Game Recaps

Lehigh 15, Princeton 10: This provided the only upset of the night, as the Mountain Hawks used two different five-goal runs to go ahead early of the Tigers in the first half. Lehigh went 10-1 with 12:31 left in the third quarter before Princeton decided to start to make things a little interesting of late. Tristan Rai had a hat-trick and two assists to lead Lehigh, with Ian Strain adding two goals and three assists as well. The trio of Lucas Spence, Cody Triolo, and Andrew Pettit each recorded two goals and one assist, while keeper Donny Stires made 13 saves. Gavin McBride had a hat-trick and an assist, while Michael Sowers contributed with one goal and three assists on the day. Zach Currier added a goal and two assists, and went 13-of-19 from the face-off X with seven ground balls.

Currently at 7-4, I think this game probably takes Princeton out of at-large contention. The Ivy League really looks like a one-bid league with about three-and-a-half weeks until Selection Sunday.

Notre Dame 11, Marquette 10: This game almost shook the Notre Dame faithful today. After leading the Golden Eagles 6-2 after the first quarter, Notre Dame let the Big East foe claw back, resulting in a four-goal run with nearly eight minutes left to tie the game up at 10. The deadlock was lifted when Sergio Perkovic scored his career-high sixth goal with 25 seconds left to give the Irish the win. Mikey Wynne had two goals for Notre Dame, and Shane Doss stopped 12 shots. On Marquette, Joseph Dunn scored four times and assisted on another goal, Tanner Thompson dished out three apples to go with his goal, and Cole Blazer made eight saves. FOGO Zachary Melillo went 18-of-25 against P.J. Finley and John Travisano Jr.

Syracuse 15, Cornell 8: After Cornell got off to a 4-2 first quarter lead, the Orange racked up 10 straight goals and got revenge from last year’s overtime loss in Ithaca. The Orange had a 4-0 second and a 6-1 third quarter, as they found their stride after an early struggle. Jordan Evans was one of three Cuse players to earn a hat-trick and had two apples, while Nick Mariano and Nate Solomon had hat-tricks as well. Sergio Salcido had a trio of assists, Stephen Rehfuss had a pair of goals and assists, and Ben Williams went 19-of-25 against the Big Red, a vintage performance from the senior. Kason Tarbell had a hat-trick.


What’s Next?

Maryland travels to Albany to take on the Great Danes later this afternoon at 4 pm on ESPN3. This was previously rescheduled from early March due to very cold conditions in the Capital District.
