COLBY, HAMILTON SETTLE FOR 2-2 TIE IN MEN'S HOCKEY

WATERVILLE, Maine --- Mario Benicky scored both goals for the Colby College men's hockey team, but Hamilton College's Neil Conway scored the lone goal of the third period as the two teams settled for a 2-2 overtime tie Saturday.

The Mules move to 5-12-3 overall and 2-9-3 in the league, while Hamilton is 7-8-5 overall and 5-6-3 in the NESCAC. Colby went 1-0-1 against the Continentals this year, taking a 1-0 road win.

Sam Parker, who had his first collegiate shutout in the 1-0 win earlier this season, made 24 saves for Colby. Tim Nowacki made eight of his 21 saves in the second period for Hamilton.

Benicky took a pass along the left boards from Andrew Reis, beat a defender, and scored on a tough angle at 4:21 of the second period.

Hamilton tied the game exactly nine minutes later when Pat Curtis was sent in on goal and he ripped a quick wrist shot that beat Parker. Bennett Hambrook and Tyler Lovejoy were credited with assists.

With a Colby power play just ending, the Mules took a 2-1 lead when Benicky scored his eighth of the season when he one-timed a centering pass from right in front of the goal. Devin Albert had his 12th assist and Michael Decker his sixth assist on the play.

Conway was all alone in front of the goal when he took a pass and immediately fired the puck in the net. Curtis and Robbie Murden both had their 14th assist on the tying goal.

Both teams struggled on the power play and each squad had a chance with the man advantage in the final 10 minutes of regulation.

COLBY'S RAUSEO A SEMIFINALIST FOR CONCANNON AWARD

WATERVILLE, Maine --- Colby College sophomore forward EJ Rauseo (Methuen, Mass.) is a semifinalist for the 15th Annual Joe Concannon Award, presented annually to the best American-born college hockey player in New England at the Division II/III level.

Rauseo is one of 18 student-athletes and eight New England Small College Athletic Conference players to earn the semifinal honor.

"This cadre of 18 semifinalists is the largest group we have ever included for consideration," said Tim Costello, the Gridiron Club Hockey Awards Committee chairman. "This list reflects the high level of play and talent found across the conferences in New England.

Rauseo is second on the Mules in scoring with 10 goals and 13 assists for 23 points. He has four power play goals and one short-handed tally. Rauseo has 15 goals and 19 assists for 34 career points in 45 games.

In the latest NESCAC statistics, Rauseo is tied for first in short-handed points (2), tied for fifth in scoring, tied for sixth in assists, tied for sixth in power play goals, and tied for ninth in power play points (8).

Greg Osborne '07 earned the Concannon Award for Colby in 2007. He was the NESCAC Player of the Year that season and finished his career with 105 points (48 goals, 57 assists).

Rauseo is one of nine forwards up for the award. The rest of the NESCAC nominees include: Sean Dougherty of Williams, Craig Kitto of Williams, Aaron Deutsch from Amherst, Jackson Brewer of Trinity, Ryan Cole of Trinity, Michael Flynn of Trinity, and Bowdoin's Connor Quinn. Brewer was the award winner in 2014,

The Gridiron Club of Boston plans to announce the finalists and winner of the award in March. The award will be presented during the New England Hockey Writers dinner in April.

Saint Anselm Edges Southern Maine 2-1

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Senior Joey Agliato (Hauppauge, N.Y.) scored early in the third period to break a 1-1 tie and the Saint Anselm College Hawks held off the University of Southern Maine Huskies for a 2-1 victory in ECAC Men’s East action Friday night at Sullivan Arena.

The Hawks, unbeaten in their last four games (3-0-1), improved to 9-12-3 overall and 7-8-2 in league play. The Huskies dropped their fourth straight game to fall to 5-18-0 overall and 2-14-0 in ECAC East games.

Agliato potted the game winner at 3:44 when he received a pass from junior Bryan Sullivan (Burlington, Mass.) and deposited the puck behind USM rookie goalie Kyle Shapiro (Ocean, N.J.) for his third goal of the season. Sophomore Brendon Kerrigan (Boston, Mass.) also earned an assist.

Despite being out shot 20-2 in the third period, the Huskies managed to lift Shapiro for the extra attacker with 1:25 to play, but were unable to get an equalizer to force the game into extra time.

The teams played a scoreless first period with the Hawks piling up a 17-6 edge in shots on goal, but Shapiro kept the Huskies level with the Hawks.

Saint Anselm senior Johnny Daniels (Andover, Mass.) broke the scoreless deadlock at 3:00 of the second period when he broke up a USM play at the blue line and skated in alone on Shapiro to tally an unassisted short-handed goal.

Five minutes later, junior Bob Ganley (Weymouth, Mass.) got the Huskies even with a power-play goal. Ganley traded passes with classmate Daniel Mattsson (Uppsala, Sweden) before beating Saint Anselm rookie goalie Shane Joyce (Pembroke, Mass.) for his first collegiate goal. The goal snapped a long scoreless drought for the Huskies.

Shapiro finished the game recording 43 saves before heading for the bench for the extra skater. Joyce made 16 saves to earn his ninth win of the season. Saint Anselm had a 45-17 advantage in shots

Southern Maine will play at New England College on Saturday (4:30 p.m.). Saint Anselm finishes the regular season on Saturday (4:00 p.m.) hosting the University of New England.

Southern Maine Ties with New England College 1-1

HENNIKER, N.H. -- Freshman goalie Matt Michals (Needham, Mass.) made 32 saves in his second career start to backstop the University of Southern Maine Huskies to a 1-1 overtime tie against the New England College Pilgrims in an ECAC Men’s East game Saturday at Lee Clement Arena.

The tie leaves the Huskies with a 5-18-1 overall record and a 2-14-1 mark in league play with one game to play. The Pilgrims closed the regular season with a 9-11-5 mark overall and a 6-9-3 record in the league.

Michals only surrendered a second-period goal to rookie Joe Osaka (Tokyo, Japan) while facing 33 shots. He made 11 saves in the third period and one in the overtime to preserve the tie.

Southern Maine grabbed a 1-0 lead at 14:03 of the first period when rookie Patrick Magliano (Pelham, N.H.) scored his first career goal from senior Sam Guimond (Portland, Maine) and sophomore Todd Bannerman (Georgetown, Ont.).

Southern Maine had a golden opportunity to double its lead late in the first period when it was awarded a penalty shot. Freshman Brett Norman (Dawson Creek, B.C.) made the attempt against NEC sophomore goalie Brett Kilar (Coto de Caza, Calif.), but was foiled. Kilar registered 23 saves for the game.

Osaka netted a power-play goal at 14:36 of the second period, converting from juniors Kyle Manlow (Murretta, Calif.) and Cheyne Matheson (Wheatley, Ont.). The goal was the fifth of the season for Osaka.

Southern Maine has a make-up game on Monday (5:00 p.m.) at Castleton State College. New England College will be the sixth seed for the upcoming ECAC Men’s East tournament.

Southern Maine Rallies to Down Castleton State 5-3

RUTLAND, Vt. -- Senior Lorne Miller (Montreal, Que.) broke a 3-3 tie with 7:33 remaining and the University of Southern Maine men’s ice hockey team tacked on an empty-net goal to defeat Castleton State College 5-3 in an ECAC Men’s East game Monday evening at Spartan Arena. The game was the regular season finale for both teams.

The Huskies concluded the season 6-18-1 overall and 3-14-1 in league play. The win was the Huskies first on the road against the Spartans since 2006. The Spartans finished 10-15-0 overall and 8-10-0 in ECAC games. The game was originally scheduled for January 17, but had to be rescheduled when the ice-resurfacing machine broke down prior to the game.

Miller fired home the rebound of a shot taken by sophomore Todd Bannerman (Georgetown, Ont.) for his second goal of the season. Senior Stephen Gallo (Barnstead, N.H.) picked up the second assist.

Rookie Brett Norman (Dawson Creek, B.C.) added the unassisted empty netter with 11 seconds remaining to secure the win.

After a scoreless period, Castleton took a 2-0 lead in the opening three minutes of the second period. Junior Will Laking (Orilla, Ont.) found the net for his ninth goal of the campaign at 39 seconds, and rookie Simon Teodorsson (Taberg, Sweden) made it 2-0 at 2:26.

The Huskies cut into the deficit in half almost immediately as Bannerman, set up by Gallo and rookie Alex Pantalone (Hudson, Mass.), scored his fourth at 3:41.

For the second straight game, the Huskies were awarded a penalty shot after a Castleton player covered the puck in the crease area. Junior Daniel Mattsson (Uppsala, Sweden) was successful against Spartan rookie goalie Ryan Mulder (Ottawa, Ont.) to tie the game at 2-2. It was Mattsson’s first goal of the season.

USM scored its third straight goal early in the final period to take the lead. Junior Chad O’Brien (Johnstown, Pa.) tallied his fifth goal of the season assisted by rookie Victor Ivarsson (Stockholm, Sweden) and senior Sam Guimond (Portland, Maine).

The Huskies lead lasted just over a minute as senior Brian Greene (Falmouth, Maine) intercepted a pass and went in on a breakaway to score a short-handed goal against USM rookie goalie Matt Michals (Needham, Mass.) and tie the game at 3-3. That would be the only shot to get past Michals as Castleton out shot USM 18-10 in the period.

The Huskies gave each of their three goaltenders a period of work. Rookie Kyle Shapiro (Ocean, N.J.) started and made nine saves in the opening period. Classmate Nate DelGiudice (Oakland, Maine) played the middle period making 12 saves. Michals got the win after making 17 saves in the final period. Mulder finished the game stopping 23 shots.

Southern Maine will be the eighth seed for the upcoming ECAC Men’s East Tournament that starts this Saturday. The Huskies will face top-seeded Norwich University. Castleton will be the fourth seed and host the University of New England on Saturday.

Shapiro Named to ECAC East All-Rookie Team

GORHAM, Maine -- The Eastern College Athletic Conference announced its annual ECAC Men’s East postseason awards and all-conference teams Thursday following voting by the league’s ten head coaches, and University of Southern Maine freshman goalie Kyle Shapiro (Ocean, N.J.) was among the seven players named to the All-Rookie team.

Shapiro is the 13th USM player, and fourth goalie, to be named to the All-Rookie team since the 1999-2000 season. Shapiro shared the goaltender position on the All-Rookie team with Ryan Mulder of Castleton State College.

A workhorse in goal for the Huskies this season, Shapiro played 1,283 minutes in 23 games this season compiling a 3.46 goals against average, a .901 save percentage and a 4-18-0 record. He recorded 30 or more saves on 11 occasions, topped by a 44-save effort against Saint Michael’s College in November. Shapiro was named the ECAC Men’s East Rookie of the Week for the opening week of the season.

The Huskies (6-18-1; 3-14-1) are the eighth seed for the ECAC Men’s East Tournament that begins Saturday. The Huskies will face the top-seeded Cadets of Norwich University (21-3-1; 17-1-0) in a quarterfinal round game Saturday (7:00 p.m.).

TUFTS MEN'S HOCKEY DEFEATS COLBY, 4-1

WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College men's hockey team scored the first goal of the game in the second period, but Tufts University had the final four in a 4-1 win over the Mules in NESCAC men's hockey Friday night at Alfond Rink.

Tufts scored three goals in a 1:10 span of the second period and secured a playoff spot for the first time since 2012 with the win.

Neither team had an edge in play when Tufts suddenly broke the game open with three goals. Bill Sellers scored his second of the season on a transition goal at 11:41, with assists from Mike Leary and Brian Ouellette.

The Jumbos scored the game-winning goal just 13 seconds later on Stewart Bell's sixth of the year. Tyler Voigt had his 11th assist and Conal Lynch his seventh for the Mules. Bell, alone in front of the goal, had to reach for a pass and then ripped a shot.

With Tufts skating with confidence, Matt Pugh made it three goals in 1:10 with his seventh of the year at 12:51. Scott Majkowski and Brian Brown had assists on the play.

Brown closed out the scoring and got an insurance goal with 5:20 gone in the third period. Majkowski had his second assist of the game and Mike Leary added his fourth

Norwich Shuts Out Southern Maine 4-0

NORTHFIELD, Vt. -- The top-seeded Norwich University Cadets scored four unanswered goals in a span of 7:49 during the third period to defeat the upset-minded University of Southern Maine Huskies, 4-0, Saturday night at Kreitzberg Arena in the quarterfinal round of the ECAC Men’s East Tournament.

The Cadets, ranked #2/#3 nationally, improved to 22-3-1 overall and will host a semi-final round game next Saturday against fourth-seed Castleton State College. Castleton advanced with a 3-2, come-from-behind overtime victory over fifth-seeded University of New England. The Huskies concluded their season at 6-19-1 overall.

Despite piling up a 30-9 edge in shots on goal through the first two periods, the Cadets found themselves locked in a scoreless tie with the eighth-seeded Huskies heading into the final period. USM rookie goaltender Kyle Shapiro (Ocean, N.J.) stood tall stopping all 30 shots and getting help from his teammates who blocked 18 more over the first 40 minutes.

The Cadets finally broke through against Shapiro when senior Alec Thieda (Rochester Hills, Mich.) put the home side on the board at 7:03 as he tallied his third goal of the season. Thieda’s shot banked off a USM defender’s skate and past Shapiro.

Three minutes later, rookie Justin Charbonneau (Bromont, Quebec) doubled the Cadets advantage when he tallied his fifth goal of the campaign. Charbonneau fired home the rebound of a shot from rookie Alec Brandup (Rochester, Minn.) after Shapiro stopped Brandup’s drive from the blue line.

Sophomore Tyler Piacentini (South Weymouth, Mass.) added a 5-on-3 power-play goal at 13:06, and sophomore Cody Smith (Hudson, Mass.) closed the scoring at 17:52.

Norwich sophomore goalie Tyler Reichenbach (Billings, Mont.) earned his third shutout of the season making 12 saves. Shapiro finished the game with 38 saves before being lifted with 1:34 to play for the extra attacker.

CONN COLLEGE MEN'S HOCKEY DEFEATS MULES, 4-1

WATERVILLE, Maine --- EJ Rauseo scored his 11th goal of the season for Colby College, but Connecticut College opened up a 3-0 lead after one period on the way to a 4-1 victory in New England Small College Athletic Conference men's hockey Saturday at Alfond Rink.

The Camels (13-9-2 overall, 10-7-1 NESCAC) will host a NESCAC quarterfinal game next Saturday. Colby, which honored its seniors before the game, ends the season at 5-16-3 overall and 2-13-3 in conference play.

The eventual game-winning goal came off the stick of Adam Patel just 59 seconds later. Patel had his second of the season and Zach Jones had his second assist on the play.

The Camels went up 3-0 after one period when Joe Giordano scored his sixth goal at 15:20 from Ryan Mowery and Greg Liautaud. Mowery had his ninth assist this season and Liautaud his fifth.

The Mules held Conn College without a goal for nearly 40 minutes, but could manage just one goal during that time. EJ Rauseo had his 11th goal of the season at 9:25 of the third from Cam MacDonald's ninth assist.

Giordano clinched the victory at 15:53 with his seventh goal. JC Cangelosi had his 10th assist and Mason Evans added his sixth.

Tom Conlin played in goal for the Camels and finished with 26 saves. Colby had a 27-25 shot advantage. Senior goalies Sam Parker (14 saves) and Jordan Nathan (7 saves) split time for Colby.

Marcotte tips Spartans into league semifinals

RUTLAND, Vt. -- Corbin Marcotte's redirection out of mid-air on a shot from the point with three minutes gone in overtime lifted fourth-seeded Castleton State College to a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over fifth-seeded University of New England in the quarterfinals of the 2015 ECAC Men's East League Ice Hockey Championship Saturday evening (Feb. 21) at Spartan Arena.

The Spartans (11-15) advance into the semifinal round to face the top seed, Norwich University, next Saturday. The nationally-ranked Cadets moved on with a 4-0 shutout of the University of Southern Maine.

Big Blue concludes the 2014-15 campaign with a record of 9-14-2.

Facing a 2-0 deficit in the early stages of the 3rd period, Castleton State got one back a few seconds into a power play at the 6:16 mark. Brian Greene hammered home a shot from the right point through a screen in front.

Spartans goalie Ryan Mulder kept the one-goal margin in-check about two minutes later, splitting back through his crease for a left-pad save as a UNE breakaway cut through the middle and attempted to finish on the right doorstep.

CSC then tied it up with 10:23 to play, as Trevor Hanna chased down a chip into the left corner and fired a tough-angle shot inside the far post.

The game-winning play came when Tyler Gaudry flipped the puck towards the cage from the right point, and Marcotte waved his stick at waist level to send it on a new path into the net.

Mulder finished with 33 stops to preserve the win. His counterpart on the other end, UNE senior Colby Drost, made 24 saves.

The Nor'easters struck first on the power play with 3:51 left in the opening frame, when senior Jared Melman ripped a shot out near the blue line into a crowd, and classmate Zeth Zielinski poked in the rebound in front.

UNE doubled the cushion 1:19 into the 2nd stanza, as junior Tom Gildersleeve controlled a long rebound in the right circle and hit the open cage. Sophomore Trevor Fleurent cleared the defensive zone down the left wing and put a slapper on-target from the left dot, forcing Mulder into action that then had him out of position for the follow-up.

Fleurent also had the secondary assist on Big Blue's first goal; junior Ben Pearl factored in the scoring of the second.
