Women's ice hockey shuts out Cortland 3-0
The Hamilton College Continentals remained perfect in 17 all-time meetings with SUNY Cortland, blanking the Red Dragons 3-0 in a non-conference game at Hamilton's Russell Sage Rink on Friday afternoon.
The game was the first in 35 days for the Continentals (3-4-1 overall), who had a scheduled game against SUNY Canton postponed because of weather conditions on Tuesday, Jan. 7.
Katie Parkman ’17 had a hand in two goals for Hamilton, which outshot Cortland 42-8. Parkman assisted on the first goal and added an insurance score in the third period. Tori Bogen '14 stopped eight shots and recorded her second career shutout. Bogen recorded four of her saves while the Continentals held a one-goal lead, including three in the third period.
After outshooting the Red Dragons 27-3 over the first 35 minutes, Hamilton broke into the scoring column on a power-play goal by Gigi Fraser ’14. Fraser scored her team-leading fifth goal with 5:11 left in the second period when she tipped in a shot by Hannah Javen ’14.
Parkman’s goal, her third this winter, was an unassisted score with 7:40 to go in the third period that came 14 seconds after the Continentals pulled Bogen for an extra skater on a delayed penalty. Parkman put a close shot past Cortland’s Kelly Farinella ’17, corralling the puck after Farinella had saved a shot off the stick of Hannah Bartlett ’16.
Hamilton’s final goal was an unassisted score by Stephanie Lang ’14, who gained possession outside the blue line and beat Farinella on a high shot to the far corner for her fourth goal with 2:56 remaining.
Farinella finished with 39 saves, including a point-blank rejection of Teal Gosselin ’17 during a scoreless first period after Gosselin had taken a pass from behind the net. Farinella kept the Continentals off the board early in the second by stopping a breakaway chance by Megan Ahern ’17, who had maneuvered around Cortland’s last defender at center ice.
The Continentals are back in action on Saturday, hosting nationally ranked No. 3 Elmira College for another non-conference game at 7 p.m. The Red Dragons (2-8-2) are idle until a Jan. 17 game at top-ranked SUNY Plattsburgh.
