Clinton girls hockey team earns road win


GLENS FALLS — Kelsey Fuller scored the second of her two goals with less than five minutes remaining in regulation to help the Clinton girls hockey team edge Adirondack United 3-2 on Monday at the Glens Falls Recreation Center.

It was the sixth goal of the season for Fuller, a junior forward. She got assists assists from Alexa Thompson and Abigail Dicks to help Clinton (5-2 overall) get past the new Section II team that features players from multiple districts. That’s similar to the Warriors’ program.

It is believed to be Adirondack United’s first loss of the season. The team was 5-0 at the end of December, the Glens Falls Post Star reported.

Fuller had given the team a 2-1 lead in the second before a goal in the third period by Adirondack evened the game.

Clinton coach Rob Kopek said his team was outshot 15-5 in the first period and standout sophomore Casey Clausen helped keep the Warriors in the game.

She finished with 29 saves and kept the game from getting “ugly” for Clinton early. It was Clausen’s 18th career win. She became the program’s winningest goalie in Clinton’s last game on Dec. 13 against Oswego.

Sophomore Lauren Rey tapped in a rebound late in the first period following a 2-on-1 chance by Drew Kopek and Alyssa Nardslico.

Kopek said the team is “finally healthy,” with top-six freshman forward Kate Elbrecht playing her first game Monday.

Clinton has a big game at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Section III rival Skaneateles. A win for Clinton would make the team 3-0 against the two other teams in Section III and put them in good shape to claim the top seed for the postseason. The NYSPHSAA’s regional championship is scheduled for mid-February at Utica’s Nexus Center.
