Girls’ Hockey goes 1-1-1 at Home, Bisons Bring Strong Competition

The Huskies took on the Buffalo Bisons at home, posting a 1-1-1 record this past weekend. The girls were challenged in all aspects of the game as the Bisons provided the strongest competition for the Huskies to date.

The first match of the weekend was played in Saranac Lake. The girls battled hard throughout the game, but a bad bounce in the middle of the third put the Huskies down 0-1. Ashley Davis (Goalie, 2017 PG) stopped 19 of 20 in net.

Later that night the Huskies returned to the Olympic Center to host the Bisons for a second time. Going down 3-1 from the start, the girls were on their heels but didn’t shy away as the game went on. Miranda Bookman (Forward, 2020) scored the lone Husky goal in the first. The second period was blank for both sides. At the end of the third Keeley Rose (Forward, 2018) and Hanna Rose (Defense, 2018) came in clutch scoring two beautiful goals to tie the game 3-3. Courtney Fairchild (Goalie, 2020) and Olivia Skriloff (Goalie, 2018) combined in net.

Looking for redemption in the third game the Huskies came out of the gate strong. Thirty seconds into the first, Moe Tsukimoto (Forward, 2018) scored five-hole to put the Huskies up 1-0. In the second, Tsukimoto  struck again adding another point to the board. The girls road the 2-0 high into the third and with only a few minutes left, Nikki Kendrick (Forward, 2018) scored to make it 3-0. Davis recorded the shutout on 17 shots.

With this weekend’s wins, the Huskies move to 10-3-1 on the season. The girls will be traveling to Detroit, MI to compete in the Detroit 2 Nations Tournament over the coming weekend.
