Hamilton Takes Local Rivalry Game Over Mustangs, 3-0

MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State Women's Ice Hockey team continued to struggle to find the back of the net on Tuesday night, falling 3-0 in a non-conference matchup with local rival Hamilton College. 

While the Mustangs were not out shot in the contest, it was the persistent attack of the Continentals that prevailed as Hamilton scored a goal in each of the three periods to secure the victory.

Missy Segall lead off the scoring for the visitors, finding the back of the net with just under five minutes left to play in the first period.  Three minutes later, the Mustangs went on the power play, but only managed two shots. 

Andrea Rockey picked up her fourth goal of the year on a diving put-back off of Maddie Beitler's initial shot at the 17:23 mark in the second period. 

A breakaway at the 5:46 mark in the third period by Karina Sirabian rounded out the scoring for Hamilton. 

The Mustangs will have the weekend off before returning to Colonial Hockey Conference action on January 26 and 27.  The Friday night opener at SUNY Canton is scheduled for 4 PM, while Saturday's contest is slated to start at 2 PM.
