The Plattsburgh State women’s hockey team followed up Saturday night’s 3-1 wins with a 5-1 victory Sunday.

Kayla Meneghin, who scored first in last night’s game, started the scoring in the first period for the Cardinals, getting her shot past Knights goalie Justina Mayr 11:45 into the first period.

PSUC would tally three goals in the second period including two on the power play. Giovanna Senese opened the scoring 1:29 into the period, freshman Melissa Sheeran and Meneghin picked up the assists.

The next two goals would be from two seniors on the power play within two minutes of each other. First was Alyssa Parke followed up by the first of two goals on the afternoon for Shannon Stewart to give the Cards a 4-0 lead.

Neumann would score their only goal of the game in the third period when Shanelle Douchette scored her first of the season during a power play for the Knights.

Shannon Stewart would respond 32 seconds after to put the Cardinals back up four goals. In Sunday’s game Stewart collected her 50th and 51st career goals at PSUC.

Ally Ross got her fourth-straight start for the Cardinals making 12 saves on 12 shots. Mayr also played in her fourth game of the season making 32 saves on 37 shots.

PSUC now moves to 3-0-1 (2-0-0 ECACW) while Neumann suffered their fourth- straight loss and now finds themselves in a 0-4-0 (0-2-0 ECACW) hole.

PSUC will have its home opener this Saturday for a double header against another ECAC West team from Pennsylvania in Chatam. Saturday will also mark a special evening for the Cards as they will be doing their 2012-14 NCAA Division III women’s hockey championship banner raising ceremony before the game at Ronald B. Stafford Ice Arena.
