The weekend in sports – Nov. 3

The weekend in sports – Nov. 3

Quinnipiac continued its hot start to the season, shutting out Cornell 3-0 at Lynah Rink Saturday night.

The Bobcats have now won eight straight, and won Saturday in a much-anticipated match-up of teams that squared off in the ECAC playoffs last season.

The difference in the game Saturday was the power play. Quinnipiac went 2 for 5, while the Big Red went 0 for 6 in their opportunities with the extra man.

Cornell goes on the road next weekend for match-ups with Clarkson and St. Lawrence.

Cornell was on its way to its first loss of the season, but junior Emily Fulton, the ECAC player of the month for October, capitalized on a penalty shot to tie the game up.

Lauren Slebodnick made 29 saves for Cornell, who returns home next weekend for match-ups with RPI and Union.
