Men's Hockey Splits with Colgate and Cornell
Last Friday, RPI opened the ECAC regular season with a 2-1 road victory over Colgate. Matt Murley and Nolan Graham scored for the Engineers. Sophomore Kevin Kurk made 28 saves in the game, 12 in the third period alone. The next night in Ithaca, streaking Cornell was too much for RPI, winning by a 4-1 score. Nolan Graham scored the only goal of the night for the visitors. Cornell is on a 4 game winning streak to start the season.
This weekend, RPI returns home to meet MAAC conference member Mercyhurst. Last year, RPI beat the Lakers 5-0. The game is Saturday night, 7:00pm, at Houston Field House. As usual, the game will be heard on WRPI, and you can listen from wherever you have an Internet connection, via RealAudio.
