ITHACA, N.Y. - Kayla Strong made 25 saves as Cornell shut out Yale 3-0 Saturday afternoon at Lynah Rink. The Big Red got a pair of power-play goals in the first period and never looked back.
Cornell (4-2-1, 2-1-1 ECAC Hockey) converted on its first power play of the game when forward Karlee Overguard scored an unassisted goal off a wrist shot at 9:32 with only three seconds left in the Yale penalty.
The Big Red added to the lead with a 5-on-3 goal from forward Rebecca Johnston, who flipped in the rebound of her own shot off assists from forward Catherine White and defenseman Amanda Young.
The second period was the lone period in which Yale outshot Cornell, but Strong stopped all 10 Yale shots she faced while freshman goalie Genny Ladiges turned aside eight shots by the Big Red. Each team was scoreless on three power-play opportunities in the frame.
Johnston put the game out of reach with an unassisted goal at 9:17 of the third, grabbing the rebound of her own shot and backhanding it in. Ladiges finished with 34 saves for Yale (2-5-0, 2-4-0 ECAC Hockey).
Yale returns to action Nov. 25 against BU at Ingall Rink at 7:00 p.m.
