Catholic rolled to a 7-0 win over Platt- sburgh High School Wednesday night at the Stafford Ice Arena. \I expected maybe a 2-1 or 3-2 game,\ Seton coach Mike Dan-, drow said. \I think we caught Plattsburgh sleeping tonight, arid I told our guys that it won't hap- pen again.\ The Knights, 4-0 overall, im- proved their CVAC record to 3-0, while the Hornets fell to 1-1 in the league and 2-3-1 overall. \We have to regroup,\ Hornets' coach Scott Waite said. \Seton was quick to the puck, and we've got some things to work on. \We were pumped up and ready to play. But we'll just have to learn from this game, and I'll make some adjustments.\ Seton grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first period. John Dionne jumped on a loose puck at 3:23 and beat PHS netminder Bob Pooler to open the scoring. At 13:01 of the first, Tim Barcomb tapped the puck from underneath Pooler and into the net to make it 2-0. It didn't get any better for the Hornets in the second when Nate Thume passed the puck to Joe Munn, who went in alone on a breakaway at 3:06 to give Seton a 3-0 advantage. Late in the stanza at 14:13, Frechette took a centering pass from Jim Jennings off a two-on- one for.the.fourth Seton goal. Dean Nephew, Frechette and Shawn Flanagan finished off the Knights' scoring in the third. Nephew, off a feed from Kris Boissey, tallied a short-handed goal when his hard slapshot dinged off the post, off Pooler and back into the net. ' Frechette's second goal came off a deflection in front of the Plattsburgh net, and\ Flanagan tallied off a centering pass from Corey Black. Kyle Snide and Neale Gibbons, Plattsburgh defenders Jason Breyette (11) and Gus Terry (5) forward Wednesday night. The Knights skated to a 7-0 win. Staff Photo/Mike Dowd put the squeeze on a Seton Catholic who took over at 11:12 of the third, recorded the shutout in net for the Knights. Seton held a 23-21 advantage in shots on goal. \Kyle (Snide) made the saves when he had to,\ Dandrow said. \And Bob Pooler made some good saves for them. I felt we scored some guality goals. \I think our play carried over from the night before (a 5-3 vic- tory over Essex Junction). Essex had a real good' line, and we played well in all aspects of the game. We did the same tonight.\ The Hornets lost the services of leading scorer Matt Meyers to a knee injury late in the first period. Ron Parmeter also suf- fered a mild coiicussion. in the contest. - Plattsburgh is off this weekend, while Seton Catholic takes part in the Albany Academy Tournament. \We have four games in a Ratelle explosion leads Redskins CHAMPLAIN - Ryan Ratelle had four goals, including three in the third period, and added two assists Wednesday as Saranac Lake rallied to down Nor- theastern Clinton, 7-5, in.Cham- plain Valley Athletic Conference hockey.

Cards rank in NCAA stats high By TIM REYNOLDS Staff Writer PLATTSBURGH - The first NCAA Division III statistical packages for the basketball and ice hockey seasons have been released, and Plattsburgh State Univer- sity is well-represented. Men's Basketball Sophomore forward Bryant Butler's 28.2 points per game ranks him second in Division III, composed of more than 300 schools and nearly 4,000 players. Butler only trails Grinnell College senior Ed Brands, who is pumping in 32.7 points each outing. \Bryant's putting up All- American numbers, no ques- tion about it,\ head coach Larry Cowan said. \If he con- tinues at this pace he's a le- gitimate candidate to be an All-American. Statistics are sometimes deceptive, but the results of his efforts are ob- vious.\ In addition, freshman guard Dennis Turner is ninth in assists, at 7.5 per game. Turner's numbers place him second in assists among freshmen. \Dennis not only sees the floor well but he sees some pretty good people in front of him to get the ball to,\ Cowan said. \I'm just pleased with the way he's running the team and passing the ball, as well as the way he's defending and making steals . . . he's doing the little things that are nec- essary in a big-way.\ Also, the team is averaging 8.3 3-point goals per game, 19th-best nationwide. Men's Ice Hockey Ranked sixth in the Divi- sion III East polls, the Cardi- nals have two individuals making news on the national scale as well. Senior Stephan Bourbon- nais is 19th nationwide in assists per game (1.17) and is tied for third in power-play goals with five. Fellow senior Jeff Azar is tied for fourth in shorthanded goals with two, and Azar's four-goal performance against Buffalo State on Nov: 17 has been bettered by just one other person this season. Pittsburgh's power-play unit is ranked 10th in .the country, scoring on 25.4 per- cent of its advantages. Also, the Cards' 10-goal ex- plosion against Fredonia Nov. 18 is tied for eighth in team one-game scoring to date, and only six other players have re- corded more assists in one game than Mike D'Amelio, who had four against Brockport Dec. 1. Women's Basketball The Cardinals are off to a tough start, but senior guard Monica Rodriguez is still lighting up the Scoreboard. Rodriguez's 20.6 points per game places her 15th in the Division III ranks, and her 2.6 3-point goals per game is 21st-best nationwide. \\I think that Mbni deserves everything she gets. She works very hard,\ women's basketball coach Phoebe Sturm said. \Shejearned a big lesson last year. She's matured a lot this year and is coming into her own. She re- alizes this is her last year of playing organized basketball, per se, and she's making the most of it.\ NlCrHT 5:00PM TO 8:00PM -VW Everyone deceives A 35Sq.FtRoUof Jutt for Attending!
