Engineers Steal a Freakout Victory over Brown with a Last Minute Goal

The Men's Hockey Team beat Brown University 3-2 on Saturday night, extending the team's undefeated streak in Big Red Freakout games to 15 (11 wins and 4 ties). Kirk MacDonald put a blistering shot in off the crossbar with 8.3 seconds left in regulation to seal the victory. The sellout croud of 5,152 went berzerk because most of them had already concluded that the game was going to overtime. Andrew Martin made 30 saves to get the win.

Prior to the Freakout, the 1985 NCAA Championship Team was honored on the twentieth anniversary of their incredible season. Most of the players from the team were in attendance, including Mark Jooris, whose unusual professional hockey career in Europe was documented in the Times Union on Friday.

Earlier in the day, an alumni game was held, with about 40 players participating. This was the largest turnout of hockey alumni in the last 10 years, even surpassing last year's turnout for the fiftieth anniversary of the 1954 NCAA Championship.
