POTSDAM, N.Y. -- Clarkson received goals from four different players to top Vermont, 4-1, in women's college hockey at Cheel Arena Saturday afternoon. Despite the loss, the Catamounts bounced back with an improved effort after falling to the Golden Knights in Friday night's season opening game.
Junior Jenilee Roy (Sandown, N.H.) made 33 saves including 17 in the second period in keeping the Catamounts (0-2-0) in the contest. UVM also killed all eight Clarkson power play attempts after allowing four power play goals Friday.
Carolynn Zidek found the net in the first period to give Clarkson a 1-0 lead that stood until late in the second period when Britney Selina and Jessica Cloutier scored to make it 3-0.
With 5:29 left in the contest, junior Karen Sentoff (Liverpool, N.Y.) scored Vermont's first goal of the season, an unassisted tally, to cut the deficit to 3-1. A minute later, Clarkson's Marie-Jo Gaudet closed out the scoring.
Clarkson (2-0-0) outshot UVM, 37-9, with Emma Hurley making eight saves in the Golden Knights crease.
Vermont opens Hockey East play next weekend with a pair of games at Connecticut. The Cats take on the Huskies Friday at 7:00pm and Saturday at 4:00pm.
