Slebodnick, Cornell women fall short in NCAAs
It was not to be for Manchester's Lauren Slebodnick and her Cornell University women's hockey teammates.
Slebodnick made 34 saves, but the Big Red dropped a 3-2 decision to Mercyhurst in an NCAA quarterfinal contest on Saturday in Ithaca, N.Y. Mercyhurst thus advanced to the women's Frozen Four at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn.
Slebodnick was in nets when Cornell blanked Clarkson 1-0 in the ECAC tournament final.
The Big Red finished 24-6-4.
