Engineers Splits with Dartmouth and Vermont

The RPI Men's Hockey Team almost got swept this weekend on a trip to Dartmouth and Vermont, but managed a split thanks to an overtime goal on Saturday night.

On Friday night, Rensselaer rallied from a 2-0 deficit to a 3-2 third period lead against Dartmouth. The lead was not safe, however, as The Big Green struck for two unanswered goals in the last two minutes of regulation enroute to a 4-3 victory. USCHO reported that Kevin Croxton missed a shot at an open net with five minutes to go in regulation that would have given the Engineers a commanding two goal lead.

Goaltender Nathan Marsters made 31 saves in the loss. Brad Farynuk, Scott Basiuk, and Matt McNeely scored for RPI.

On Saturday, Rensselaer capitalized on the aggressive play of Vermont in overtime and converted an odd-man rush into a Vic Pereira goal. The result was, as USCHO said, "a hard-fought {3-2} road victory over Vermont at sold-out Gutterson Fieldhouse."

Kevin Croxton came back from the frustration of Friday night with a two goal effort on Saturday. Nathan Marsters made 19 saves.

RPI ends the weekend with a 14-10-2 overall record. They're 8-5-1 in ECAC league play.
