Roundup: Cornell picks up win

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Cornell scored two third-period goals to break a 1-1 deadlock and capture a 3-1 win against Brown on Friday evening at Meehan Auditorium. The Big Red improved to 11-1-2 (7-0-2 ECAC Hockey), while the Bears slipped to 1-10-3 (0-6-1 ECAC Hockey).

After a full month since its last game, the Big Red was able to shake some rust off . Jillian Saulnier had a short-handed goal to get the Big Red on the board and assisted on the game's final goal as the lone multi-point scorer in the Big Red win. Emily Fulton and Hanna Bunton each lit the lamp, with Bunton's score just 1:18 into the third the decisive score. Cassandra Poudrier, Sydney Smith and Taylor Woods were each credited with assists.

In goal, Lauren Slebodnick outdueled a game Aubree Moore by making 12 saves, including four in the decisive third period. Moore made 24 stops for the Bears in defeat.

Cornell ran out to a lead midway through the first period when Saulnier scored down a man after the Big Red's first penalty of the night. Her goal 8:50 in stood until Brown tied the score when Janice Young tipped in a shot from Sarah Robson to even the score at 1-1 with 10:43 left in the second despite Cornell's 13-4 edge in shots in the period.

The visitors regained the lead early in the third as Bunton redirected a shot by Poudrier into the net to make it 2-1, and Fulton cashed in on an insurance goal shortly after an expired penalty to make it 3-1 with 6:28 left in regulation.

No. 2 Wisconsin 3, St. Cloud State 1

ST. CLOUD, Minn. -- Wisconsin scored two unanswered goals in the third period to skate past St. Cloud State 3-1 on Friday at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center.

The Badgers (15-2-2, 11-2-2 WCHA) extended their nation-leading unbeaten streak to 15 games and their winning streak against the Huskies (3-15-3, 2-11-2 WCHA) to 19 games.

Junior Brittany Ammerman opened up the scoring for the Badgers with a breakaway goal in the first period to give UW a 1-0 lead off of a nice feed by fellow junior Blayre Turnbull.

The two teams battled in the second period, and despite outshooting St. Cloud State 19-9, the Badgers couldn’t extend their lead.

St. Cloud State answered early in the third frame, as Julia Gilbert snuck the puck past UW netminder Ann-Renée Desbiens to even the score at one with 18 minutes to go. 

The Badgers struck back minutes later as Rachel Jones gave UW a lead it would never relinquish, scoring her first goal of the year on a breakaway to propel the Badgers to a 2-1 advantage.

After St. Cloud State pulled Julie Friend with just more than a minute to go, junior Katy Josephs tacked on an empty-net goal with 36 seconds remaining to seal the game for the Badgers.
