SARANAC LAKE — The Huskies scored their way to a decisive victory over Saranac Lake Placid in Upstate New York Girls Hockey League action, Wednesday.

Franklin Academy saw six different goal scorers in the game. Lindsey Durant scored twice and recorded an assist for the Huskies.

The matchup came after a 10-day period in which SLP was down seven players due to illness and injury, SLP coach Butch Martin said.
