2019 WSYB/Catamount Radio Invitational Highlights
Endicott 4, SUNY Canton 3 (OT) [Championship]
Endicott came storming back with two goals in the final four minutes of the third period to tie it at 3-3 and sent it to overtime. Less than a minute into the extra period, Lexi Klein broke away from the defense and lifted the puck over the Roos goalie for the victory. Brooke Susac - Canton's netminder - notched 54 saves including 20 in the third frame.
Manhattanville 2, Castleton 1 [Consolation]
Nicole Mensi scored in the first to give Manhattanville an early advantage that would hold until the midpoint of the third period where she would net an unassisted score to put the Valiants up 2-0. Castleton's Samantha Munroe answered only moments later to bring the Spartans back within one, where it would stay.
SUNY Canton 4, Castleton 3 (OT) [Semifinal #1]
Hannah Brady scored two goals, including the overtime game-winner to send the Kangaroos into the tournament finals. Jade Remillard scored twice for Castleton. Canton took the lead on three separate occasions but the Spartans scored three game-tying goals, including Remillard's second tally with 5:18 remaining in regulation.
Endicott 2, Manhattanville 1 (SO) [Semifinal #2]
The Valiants got on the board first with a tally from Adelle Clark at the 16:04 mark of the first period. Endicott's Caroline Hughes responded in the second frame by stealing the puck from a defender to net her third goal of the season. After a scoreless overtime period, Hughes scored for the Gulls' in the first round and Vendela Jonsson turned away all three Manhattanville chances to advance Endicott to the finals.
