The Plum varsity ice hockey team snapped a five-game winless streak to begin its 2012-13 PIHL Class AA season and defeated Montour, 4-1, Monday night at the Robert Morris University Island Sports Center.

The Mustangs improved to 1-4-1 on the season, and they will return to action Dec. 3 at 8:20 p.m. against Franklin Regional at the Pittsburgh Ice Arena in New Kensington.

Montour and Plum played to a scoreless first period, but the Mustangs erupted for three straight goals, including two on the power play, to take a 3-0 lead with 1:23 to play until intermission.

The Spartans cut into the lead with a goal 30 seconds until the end of the period, but Plum came back with a goal early in the third period, and the Mustangs defense and senior goaltender Taylor Cestra held Montour off the board the rest of the way.

Joe Randazzo scored a pair of goals, and he now has 10 goals in five games played this season. That total leads all of Class AA.

Andrew Walters and James D'Andrea added scores, while Walters assisted on two goals. Zach Kuhn and Todd Ruggiero also recorded assists.

Cestra faced 28 Montour shots, and she made 27 saves. The Plum offense fired off 28 shots.

Montour fell to 0-3.
