Danger lies ahead for hockey Cardinals

Plattsburgh counting on home-ice advantage, help from SUNYAC rivals

(Continued)

A 3-3 standoff with Cortland further underscores the fact that nothing has come easy for the Cardinals this season in SUNYAC.

Card women still No. 1

The Plattsburgh State women are still No. 1 in Div. III for the ninth week in a row, but Gustavus Adolphus cut into the Cardinals’ lead. The 3-3 tie with Utica on Saturday cost Plattsburgh two first-place votes and trimmed its poll lead to six points, from 14.

Kevin Houle’s Cardinals will close out the campaign on the road, at Potsdam (Sunday) and Neumann (Feb. 16-17).
