RPI Men's Hockey Swept by Union in Home-at-Home Series
The RPI Men's Hockey Team lost two games to Union College this weekend. On Friday night, RPI gave up goals in the last minute of the second and the first minute of the third periods en route to a 5-4 home loss. Saturday, Union jumped out to a 3-0 lead and hung on for a 3-2 victory.
There are two reasons that this sweep is particularly upsetting:
- This is the first time since Union joined ECAC Division I that they have swept the season series from RPI.
- Union College President Roger Hull voted against RPI, Clarkson, St. Lawrence, and the other Division I play up schools on Proposition 65-1. He showed a callousness toward our tradition that should be remembered each time we meet Union on the playing field.
