Disallowed Goal Early in the Third Period Sets the Stage for RPI Loss to Providence

Early in the third period of Sunday night's game against Providence College, Rensselaer had a potential game tieing goal disallowed because the officials ruled that the goal net had been dislodged from its moorings. Moments later, Providence sophomore Nate Meyers scored an insurance goal, and the Friars went on to win 5-2. The game was played at Schneider Arena in Providence before a crowd of only 921.

Kirk MacDonald staked RPI to an early 1-0 lead. Ryan Shields scored the other goal for the Engineers. Nathan Marsters made 23 saves in the game.

The team returns to Troy for its home opener on Friday night against UConn. Faceoff is at 7:00pm.
