Canton, NY – Logan Conger (Tyendinaga, ON) scored her third goal of the season but visiting SUNY Potsdam scored three goals from their special teams units to earn a 4-1 victory against host SUNY Canton on Tuesday evening in the Roos House.
The Roos nearly took a 1-0 lead nine minutes in as Whitney Bernier(Newport, VT) clanged a shot off the right post with SUNY Canton on the penalty kill. Anna-Rose Bertin got the Bears on the board first at 17:19 of the opening period when she netted her third of the season on the power play. Jaci Morr and Katie Marsman assisted on the marker.

Bertin slotted her second of the game just after a Bears power play ended at 6:36 of the middle period. Her shot deflected off a defender and just inside the near post past the glove of DiNardo. Midway through the frame the Roos got on the board when Bernier hit Logan Conger (Tyendinaga, ON) with a pass in the slot as she fired a shot through the five-hole of Abby Tardelli. Margret Troiano (Morristown, NY) also earned an assist on the play.
Potsdam extended the lead to 4-1 at 14:26 when Morr scored her first tally of the season with the skater advantage off passes from Greene and Ott. The Bears took the three goal advantage into second intermission.
