It was another weekend full of Non-Ivy action for the ECAC, yet again the talk of the league has to be Colgate. The ECAC seemed to have a better weekend then last, despite some cupcake games.
Clarkson swept Atlantic Hockey’s Sacred Heart this weekend. With scorelines of 3-0 on Friday and 5-2 on Saturday. Leading the way for the Golden Knights was Louke Oakley who had a five goal weekend. Ben Sexton also had a good series with a goal and two assists. Senior Paul Karpowich was in goal for Clarkson in both games.
The Raiders split a weekend series with fifth ranked Miami. The Red hawks took Friday’s contest 4-3 while the Raiders took Saturdays game 3-2 in overtime. Sophomore Chris Wagner led his team with a goal and three assists on the weekend. Look for Colgate to jump up into the national rankings this week.
The Bobcats dominated two games with Canisius, 7-1 on Saturday and 4-0 on Sunday. This may have been the biggest mismatch of the weekend, so the result isn’t that surprising. The Jones twins had a pretty good weekend with Kellen picking up a two points and Connor with three.
RPI had a rough weekend in two games against the Ferris State Bulldogs. The Engineers were shut out twice and had a very hard time shuting down the Bulldog offense. Bryce Merriam was in net for RPI in both games.
The Saints rough start continued this weekend as they lost to Michigan 10-3 on Thursday night and lost a close decision to RIT on Saturday 6-5 in overtime. Junior Kyle Flanagan had four goals and one assist on the weekend for ST. Lawrence. The team will look forward to a large break untill they start league play against Union on November 4th.
The Dutchmen battled Western Michigan with two ties. In a match up of last year’s surprising teams in their respective conferences, neither could put the other away. Jeremy Welsh had three goals on the weekend all coming in Saturday’s 3-3 result.
