Saints Score Three with Man Advantage

CANTON, N.Y. - No. 6 St. Lawrence's offense is tough enough to contend with even when the Saints don't have a man advantage. But while Yale allowed only one even-strength goal Friday afternoon at Appleton Arena, the Saints went three-for-eight on the power play to finish off a 4-0 win.

Yale junior goalie Jackee Snikeris made 16 saves in the first period alone to keep her team in the game. St. Lawrence (3-2-3, 1-1-0 ECAC Hockey) didn't get one past her until a power-play breakaway at 13:20 gave Vanessa Emond the first of her two goals for the game. Less than three minutes later Kayla Sullivan scored the only even-strength goal of the game, knocking in a pass from Emond.

Emond added another power-play goal off a rebound midway through the second period. Sophomore Genny Ladiges came on in relief of Snikeris (23 saves) to start the third, but another power-play goal -- this one by Britni Smith -- extended St. Lawrence's lead to 4-0 38 seconds in. Brittony Chartier finished off the shutout with 15 saves. Ladiges made eight.

Yale (0-1-1, 0-1-0 ECAC Hockey) continues its trip to the North Country with a game at No. 3 Clarkson Saturday at 2 p.m.
