Pine City, NY- The Elmira College mens hockey team earned a weekend split as they hosted the Neumann University Knights . Friday, the Soaring Eagles squeaked out an overtime victory as Mike Collins netted the game winner two minutes into the extra peroid. Saturday's encounter found Neumann leaving no doubt they were going to gain the two points by jumping on Elmira's starting goalie Matt Milne, for three goals, two on the power play, then added a fourth when Ryan DeMelo spelled Milne. Scott Farrel figured in the first four goals, assisting on the first, adding an unassisted, then a third with help from his mates. The Soaring Eagles awoke from their slumber late in the third, ripping the nets for three goals within a two minute span. It was not enough though, and for good measure, the Knights added a fifth score to salvage the game 5-3.

Meanwhile, Elmira women's debut at home was positive, taking two from SUNY Cortland on Saturday 4-0 and added a 5-0 shutout on Sunday. Lauren Sullivan earned the victory in goal Saturday while Lisa Marshall stonewalled the Red Dragons on Sunday. The latter featured two-goal efforts by Madison Johnston and Tanis Lameroux.

Ithaca, NY - Coming off the bench in the second period, Cornell goaltender Katelyn Pippy turned aside all 11 shots she faced and allowed her Big Red teammates to rally for a 4-3 victory over Quinnipiac (5-4-1, 3-2 ECAC Hockey) Saturday afternoon at Lynah Rink.

With starting goaltender Stefannie Moak in place, the Big Red (6-1, 4-0 ECAC Hockey) took a 2-0 lead into the first intermission on goals by Jess Brown and Emily Fulton.

Quinnipiac cut the lead in half just nine seconds into the second frame on a goal by Nicole Connery. Less than two minutes later, Nicole Kosta knotted the game at two, and Kosta struck again at the 6:07 mark of the second to give the visitors a 3-2 lead. After the goal, Cornell head coach Doug Derraugh called a time out and replaced Moak with Pippy.

October's ECAC Hockey Player of the Month, Bobcat Kelly Babstock, assisted on all three Quinnipiac goals.

Pippy - and Bobcat goalie Victoria Vigilante - kept their opponents off the scoreboard for the remainder of the period.

In the third, Cornell got a goal from Cass Poudrier at 1:25 and a power play tally from Alyssa Gagliardi at 8:52, and the Big Red defense held steady to preserve the one-goal victory.

Derraugh said Slebodnick would not be available for Saturday's game against Quinnipiac.

The Red is without Brianne Jenner for the weekend, who is playing overseas with Team Canada in the Four Nations Cup.
