Ice Hockey slips in ECAC

The men’s ice hockey team had a disappoint-ing set of games away from Starr Rink this week-end. On Friday, November 9, the Raiders played the Quinnipiac Bobcats, to whom they lost 2-3 in overtime. The next day, November 10, the Princeton Tigers defeated Colgate 4-0.

During the game at Quinnipiac, the Bobcats scored the first goal of the game during a power play at 8:08. However, seconds later at 8:25, the Raiders retaliated with a goal shot by sophomore defenseman Spiro Goulakos, assisted by first-year Ryan Johnston. Senior captain Thomas Larkin managed to shoot another goal at 9:39, assisted by senior Robbie Bourdon. Colgate was thus able to end the first period with a 2-1 lead.

Quinnipiac shot another goal during the sec-ond period, and the third period ended without goals from either side. Junior goaltender Eric Mi-halik played well, protecting the net from a total of 37 shots on goal, whereas Colgate ended regulation time with only 10 shots on the Quinnipiac goal. The Bobcats and Raiders entered overtime, during which Quinnipiac was able to score for the win.

At Princeton, the Raiders were handed a crippling 4-0 loss.

Princeton’s first goal was at 19:46 of the first period, during a power play. The Tigers added an-other goal at 1:24 of the second period. The final two goals were shot during the third period, at 7:37 and 8:57, respectively.

First-year Spencer Finney played goalie for Col-gate. While playing only his second game in college hockey, Finney received a total of 35 shots on goal, and his protection of the goal kept the Tigers from scoring more. The Raiders delivered the Princeton goalie a total of 22 shots on goal, but, despite their chances, were unable to score.

This weekend, the Raiders return to Starr Rink for two home games. On Friday, November 16, at 7 p.m., Colgate will play the Dartmouth Big Green, and on Saturday, November 17, again at 7 p.m., they will take on the Harvard Crimson.
