Canton 4, SLC 3: At the SUNY Canton rink, the host Lady Bears built a 3-1 lead but needed a pair of late third-period goals to put away the Lady Larries.
SLC opened the scoring when Lydia Cosgrove broke through for an unassisted goal just 3:37 into the game but Canton tied the game with 4:44 left in the first period on a goal by Taylor Marcellus that was assisted by Natalie Giglio.
Blake Orosz made it 2-1 at 5:12 of the second period assisted by Samantha Mace and Giglio pushed the lead to 3-1 just over two minutes later when Giglio finished off a play set up by Samantha Mace and Mary Kait Mace.
Brandi Thomas pulled the Lady Larries back to within one with an unassisted goal at the 8:20 mark of the middle frame. Madee Derouchie tied the game with 2:12 left in the period assisted by Paige DeBeer.
Orosz, who had been stopped twice before in the third period on partial breakaway attempts by SLC netminder Steph Peets, controlled a loose puck deep in the Canton zone and went end-to-end to score the eventual game-winning goal on a breakaway with 3:51 left in regulation. She went on to seal the win and complete her hattrick with an empty-net goal set up by Mackenzie Comeau with just 15 seconds remaining.
Peets finished with 28 saves for SLC while Elizabeth Burke blocked 11 shots for Canton.
The Lady Larries (0-5-1) are slated to host Massena next Wednesday at the Tri-Town Arena starting at 5 p.m.
