HOW IT HAPPENED
Suffolk put away three goals in a 6:43 span in the tail end of the first frame to gain an early edge it would not let go of.
Less than five minutes later Tess Adams got in on the scoring action. The senior struck on Suffolk's penalty kill 4:07 after Dockus' goal. The shorthanded strike came by help of Sydney Jordan and Izzy Hendry.
With 12 seconds left before the intermission Shana Cote pushed the Rams' cushion to three with her first goal of the season. Cote buried a feed from Adams and Grace Scholz to send Suffolk into the locker room ahead 3-0.
