Maple Ridge’s Lauren Mallo is off to a strong start to her junior campaign with the Buffalo State Bengals NCAA Division 3 hockey team.

Mallo leads all blueliners on the team in scoring with a pair of assists in four games this season.

In 52 games with the Bengals, Mallo has posted 20 points, including 12 points in 24 games last season.

Mallo was instrumental in the Bengals recent 3-2 win over conference rivals State University of New York-Potsdam on Saturday. Mallo assisted on Christina Zandri’s second goal of the night to help give Buffalo State a 2-0 lead in the first period.

The Potsdam Bears scored in the second period to draw within one, however, the Bengals regained their two-goal cushion early in the final frame.

The Bears mounted a late comeback, scoring with 40 seconds left to play, but Mallo and the Bruins were able to weather the storm as the Bears pulled their goalie and pressed for the equalizer.

The win was the second straight game with an assist for Mallo.

Mallo, who graduated from Thomas Haney secondary, was named to the Eastern College Athletic Conference’s West Division all-academic team last year after posting an impressive 3.15 GPA in her second-year biology program.
