Club Ice Hockey Team Starts Season 4-0-1

IceHockeyThe MU Hockey team beat the Seton Hall Pirates 5-4 in an overtime game on October 7. The winning goal was scored by Hawks’ captain Kyle McKenna.

Freshman San Monak started the game with a shot on goal, which was saved by the Seton Hall goalie.

Although the Pirates came out dominant in the first period with three goals, MU did not get discouraged.

The Hawks came out in the second period very confident and determined and scored their first goal, put in by Devon Ribsam.

Tempers began to flare in the second period following a shove to Anthony DiVincent causing him to fall on top of Seton Hall goalie. More trash talking was done throughout the second and third periods but that did not throw off the Hawk’s focus. Not only was trash talking being done on the ice, but in the stands as well. Arguments broke out amongst fans and family members of both teams. But MU kept their composure and put their energy into cheering on their Hawks.

Seton Hall players started getting rowdy, which led to players sitting in the box. The Hawks’ McKenna, DiVincent and Eric Folker were pressuring the Pirates causing them to lose concentration, which allowed DiVincent to score and tie the game 3-3.

The Hawks scored another goal shortly after to take a 4-3 lead.

The Pirates scored with two minutes left in the second period to tie the game 4-4.

In the third period, emotions ran wild and the Pirates did everything they could to break the Hawks’ confidence. The Hawks’ goalie Anthony Tabbacchino made some amazing saves during the duration of this game. In the third period, a shot on goal from Seton Hall was stopped by Taccacchino to hold the game at 4-4 and put it into overtime.

The Hawks defensive dream team Jared Minski and Kyle Browne played superb defense and stopped the Pirates dead in their tracks in overtime. Minski pummeled the Pirates to the floor to keep them from winning the game and it worked. The Hawks come out for the win with 25 seconds left in overtime with an amazing goal by Mckenna.

With the win over St. Joe’s Saturday the Hawks are now 4-0-1. MU won 8-7 in overtime once again. The winning goal scored by Minski with an assist by McKenna. Their next home game is Friday October 26 against LIU at the Jersey Shore Arena in Wall.
