Weekend sweep for Cornell hockey

Weekend sweep for Cornell hockey

The Cornell men’s hockey team completed a sweep Saturday on the road at Nebraska-Omaha, winning 4-3.

Following a 5-3 win Friday night to open their season, Cornell returned to the ice in the midwest and scored four power-play goals for their second straight win.

Joel Lowry’s goal about halfway through the third period put Cornell up 4-3, but it wouldn’t have held up if it wasn’t for the performance of Ithaca native Andy Iles, who made 37 saves in getting his second win of the season.

The Red open their ECAC league play next Friday against Princeton at Lynah Rink. A night later, they’ll host last year’s national runner-up Quinnipiac, a team they took to three games in the ECAC quarterfinals last year.

Cornell women stay undefeated with weekend sweep

Scoring doesn’t appear to be a problem for the Cornell women’s hockey team.

For the third time in four games, Cornell, ranked fourth in the country, scored six goals in a 6-4 win over St. Lawrence Saturday.

Cornell avoided a letdown, following their big win over 5th-ranked Clarkson on Friday night by a score of 6-3.

Senior co-captain Jessica Campbell scored twice on Saturday, and leading goal scorers Emily Fulton and Jillian Saulnier also chipped in with a goal.

Cornell hits the road for the first time next weekend with away games at Princeton and Quinnipiac.
