MIDDLEBURY — In a Saturday duel of top NCAA Division III women’s college hockey teams, visiting No. 2 Plattsburgh edged No. 3 Middlebury, 4-3, denying Panther coach Bill Mandigo his 500th career victory in the process.
Mandigo’s team will look for that milestone victory this Saturday at 3 p.m. in a NESCAC quarterfinal at Chip Kenyon Arena, when the top-seeded Panthers (18-3-3, 13-1-2 NESCAC) host No. 8 Hamilton (10-10-4, 4-9-3 NESCAC).
If the Panthers win, they will host the NESCAC final four the following weekend.
