RIT (11-14-4, 7-8-0 College Hockey America) senior Mallory Rushton’s goal 49 seconds into the second period was the difference in SU’s (8-19-2, 8-6-1) first conference loss in February. SU nearly doubled RIT in first period shots and controlled possession, winning 12 of 19 faceoffs. Despite the solid start, SU gave up the lead when Rushton broke through. More of the same continued through the second, as Syracuse out-shot the Tigers 17-11 but couldn’t capitalize. Senior Brooke Avery, who had four shots in the game, hit the pipe. SU’s leading scorer Emma Polaski paced the Orange offensively with eight shots on net and four other skaters recorded four chances. Defenseman Allie Munroe launched 18 shots, but only four ended up on goal. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAdy Cohen, making her second straight start in net, stopped 25 shots. She earned CHA Goalkeeper of the Week last week by recording her first shutout of the season against Mercyhurst. As a team, the Orange struggled on power plays, going 0-for-3 on the night. Entering the night, SU led the conference in power play goals per game (0.93). RIT and Syracuse meet again tomorrow night in Tennity Ice Pavilion at 7 p.m.
The people of Tory Island have been inconvenienced this week after the Queen of Aran was temporarily taken out of service.The much-disputed ferry that began running in Spring 2018 has been docked at Magheroarty since Wednesday after a technical issue.It is believed that a rope from a lobster trap got caught in the ferry propellor this week and was later brought to the attention of the MSO Marine Survey Office. The ferry was soon repaired on Wednesday and is now due to undergo a routine MSO inspection. A temporary replacement boat, the Elsie Jayne, was brought in to accommodate passengers. The boat holds 12 passengers, but locals say this is not enough at the height of the summer season.“The Queen of Aran being out of action is impacting hugely on the businesses on the island. The boat was and is not suitable for Tory, which is why the people were protesting,” said one Tory resident.“People can’t get anything in unless they travel with it. If you want anything delivered you have to go to the mainland and bring it with you.”It is expected that the survey of the Queen of Aran will be completed soon, and it will return to regular operation. The fast ferry has not been affected and is running twice-daily as normal.
