Now it was Sophie Kush’s turn to seize the spotlight, scoring one Laker goal and assisting on Michel’s fourth tally of the weekend, which proved to be the game-winner. Madison Singler got the assist on the Kush tally.
Maria McLean took her turn in goal, giving Lupo a much-needed rest. Despite a string of St. Lawrence chances down the stretch, McLean turned them all back, stopping 19 of 20 shots for the day.
All of this leaves the Lakers (7-3-1) with the top Section III seed going into the state tournament, which means it will host Oswego Wednesday night at 7 p.m. in one sectional semifinal. Ithaca and Alexandria Bay meet in the other.
