Roos Sweep Vikings with 2-0 Shutout on Saturday


Canton, NY – Logan Conger (Tyendinaga, ON) recorded two assists and Kat McNeilly (Scarborough, ON) added a goal and assist as the SUNY Canton women's hockey team earned a 2-0 Colonial Hockey Conference victory against visiting Salem State University on Saturday afternoon at the Roos House.

The Roos (4-4-1, 4-1-1 CHC) got on the board first at 16:47 of the first when Rhea Coad (Wheatfield, NY) netted her second goal in as many games on a beautiful play. She dangled and lifted a backhanded shot top shelf into the right corner of net. Conger and McNeilly earned helpers on the play. The Roos took a 1-0 lead into first intermission after outshooting the Vikings 19-4 in the opening period.


SUNY Canton extended its lead to 2-0 at 13:12 of the second when Conger set up her second goal of the night. Conger delivered the puck from the left corner to McNeilly who ripped a shot high over the stick side of Salem State (3-4-0, 2-4-0 CHC) goaltender Jenn Toussaint. The Roos took a 2-0 lead into the second intermission.

Neither team was able to find the back of the net in an even third period as the Vikings held a slim 9-8 shots on goal advantage. Rebecca DiNardo (Ottawa, ON) stopped all 21 shots she faced to secure the shutout, while Toussaint made 47 stops for Salem State.
