Tuesday night, Cornell women’s hockey finished its five home-game stretch with a close 3-1 win over local ECAC rival, Colgate University.
Cornell started the game with a 1-0 lead after 3:55 minutes of play. Senior forward Emily Fulton tipped the puck to fellow forward senior Jillian Saulnier, who created a two-on-one set up with sophomore forward Kaitlin Doering. Saulnier passed the puck cross-ice to Doering, who one-timed her shot and slid it five-hole into the goal.
After this goal, Cornell fought to maintain its one point advantage. Despite some added pressure from the opposition, the Red was able to contain Colgate’s efforts and keep its lead after the first period.
