Pereira Lone Bright Spot in Bleak North Country Trip

Freshman Vic Pereira scored two of the Engineers' three goals on their North Country road trip, losing 4-1 to Clarkson, and then losing 5-2 to St. Lawrence.

Friday's game against Clarkson was a physical match. In the middle of the first period, while already down a man, co-captain Steve Munn took a boarding call that resulted in the Knights' first goal. Pereira was able to even the score, only to have Clarkson reply with three unanswered goals.

Saturday saw the Engineers hold close, but never close enough. Entering the third period down 3-1, Pereira's second goal of the weekend restored hope to the Engineer fans. A penalty-ridden third period had many emotional ups and downs ultimately resulting in SLU's fifth goal, an empty-netter.

Other odd circumstances offer sidebars to the weekend. Jayson Moy reported during Friday's WRPI broadcast that senior Francois Senez has left the team due to undisclosed reasons. A post on the USCHO message boards reports that Dan Fridgen neglected to shake the hand of Clarkson head coach Mark Morris during their post game meeting.

I attended both games this weekend and took a number of photographs. Hopefully we will be able to post these soon.

The Engineers attempt to regroup Wednesday night against Union at Achilles Rink in Schenectady, NY.
