Duke 12, North Carolina 8: It was 6-1 in favor of the Tar Heels with 11:47 left in the second quarter, but things changed from there on out. Duke scored six of the following eight goals, before ending the game on a 5-0 run to get the four-goal victory. Justin Guterding scored three of those five goals to end the game, and also recorded three assists. Jack Bruckner had four goals. Danny Fowler didn’t have his best outing, especially in the first half, and finished with six saves. Timmy Kelly and Michael Tagliaferri had two goals each for the Tar Heels, and Brian Balkam made 10 saves. Fetzer Field’s grass appeared to be slippery at times, and it caused some defense to be bad at times.
Penn State 9, Ohio State 4: The first quarter was tied up at two, until Ohio State’s Ryan Terefenko gave their only lead of the game at 3-2 immediately on the opening face-off of the second quarter. Then, Penn State went on a 6-0 run and held the Buckeyes off the scoring sheet until 7:27 left in the game on Tre Leclaire’s second goal of the game. The Nittany Lions were led by Nick Aponte with his goal and two assists, along with Mike Sutton and his pair of goals. Colby Kneese stood tall and stopped 13 shots on goal. Ohio State’s Tom Carey also had a good day in goal, making 12 saves, and Jake Withers went 13-of-17 from the face-off X. Drake Kreinz won four face-offs for the Nittany Lions, and Gerard Arceri went 0-for-4 on the night. Penn State didn’t win a face-off until the second half. But the Buckeyes were very sloppy in the loss, recording 18 turnovers, and nine in the second quarter.
Navy 11, Holy Cross 4: The Midshipmen got a much-needed Patriot League win over Holy Cross, thanks in part to a 5-1 first quarter. After Jon Vogel scored for Holy Cross, Navy went on an 8-0 run, a run that lasted until midway through the third quarter. Matt Rees led the way with a hat-trick, with Greyson Torain (two goals, one assist) and John Trainor (one goal, two assists) also recording three points. Chris Hill scored twice, and Ryan Kern made only six saves in the win. Vogel also added another goal and an assist for the Crusaders, but Jonathan Tesoro made 13 saves.
