MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State Women's Ice Hockey team picked up a win in the second day of their Colonial Hockey Conference series against SUNY Canton on Saturday afternoon. The Mustangs outlasted the Kangaroos 6-2, bringing their mark to 6-0 on the year and 4-0 in CHC play.
Kylie Cameron (Burlington, Ontario) put the Mustangs on the board first just over halfway into the first period. Cameron found the back of the net after Maria deWilde (Caistorville, Ontario) slipped her a pass in front of the net for the easy flick shot.
Morrisville extended their lead to 2-0 at the 17:44 mark when Vanessa Klimpke (Winnipeg, Manitoba) flipped a pass up in front of the crease to Renee Stevenson (Winnipeg, Manitoba) who swatted it past Brooke Susac, the Kangaroos goal tender.
SUNY Canton cut the lead in half early on in the second period when Rhea Coad converted an unassisted goal. However, the Mustangs responded quickly to keep their two goal cushion on a power play goal at the 3:58 mark. Kanekaroroks McComber (Kahnawake, Quebec) and Stevenson each took shots at Susac, but it was ultimately Klimpke who deposited the final deflection into the net for the 3-1 lead.
The Kangaroos continued to put the pressure back on the Mustangs in the second period with a power play goal at the 10:52 mark. However, the offensive push from SUNY Canton was short lived, as Stevenson scored just 20 seconds later to bring the score to 4-2 in favor of the Mustangs.
Klimpke added to her goal total at 14:41 in the second period with her ninth goal of the season. McComber and Kimberly Hughes (Lloydminster, Alberta) assisted on the play.
Kaitlyn Schlake (Nampa, Idaho) would round out the scoring for the Mustangs with a solo tally off of a breakaway at the 3:50 mark in the third.
