“For Plattsburgh, Brooke Knight was solid throughout, and Anna Hewitt played a great game defensively.”

SARANAC — The Chiefs, who weren’t able to hold 3-0 and 4-3 leads, needed Amy LoTemplio’s goal with five minutes remaining in regulation to defeat the Indians.
Things were looking good for Saranac when Ellen Thew scored two goals and Kayla Napper one in the first half to give the Chiefs a 3-0 lead.
But two goals by Lindsey Bushey and one by Rachel Sheldrake rallied Peru into a 3-all tie midway though the second half.
Napper then put Saranac back up by one only to have Sam Spear answer for the Indians with 13 minutes remaining in regulation.
Eight minutes later, LoTemplio tallied the game-winning goal.
Napper also registered two assists, while LoTemplio, McKayla Duquette and Summer Gillespie added one apiece.
