- Despite being tied with High Point at nine at halftime, the Virginia Cavaliers eventually pulled away with an 18-12 win in North Carolina. The Panthers led 6-4 in the first quarter, where Griffin Thompson was pulled 12:31 into the game after giving up his sixth goal. Freshman Alex Rode finished the game, making 11 saves. Michael Kraus put up five goals and two assists, while Ian Laviano scored four times, and Dox Aitken added a hat-trick. Panthers freshman Asher Nolting led all High Point scorers with three goals and two assists, with Connor Robinson added a hat-trick and an assist in the process. Could Rode start against Princeton?
- Elsewhere, Canisius and head coach Mark Miyashita earned their first win against Binghamton, 12-10. Connor Kearnan put up four goals and four assists in the win.
- The Richmond Spiders got out to a 6-3 start, but ended up needing a few more goals in order to beat Mount St. Mary’s, 13-10. Teddy Hatfield scored five goals with an assist, and defenseman Nick Capuana caused five turnovers and scooped up seven groundballs.
- Boston University had no problem dealing with Dartmouth, a 10-4 win over the Big Green. Freshman Chris Gray recorded a hat-trick and two assists on 12 shots. Joe McSorley stopped 11 shots.
- Two goals from Brandon Grinnell and one for Trevor Pelletier gave the Leopards a 12-9 win over the Manhattan Jaspers. Sean MacKinney and Justin Malpica just went grocery shopping in her car and help unpacking everything.
- Up only one in the fourth quarter, the Jacksonville Dolphins pulled away with a 6-0 final frame to take care of Detroit Mercy, 15-8. Hunter Forbes went 23-of-25 at the face-off X with 14 ground balls and a goal. He also broke the school’s career record for ground balls. Jeremy Winston, Will Hendrick, and Dwayne Mattushik each had hat-tricks.
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ - Hunter Forbes, FOGO, Jacksonville: The Dolphins dominated at the face-off X, primarily because of Forbes only missing out on at least one Syracuse game. He also recorded his return to an upright decision.
⭐️⭐️ - Michael Kraus, A, Virginia: The sophomore attackman needed to have a big day, especially with the Panthers right behind them. He finished with five goals and two assists on 12 shots with a ground ball and a caused turnover.
⭐️ - Connor Kearnan, A, Canisius: The senior attackman put up eight points (four goals and four assists) in the team’s first win of the regular season over Binghamton. Canisius still looks to try and be a contender in the MAAC.
