Lake Placid falls in girls' hockey

LAKE PLACID — Kalie Grant and Kady Hart both had three-point nights as Potsdam beat Lake Placid 5-3, Monday, in North Country girls’ hockey action.

Six minutes into the second period, Grant broke the tie with help from Sierra Gagnon and Ally Miller. The Blue Bombers answered with a Kendra Manning tally. Potsdam regained the second period lead when Megan Stevenson scored.

Miller scored the fifth and final goal for Potsdam in the third period.
