RRRRUUUUTTTTTGGGGGEEEEERRRRRSSSSS! Huge win for the Scarlet Knights as they defeated Michigan, 13-6 on a sunny and cool afternoon in Piscataway, NJ. Rutgers is now on its second 4-game winning streak in 2016 and the win gives RU its second B1G win (2-0). The Scarlet Knights have scored 50 goals in their 4 wins since their 10-7 loss to Princeton back on March 14th, while holding opponents to a little over 7 goals/game.
This one was actually quite close through two quarters. Michigan went into halftime only down 5-3 and into the 4th quarter down 8-6. However, Rutgers would go on to outscore Michigan 5-0 in the 4th quarter to run away with it at the end. RU's Jules Heningburg (5 goals) dropped a hat-trick in the second half, and super senior Scott Beida contributed with 2 Gs and 4 As. Kris Alleyne was excellent in goal, as he made 13 saves and held Michigan to only 1 goal in the 2nd and 4th combined.
Michigan's Ian King had a good game with 2 Gs and 1 A. Additionally, Brad Lott was big for the Wolverines as he won 16/23 faceoffs. Michigan hung with Rutgers, especially in the 1st and 3rd. However, the Wolverines were unable to stop Rutgers in the 4th as the Scarlet Knights had too much firepower in the final quarter.
