Notable Game Recaps
Manhattan 14, Hartford 13 (2OT): HIT IT WHITNEY!
A six-goal first quarter by Hartford wasn’t enough for the defending America East champions to get their first win of the regular season. Parker Giarratana had five goals and two assists on the afternoon, including the game’s last three.
Matt Garvey also recorded a hat-trick as well, and Michael Zingaro made 12 stops. For Hartford, Griffin Feiner led the way with three goals and two assists, while Dylan Jinks and Justin Huggins also had three goals each. Dylan Protesto went 18-for-28 from the face-off X with 12 ground balls, while Evan Quinn made 13 saves on the day.
Fairfield 8, UMass Lowell 7: Well, this was the scariest game of the day that didn’t become an upset. The game was even throughout, but goals from Colin Burke and Travis Ford in a span of 2:30 late in the game proved to be the difference maker for the Stags. Ford finished the day with two goals, along with Dylan Beckwith. Will Fox went 14-of-19 from the face-off X, and Brad Nordstrom made 10 saves. Sean Tyrell had a hat-trick and an assist for the Riverhawks, while Grant Lardieri made 16 stops, including nine in the second quarter.
Dartmouth 11, Vermont 9: LOLOLOLOL! On Saturday, Dartmouth fans were calling for Brendan Callahan to leave and bring back former coach Andy Towers. Well, I guess Callahan took that hard and made his players play Tuesday. Richie Loftus had a team-high five goals, while Wiley Osborne had five assists. Cameron Nolting had a hat-trick, while George Christopher made 17 saves. For Vermont, it were the usual suspects. Ben French had a game-high seven points (five goals, two assists), and Cam Milligan also contributed with two goals and two assists. Nick Washuta also made 17 saves.

Villanova 15, Drexel 13: The Dragons led for the majority of the game, but a late Wildcat comeback gave Villanova their first win of the regular season.

Jack Curran had two goals and three assists, while Devin McNamara added three dishes of his own. Nick Testa was credited with the win after stopping four shots but giving up 10 goals in 47:16 of game time.
