LEAGUE LEADER TRINITY TOPS COLBY MEN'S HOCKEY, 6-3

WATERVILLE, Maine --- After a big league win over Wesleyan University on Friday night, the Colby College men's hockey team fell 6-3 to league leader Trinity College at Alfond Rink on Saturday.

Liam Mckillop scored with just 11 seconds left in the first period to put Trinity College up 3-1 after Colby College had just scored in what might have been the biggest goal of the game for the Bantams.

Trinity moved to 12-1-1 overall and 7-0-1 in conference play. The Mules dropped to 5-8-2 overall and 2-6-2 in the league.

Trinity struck first on the power play at 4:20 of the opening period when Sean Orlando scored his ninth of the season. Ryan Cole and Michael Flynn had assists on the play.

The Bantams went up 2-0 at 16:14 of the first period on Cole's seventh goal from Michael Hawkrigg and a rare goalie assist from Nathaniel Heilbron.

The Mules made it 2-1 with just 1:46 left in the opening period when Mario Benicky scored his fifth of the year from Colin Reilly and Chris Kennedy.

With the Mules hoping for a 2-1 deficit at the first intermission, Mckillop scored his third of the year from Conor Coveney and Flynn.

The Bantams made it a 4-1 game after two periods when Jackson Brewer scored the lone goal at 2:01.

Colby made a game of it again when Chris Kennedy scored his second goal in two games just 1:58 into the third period. Benicky and Robert McCormick had assists and the Mules cut the lead in half.

The Bantams struck quickly after the Mule score at 3:10 on Hawkrigg's sixth of the season on the 15th assist from Brewer.

The Mules made it a two-goal game at 7:19 when Phil Klitirinos scored his second of the year from Mike Rudolf and Kevin Doherty.

Trinity answered again at 15:16 on Cole's second goal of the game from Tyler Whitney and T.J. Sherman.

Heilbron stopped 27 shots for the Trinity victory. Emerson Verrier played the first two periods in goal for Colby and stopped 16 shots, while Jordan Nathan made 10 saves in the third period.

Two early goals send Big Blue past Skidmore

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- Goals by sophomore David Goff and first-year Christian Rossetti before the midway mark of the 1st period provided all the scoring the University of New England would need to register a 2-0 ECAC East men's ice hockey victory over Skidmore College on Saturday (Jan. 17) at the Saratoga Springs Ice Rink.

The weekend sweep of league outings moves the Nor'easters (6-9-1) to 4-6-1 and into a share of fourth place in the ECAC East standings. The Thoroughbreds step back to 3-12-2 on the year (2-8 ECAC East) with the loss. Big Blue logged a 3-2 overtime win the last time the teams met in November, and have now won the last three against Skidmore.

With 6:57 gone, junior Tom Gildersleeve and sophomore Trevor Fleurent linked passes to find Goff in front for the initial score. Less than two minutes later (8:43), Rossetti doubled the margin off assists by sophomores Danny Antonoff and Chris Harlow.

UNE had a 13-6 advantage in shots during the opening 20 minutes, and that difference nearly held the rest of the way (33-25) while both netminders kept their opponent off the board. For Big Blue senior Colby Drost, the shutout was the third of his career.

Skidmore received 31 saves from Jack McDonald in the contest.

The Nor'easters take a break from league action to visit nationally-ranked Bowdoin College on Tuesday (7 p.m.).

Balance powers No. 2 Norwich past UNE, 6-1

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- Six different players found the back of the net for Norwich University as the nation's second-ranked squad skated to a 6-1 ECAC East men's ice hockey victory over the University of New England on Friday evening (Jan. 23) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

Bouncing back from just their second loss of the year the last time out, the Cadets improve to 15-2-1 overall and 11-0-0 in league action. The Nor'easters slip back to 6-11-1 on the season (4-7-1 ECAC East).

Anthony Flaherty got the visitors going with 3:42 gone in the opening frame, punching home a rebound at the right post off a save. Norwich doubled the margin at the 10:28 mark on the power play, as Gerard McEleney collected a wide shot off the back boards and scored in front.

Just over three minutes later the Cadets cashed in on another man-advantage, when Brian Rowland put a shot from the left point through a screen in the middle and into the upper right corner of the cage.

UNE trimmed the gap to two (3-1) with 1:24 to go before the intermission on a power play goal by Trevor Fleurent. Zeth Zielinski and Jared Melman assisted on the play.

Norwich out-shot the hosts by a 17-9 margin in the 1st period.

The only score of the 2nd stanza came with 4:25 elapsed, as Paul Russell redirected a shot from the blue line off its original path and just inside the right post.

Alec Thieda and Dean Niezgoda registered goals in the latter stages of the 3rd period to provide the final spread. Norwich ended the night on top of a 39-26 cushion in shots, and received offensive support from William Pelletier (4 assists) and Rowland (2 asissts).

Ty Reichenbach upped his personal ledger to 8-0-1 with 25 saves for the Cadets. His counterpart on UNE, Colby Drost, recorded 33 stops.

Norwich heads up the coast to the University of Southern Maine on Saturday (4 p.m.), while the Nor'easters are scheduled for a 2 p.m. match with Saint Michael's College earlier in the afternoon.

#2 Norwich Downs Southern Maine 5-1

GORHAM, Maine -- Rookie goaltender Braeden Ostepchuk (Lethbridge, Alb.) stopped 18 shots and five different players scored goals as the second-ranked Norwich University Cadets defeated the University of Southern Maine Huskies 5-1 in an ECAC Men’s East game Saturday at the USM Ice Arena.

The win was the second straight for the Cadets who improved to 16-2-1 overall and remain undefeated atop the league standings at 12-0-0. The Huskies fell to 4-13-0 overall and 2-10-0 in the league.

Ostepchuk made eight saves on nine shots in the opening period, as the upset-minded Huskies were able to put some pressure on the rookie. After surrendering a goal to USM rookie Alex Pantalone (Hudson, Mass.), Ostepchuk slammed the door on the Huskies, and needed to make only 10 saves over the final two periods.

Sophomore Paul Russell (Andover, Mass.), senior Nevin Lawler (Fitchburg, Mass.) and junior Dean Niezgoda (Brewster, Mass.) each had a goal and an assist for the Cadets. Sophomores Austin Surowiec (Louisville, Ky.) and Brendan Boyce (St. Albans, Vt.) netted the other goals for the Cadets. Sophomore Anthony Flaherty (South Boston, Mass.) picked up a pair of assists.

USM rookie goaltender Kyle Shapiro (Ocean, N.J.) stopped 31 shots, including all 20 he faced in the second period when the Cadets out shot the Huskies 20-4.

Russell gave the Cadets the lead at 5:31 of the opening period when Niezgoda’s centering pass deflected in off his skate. Surowiec made it 2-0 just past the midpoint converting a step-up from sophomores Tyler Piacentini (South Weymouth, Mass.) and Trevor Stewart (Denver, Colo.).

Pantalone pulled the Huskies within one at 15:09 with his fourth goal of the season. Pantalone took a pass from classmate Patrick Magliano (Pelham, N.H.) and picked the top corner over Ostepchuk’s glove hand for his fourth goal of the season. Junior Chad O’Brien (Johnstown, Pa.) earned the second assist with some strong work along the end board.

The second period was all Shapiro as the rookie goaltender frustrated Cadet shooters from all angles to keep it a one-goal game headed into the final period.

Boyce finally solved Shapiro for his fifth goal of the season at 6:00. Flaherty and Lawler picked up the assists.

The Huskies went on a power play midway through the period, but it was the Cadets who would score as Lawler beat Shapiro up high from the right-wing circle making it 4-1. Niezgoda added an empty-net goal from Russell with 1:07 remaining.

Norwich finished the game out shooting Southern Maine 36-19. Neither team was able to convert on the power play as the Cadets went 0 for 5 while the Huskies were 0 for 3.

Southern Maine is back in action on Tuesday (7:00 pm.) traveling to Bowdoin College for a non-league game. Norwich will host New England College next Friday (7:00 p.m.) for an ECAC Men’s East contest.

Southern Maine Edges Colby 3-2

GORHAM, Maine -- Rookie Brett Norman’s (Dawson Creek, B.C.) second goal of the season early in the third period proved decisive as the University of Southern Maine men’s ice hockey defeated Colby College, 3-2, in a non-conference game Saturday night at the USM Ice Arena.

The victory snapped a two-game losing skid for the Huskies and improved their overall record to 5-14-0. The Mules dropped their fourth straight game to slide to 5-11-2 overall.

Junior Chad O’Brien (Johnstown, Pa.) picked the pocket of a Colby defender behind the net and fed a pass to Norman 20 feet out in front. The rookie center snapped his shot past Colby senior goalie Jordan Nathan (Upper Saddle River, N.J.) to give the Huskies a 3-1 lead at the 3:27 mark.

Colby closed to within one four minutes later as sophomore E.J. Rauseo (Methuen, Mass.) found the net for a power-play goal. USM rookie goaltender Matt Michals (Needham, Mass.) stopped the initial shot from the left-wing circle by sophomore Devin Albert (Reading, Mass.), but the rebound wound up on the stick of rookie Cam MacDonald (Westford, Mass.) who fed Rauseo. The goal was the 10th of the season for Rauseo.

The Mules pulled Nathan with 1:11 remaining for the extra attacker, but were unable to get an equalizer to send the game into extra time.

Southern Maine tallied the only goal of the opening period when junior Zach Dymock (Dutton, Ont.) found himself on the receiving end of a deflected pass from senior Lorne Miller (Montreal, Que.) to the right of Nathan. Dymock quickly took advantage of the lucky bounce to score his fifth goal of the season at 2:09.

The teams traded second-period goals to make it 2-1 after 40 minutes. Colby tied the game at 4:34 as rookie Phil Klitirinos (Dollard-Des-Ormeaux, Que.) forced a turnover in the USM zone and fed classmate Michael Rudolf (Zug 6343, Switzerland) for a shot from the left-wing circle that beat Michals.

USM regained the advantage at 11:30 when junior Todd Bannerman (Georgetown, Ont.) circled the net and stuffed in a shot for a power-play goal.

Michals, playing in his first game, stopped 16 shots to earn his first collegiate win. Nathan had 13 saves before heading to the bench for the extra skater.

Southern Maine will play a rescheduled game on Tuesday evening (7:00 p.m.) hosting the University of New England. Colby will be at home for its next two games against Hamilton College on Friday (7:00 p.m.) and Amherst College on Saturday (3:00 p.m.).

UNE Shuts Out Southern Maine 1-0

GORHAM, Maine -- Senior Colby Drost (Franklin Lakes, N.J.) stopped 25 shots to earn his third shutout of the season as the University of New England defeated the University of Southern Maine, 1-0, Tuesday night in an ECAC Men’s East game at the USM Ice Arena.

The win was the second straight for the Nor’easters who improved to 8-11-1 overall and 6-7-1 in league play. The win also gave the Nor’easters a sweep of the teams’ regular-season series for the first time in the history of the series. The Huskies fell to 5-15-0 overall and 2-11-0 in the league. The game was originally scheduled for last Friday (January 30), but was postponed by bad weather.

Drost was sharp in the first period when the Huskies out shot the visitors 12-7, and the final moments after USM pulled rookie goalie Kyle Shapiro (Ocean, N.J.) with 1:51 to play for the extra attacker. Drost stopped an excellent scoring bid from 20 feet out through a screen by senior Stephen Gallo (Barnstead, N.H.) with less than 20 seconds to play to preserve the shutout.

Rookie Christian Rossetti (Marblehead, Mass.) accounted for the only goal of the game in the latter stages of the second period. Rossetti picked up a USM turnover at the blue line, skated in on Shapiro and beat the rookie goaltender for his third goal of the season at 15:51. That proved to be the only scoring in the game as both goalies played well.

Shapiro finished the game with 23 saves. Southern Maine had a slim, 25-24 edge in shots on goal. UNE had the game’s three power plays, and was not whistled for a penalty.

Southern Maine will play its final two regular season home games this weekend hosting nationally ranked UMass Boston on Friday (7:00 p.m.) and Babson College on Saturday (4:00 p.m.). UNE will play Babson on Friday (7:00 p.m.) and UMass Boston on Saturday (4:00 p.m.).

UMass Boston Blanks Southern Maine in Shortened Game

GORHAM, Maine -- The University of Southern Maine-University of Massachusetts Boston men’s ice hockey game came to an abrupt end 7:47 into the third period when a shot shattered a pane of the protective glass behind the USM goal. Under rule, the game was declared official.

UMass Boston junior Peter MacIntyre (Norfolk, Mass.) fired a high shot that shattered the pane of glass behind the USM goal at 7:47 of the third period. After approximately 30 minutes, it was determined that a suitable replacement piece of glass or substitute was not available and that the game could not continue.

The #8/#9 Beacons won their fourth straight game to improve to 18-3-1 overall and 13-2-0 in the league. The Huskies, dropped their second straight to fall to 5-16-0 overall and 2-12-0 in league play.

Prior to the glass breaking, the Beacons had scored a pair of goals to break open a 2-0 game. Junior Connor McStravick (Philadelphia, Pa.) converted a pass from rookie Colin Larkin (Waterford, Mich.) at 1:06 to make it 3-0. Senior Nick Kuhn (Holbrook, Mass.) tallied his 11th goal of the season at 3:52 off a feed from classmate Nick Milam (Westland, Mich.) after Milam forced a turnover behind the USM goal.

In a fast-paced first period, the Beacons scored the only goal with 12 seconds remaining in the period. Junior Matt Lemire (Townsend, Mass.) took a set-up from MacIntyre and senior Stephen Buco (North Providence, R.I.) and buried a short shot for his seventh goal of the season.

Sophomore Albee Daley (Averill Park, N.Y.) added a short-handed goal at 16:17 of the second period to make it 2-0. McStravick and sophomore Sam Boyd (Lake Worth, Fla.) picked up the assists.

UMB junior goalie Billy Faust (Alta Loma, Calif.) stopped 23 shots to earn his first shutout of the season. Rookie Kyle Shapiro (Ocean, N.J.) recorded 30 saves in the USM net.

Southern Maine is scheduled to play Babson College on Saturday (4:00 p.m.). UMass Boston travels to the University of New England on Saturday (4:00 p.m.).

Nor'easters, No. 8 Beavers end in scoreless tie

BIDDEFORD, Maine -- Colby Drost posted 32 saves for the University of New England and Jamie Murray logged 19 stops for No. 8 Babson College in a 0-0 overtime draw in ECAC East League men's ice hockey action Friday evening (Feb. 6) at the Harold Alfond Forum.

Unbeaten in their last three outings (2-0-1), the Nor'easters move to 8-11-2 overall and 6-7-2 in conference matches. The Beavers now stand at 15-4-3 on the year, 10-3-2 in ECAC East dates.

Play was back-and-forth throughout, with Babson simply putting more chances on-target. Over the first 40 minutes, the visitors held a 21-10 cushion in shots, but could not solve Drost in the UNE cage.

Neither side converted on one of the five combined power plays during regulation, sending the game into an extra session. Both teams recorded four shots-on-goal in overtime, with Murray denying the most threatening attempt to keep things level -- a point-blank, one-timer from UNE's Nick Wirth on the left doorstep with 26.3 seconds remaining.

The shutout for Drost was his fourth of the season; for Murray, his fifth.

Big Blue hosts the nation's 9th-ranked squad, the University of Massachusetts Boston (13-2-0 ECAC East), on Saturday at 4 p.m. The Beavers head to face the University of Southern Maine (2-12-0 ECAC East) at the same time.

#8/#11 Babson Blanks Southern Maine 2-0

GORHAM, Maine -- The #8/#11 Babson College men’s ice hockey team used two second-period goals and solid goaltending by junior Jamie Murray (Scituate, Mass.) to defeat the University of Southern Maine, 2-0, Saturday in an ECAC Men’s East game at the USM Ice Arena on Senior Day.

Unbeaten in their last three games, the Beavers improved to 16-4-3 overall and 11-3-2 in league play. The Huskies dropped their third straight to slide to 5-17-0 overall and 2-13-0 in conference play.

The Beavers carried the game to the Huskies who relied upon rookie goalie Kyle Shapiro (Ocean, N.J.) to keep it close. Shapiro stopped 10 shots in each of the first two periods before making 17 saves in the final period for a game total of 37 saves.

After a scoreless first period, the Beavers finally broke through against Shapiro at 11:17 as sophomore Bill Seligman (Toronto, Ont.) converted a set-up from rookie Charlie Ackerman (Bradenton, Fla.) and junior Jimmy Magrath (Medfield, Mass.) into his 12th goal of the season. Seligman found himself 20 feet out in front and fired a wrist shot through a partial screen into the top right corner.

Sophomore Tim Searles (Chesapeake, Va.) made it 2-0 six minutes later when he fired home a rebound for a short-handed goal. Facing a 2-on-1, Shapiro made a right-pad stop of junior Mike Vollmin’s (Wilmington, N.C.) hard drive, but the rebound went right out in the slot to Searles who found the open side of the net for his fifth marker.

Southern Maine had a golden opportunity to climb back into the game in the third period when it wound up on a 5-on-3 power play for 1:23, but the Babson defense protected Murray and the lead killing off both penalties.

Murray earned his sixth shutout of the season, and the 12th of his career, stopping 15 shots. Southern Maine’s best scoring chance came on a tip attempt by freshman Alex Pantalone (Hudson, Mass.) that Murray stuffed in the third period.

Prior to the start of the game, the Huskies took a moment to recognized their four seniors playing their final home game - forward Brad McGovern (Haverhill, Mass.), defenseman Lorne Miller (Montreal, Que.), co-captain forward Stephen Gallo (Barnstead, N.H.) and co-captain forward Sam Guimond (Portland, Maine).

Southern Maine is on the road next weekend for games at Saint Anselm College on Friday (7:00 p.m.) and New England College on Saturday (4:30 p.m.). Babson will be at home against league-leader Norwich University on Friday (7:00 p.m.) and Saint Michael’s College on Saturday (4:00 p.m.).
