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.
