putting it short side over Nelson.   Elmira wouldn't go down quietly and would take back some of the momentum when Olivia Nystrom beat Leonard just 29 seconds after Plattsburgh State score its third goal.   Elmira would pull their goalie to try to gain the equalizer but the Cardinals defense wouldn't break steering away every Elmira opportunity.   Leonard would make 22 saves on 24 shots while Nelson would make 27 on 30 shots.   The 2015 NCAA All-Tournament team featured Norwich's Kaycie Anderson and UW-River Fall's Paige Johnson. From Elmira was Ashley Ryan and representing Plattsburgh State was Balisy, Leonard and tournament MVP Giovanna Senese.   Plattsburgh State finished 26-2-2 and hoisted its second National Championship in the Stafford Ice Arena in as many seasons.   Elmira ended the season 26-3-1 and in second place.   It was the fifth time Plattsburgh State and Elmira with the Cardinals claiming a slight edge 3-2 on the season.   With the win Plattsburgh State becomes the all-time leader in National Championships claiming its fourth title.

March 20: The Plattsburgh State women's hockey team opened up their quest to defend their 2014 NCAA Division III Women's National Championship with a rematch of last year's title game against Norwich. Plattsburgh State punched its second straight ticket to the national finals by defeating the Cadets 5-2 at the Ronald B. Stafford Ice Arena.   The Cardinals got on the board first with an Alyssa Parke power play goal 2:42 into the game. The goal was setup by Bridget Balisy who cycled the puck to Giovanna Sense. Senese then slung the puck back to the top to Parke who was camped in the top of the slot. The 2015 first-team All-American then ripped a slap shot clean through the Norwich and past Cadet goaltender Celeste Robert.   Plattsburgh State was not done as they tallied four-straight goals on Norwich with two in the first and two in the second.   Kayla Meneghin would score her first of two on the day, a short-handed marker 12:14 into the first period. The freshman from Clifton, N.J. joined an odd man rush with Jordan Lipson. Lipson slid the puck cross ice setting up Meneghin who lifted over Robert shoulder short-side.   It was a bit of a strange time in the Stafford Ice Arena as the goal light went on but play continued for several seconds. At the next whistle the officials came together to talk it over before rewarding the Cardinals with the goal.   The second period was more of the same as Plattsburgh State came out with another quick strike just 36 seconds in.    Parke sent another blast towards the net from her point position. The puck careened off the boards to the right of the net, bouncing right to Melissa Sheeran who tapped it in before Robert could slide over in time.    Junior Bridget Balisy would make it 4-0 Cardinals when she sniped one past Robert on a beautiful pass from Lipson.   This would mark the end of Robert's night as she was lifted for Laurie King.   Again, Lipson setup her teammate on a 2-1 rush sliding one across the slot to Balisy who finished it off with her 19 goal of the season.   However, the Cadets would not go down quietly, especially senior forward Kaycie Anderson.   Anderson would score a 5-3 power play goal to get Norwich on the goal. She collected the puck off of several rebounds before finally being able to beat Cardinals goaltender Camille Leonard.   The Maple Plain, Minn., native would strike again in the beginning of the third period to make it 4-2 and give the Cadets a little momentum headed down the final stretch.   But it would not be enough as Plattsburgh State would weather Anderson's - and the Cadets - offensive attack before salting the game away with Meneghin's second of the game provided by the empty net with just 12 seconds left.   Cardinals' goaltender Leonard finished the evening with 22 saves on 24 shots. Robert picked up the loss after allowing the first four goals. King would make all nine saves she faced in 31:17 minutes of action.   With the win Plattsburgh State moves to 25-2-2 on the season and will appear in its second-straight NCAA Division III Women's Ice Hockey National Championship Saturday night at 7 p.m. against the Elmira College Soaring Eagles. It will be the fifth time these two teams have meet in the 2014-15 season.    Norwich falls to the Cardinals for the second-straight time this season.

March 14: A remarkable season came to a close for the Clarkson University Women's Hockey team in the NCAA Quarterfinal round on Saturday afternoon as #2 seed Boston College defeated the Golden Knights 5-1 at Kelley Rink in Chestnut Hill, MA. A young team, which had to overcome the loss of numerous key veterans from last year's National Championship squad, Clarkson finished one of the best seasons in the program's 12-year history with a 24-11-3 record. Audio NCAA postgame press conference Boston College used a two-goal effort from Patty Kazmaier Award finalist and U.S. Olympian Alex Carpenter to complete an undefeated 19-0 mark at home this season. The Eagles, who stand at 34-2-2, will face the winner of the Quinnipiac-Harvard quarterfinal game next Friday in the semifinal round to be played at Ridder Arena on the campus of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. The 2015 NCAA National Championship game will be play on Sunday, March 22. The Eagles took a 1-0 lead at 11:28 of the first period on a goal by Carpenter and then the nation's leading scorer connected again just 23 seconds into the middle frame for her 37th goal of the season. Boston College made it 3-0 at 15:55 on Kristyn Capizzano's tally. Playing in her school-record 154th career game, senior defenseman Daniella Matteucci (Fruitvale, BC) put Clarkson on the scoreboard when her shot through the point squirted through the pads of the Eagles' goaltender for her fourth goal of the season  at 1:50 of the third period. Audio Matteucci goal The Eagles, however, would add a pair of late goals, including an empty-netter with two minutes remaining to ice the victory and move on to the Frozen Four. The Eagles outshot Clarkson 31-21. Freshman goaltender Shea Tiley (Owen Sound, ONT) made 26 saves in her NCAA Tournament debut. Katie Burt had 20 saves for BC. Audio Tiley save The Knights went 0-of-2 on the power play and killed off all four of BC's man-advantage opportunities.

March 7: Three third period goals doomed the Clarkson University Women's Hockey team as they fell to Cornell 3-1 in the ECAC Hockey Championship semifinals on Saturday afternoon in Cheel Arena.   Clarkson is now 24-10-3 on the season while Cornell is 19-10-3. The Big Red will advance to play in the championship game on Sunday afternoon.   The Golden Knights would open the scoring at 15:20 when junior Cayley Mercer (Exeter, ONT) fit a wrist shot between the Big Red goalie and the right post. Senior Christine Lambert (Thetford Mines, QUE) and junior assistant captain Olivia Howe (Moose Jaw, SASK) had assists on the goal. Audio Mercer goal   The score would remain 1-0 until 6:52 in the third period when Cornell would strike twice within a minute. First, Emily Fulton found Jillian Saulnier in front of the net for a power play goal. Just 23 seconds later, the puck bounced to Hanna Bunton in front of the Clarkson net and she buried it to give Cornell their first lead. They would add an insurance goal at 13:12 when Cassandra Poudrier centered a puck from behind the net and Brianne Jenner was there to finish it.   Cornell is still alive for their third straight ECAC Hockey tournament championship. They have also defeated Clarkson three straight times in Cheel Arena, including a 1-0 triumph in the 2014 tournament final.   Clarkson freshman goaltender Shea Tiley (Owen Sound, ONT) finished with 18 saves. Cornell held a slight advantage in shots, 21-20. Clarkson was 0-4 on man advantage opportunities while Cornell scored on one of their five power plays.   Clarkson will await the NCAA Women's Ice Hockey Selection Show, which will be shown tomorrow at 7pm and will announce whether the Green and Gold will play next weekend in the NCAA Tournament.  In the second semifinal, Harvard scored just under three minutes into overtime to complete a comeback and defeat Quinnipiac 2-1 in the ECAC Hockey semifinals.   Quinnipiac opened the scoring at 6:16 in the first period when Emma Woods scored off a pass from Nicole Brown. The Crimson would tie the game at 7:14 in the third period when Sarah Edney scored off a pass from Michelle Picard. Miye D'Oench would score the game winning goal 2:39 into the overtime period.

Feb. 3: A pair of second period goals and a power-play tally helped the No. 10 Clarkson women's hockey team past No. 8/9 St. Lawrence, 3-1, at Appleton Arena on Tuesday night. The loss halts the Saints' unbeaten streak at eight games and drops them to fifth place in the ECAC standings. The Knights (17-8-3; 11-3-2 ECAC) outshot the Saints (16-9-3; 10-4-2 ECAC) in the first period 14-9, but the Saints applied pressure to the visitors in the following two periods; finishing with a 43-26 advantage in shots for the game. Shea Tiley made a number of great saves down the stretch for Clarkson. "Clarkson played a very good road game," Head Coach Chris Wells said. "Once they got the first one it was very tough to get any quality shots or opportunities. The D did a fantastic job putting sticks in lanes to deflect pucks and breakup plays.  We certainly made it exciting in the third," he added, "but Tiley was solid all night and in control of anything we put on the net." St. Lawrence pulled senior netminder Carmen MacDonald for the extra attacker with just over eight minutes remaining in the final frame and controlled much of the play within their offensive zone. Sophomore Kirsten Padalis scored her second goal in as many games  during that time with her team a man up. After a scoreless first period in which the Saints successfully killed two penalties, Clarkson's Olivia Howe got her team on the board with a breakaway goal off a turnover at the 6:28 mark. She moved in on senior netminder Carmen MacDonald and faked to the left post before cutting across the crease and finishing on the backhand. Cayley Mercer extended the Golden Knights lead to 2-0 when she roofed a shot over the shoulder of MacDonald from the bottom of the left circle with Howe and Christine Lambert assisting. The third Clarkson goal was a power-play tally at the 7:08 mark of the third period by Genevieve Bannon off a feed from Lambert and Erin Ambrose. "They had three beauty goals by Howe, Mercer and Bannon and some great efforts; most recognizable was the sprint race for the puck by Howe to negate the icing and take some momentum away from us," Wells added. With Clarkson leading 3-0, Padalis finally cashed in with 2:29 remaining in regulation. After taking a pass from classmate Brooke Webster, Padalis stepped into a slapshot just inside the left blue line that sailed through traffic and into the back of the net to spoil Tiley's shutout bid. The Saints will now turn their attention to Union and RPI, as they hit the road for a pair of ECAC Hockey matchups with the Capitol District teams. 

Jan. 31: The ninth-ranked St. Lawrence women's hockey team extended its unbeaten streak to eight games with an exciting 4-3 win over Yale on Saturday afternoon at Appleton Arena. Junior wing Jenna Marks tallied with the game-winning goal and an assist, while senior captain Amanda Boulier recorded a goal and an assist of her own. With the win, the Saints improve to 16-8-3 overall and 10-3-2 in ECAC Hockey. The Bulldogs, who stormed into Appleton after upsetting Clarkson 3-2 on Friday night, fall to 10-12-1 and 7-9-0 in conference games. "That was an exciting game that had just about everything a player, fan and coach could want," Head Coach Chris Wells said. "Yale plays with great pace and they create so much off the rush."   The Saints jumped out in front early with a goal by sophomore defenseman Kirsten Padalis just two minutes in. Bulldogs netminder Jaimie Leonoff made a stop on an initial shot by Marks,  but couldn't thwart the second-chance opportunity by Padalis, who came crashing through the slot to bury her fourth of the year. Yale's Jamie Haddad – a player who gave the Saints trouble all afternoon with her aggressive style of play – pulled her team even at the 7:34 mark of the opening frame with a wrist shot from the slot that found its way behind senior goaltender Carmen MacDonald. At the 13:40 mark of the first Yale's Madi Murray was assessed a penalty for hooking, which opened the floodgates, as the Bulldogs were whistled for four minor penalties and the Saints for two in a matter of just six minutes. With Saints on a four-on-three power play, Boulier took a cross-ice pass from fellow blueliner Amanda McClure and took a quick shot from the top of the left circle that floated through traffic and over Leonoff's shoulder to give the Saints a 2-1 lead headed in to the first intermission. The teams combined for four second period goals, with the Saints scoring two to open up a 4-1 lead on the Bulldogs before the visitors responded with two goals of their own in a span of just 58 seconds to pull within one and carry plenty of momentum into the final period of play. Jacqueline Wand scored the first of the Saints goals in the second period, making it 3-1 in favor of the home team as the trailer on an odd-man rush with Kennedy Marchment and Brooke Webster. Marchment carried the puck down the right wing before dishing to Webster on the left side. Webster's shot was stopped by Leonoff, but the Bulldog netminder kicked the rebound right in between the circles and onto the stick of Wand, who was crashing through the slot to finish. Marks tallied her game-winning goal at the 7:40 mark of the second when she tucked home the rebound from an Amanda Boulier shot for her twelfth marker of the season. It didn't take long for the Bulldogs to answer with Taylor Marchin finding the net with a slapshot from the right point that sailed through traffic as her teammates collapsed in to screen MacDonald. Fifty eight seconds later, MacDonald made three straight point blank saves on Yale with the Saints unable to clear the rebound to the wall. The fourth shot came off the stick of Jackie Raines and pulled the Bulldogs within one at 4-3, but that would be the last puck they snuck behind the St. Lawrence senior. MacDonald made 10 saves in the third to keep the Saints out in front while dealing with plenty of pressure from the visitors out in front of her crease, particularly from Olympian Phoebe Staenz. The Pictou, Nova Scotia native finished with 21 saves in the contest, while Leonoff stopped 32 shots for the Bulldogs. "We were fortunate to make some key blocks in the 3rd from both our players and Carmen to get the two points," Wells added.

After the teams traded penalties, Fayerman evened the score with a power-play goal at 15:44. Ott and junior assistant captain Katie Marsman (Wantagh, N.Y./Wyoming Seminary) assisted on the play. The score remained 1-1 into the first intermission. The second period featured more even play with the Bears outshooting Canton 10-8. Each team added another brief, fruitless power play midway through the second period. With 45 seconds remaining, freshman forward Brenna Wilson (Kanata, Ontario/Ottawa Senators) set up classmate Anna-Rose Bertin (Marathon, Ontario/Canadian International Hockey Academy) to put the Bears up 2-1. Just over six minutes into the third period, Mooney scored on a helper from junior defenseman Emily Kriwox (Tupper Lake, N.Y./Tupper Lake Lumberjacks). The point was the first of Kriwox's career. The rest of the period went the Roos' way. Twelve seconds later, Maddy Hetman scored to close the gap to 3-2. At 10:40, Margret Troiano tied the game. The Bears went on a 39-second, five-on-three power play with 3:02 left in regulation, but came up empty. Potsdam started overtime on the penalty kill for 45 seconds, but kept Canton from capitalizing. Ninety-two seconds into the extra session Ott sent everyone home. Junior forward Alison Greene (Massena, N.Y./Norwich University) and Fayerman recorded the assists. In goal, freshman Brianna Fiddler (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan/Scanlon Creek) made a career-high 31 saves to earn her second collegiate victory. Peyton Stafne made 32 stops for the Roos. Potsdam was 1-for-7 on the man advantage and Canton finished 0-for-4. The contest concluded the career of Fayerman, the Bears' lone senior.
