VERMONT CATAMOUNTS SKATE TO 1-1 DRAW AT CLARKSON
Freshman Roxanne Douville makes 42 saves for Catamounts
POTSDAM, N.Y. - Sophomore Emily Walsh (Suffield, Conn.) scored her second goal of the season and freshman Roxanne Douville (Beloeil, Quebec) made 42 saves to lead Vermont to a 1-1 tie against Clarkson Saturday afternoon at Cheel Arena.
Vermont took a 1-0 lead with Walsh's goal at 18:33 of the first period. Clarkson goaltender Erica Howe (19 saves) was beat on a shot off a scramble in front of the net.
Clarkson tied the game late in the second period. Daris Tendler chased down a loose puck and centered it in the dying seconds of the period. After several deflections in front the puck found Kately Ptolemy who knocked it in for her first career goal with just 3.5 seconds remaining.
The Golden Knights controlled the play in the third period, outshooting Vermont 10-1 in the first 14 minutes. Clarkson appeared to break the tie late in the third period when Danielle Skirrow batted the puck out of midair and into the top of the Vermont net. However after further review, the goal was disallowed and the two teams would skate into overtime.
Clarkson outshot Vermont 5-1 in the five-minute overtime session but neither team could solve Howe or Douville as the game ended in a tie. The tie is Vermont's eighth of the season, setting a new school record.
Clarkson moves to 5-8-3 overall and Vermont improves to 1-6-8, marking their sixth tie in the last 10 games.
Clarkson and Vermont will meet again tomorrow afternoon (Nov. 28) at 2 p.m.
