RPI Sweeps North Country Trip for First Time Since 1985
Congratulations to the Men's Hockey Team who won both games on the trip to St. Lawrence and Clarkson for the first time in 20 years. On Friday night, the Engineers snapped a five game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over St. Lawrence. Vic Pereira had a goal and an assist and Andrew Martin made 32 saves for the win. With this victory Rensselaer broke a five-game losing streak.
Saturday, RPI made Clarkson pay for backing out of the Satellite Hockey Game by beating the Golden Knights 4-3 in their own building. Four different players scored for Rensselaer. Andrew Martin led the way again with 20 saves.
Coach Dan Fridgen said of this weekend's effort, "It's a seven-goal weekend for us and with Andrew (Martin) playing real solid and with everyone pitching in we came up with two 'W's'.... We played six solid periods of hockey where we won every period...."
