Men’s hockey picks up two more points

Doug Manners

The Quinnipiac men’s hockey team has played only four road games in the ECACHL this season, yet they’ve already surpassed last season’s point total in conference road games. Last weekend, the Bobcats picked up a pair of points as they defeated Clarkson, 6-4, on Friday night and lost 3-2 to St. Lawrence on Saturday afternoon.

Quinnipiac, which went 2-9 in road ECAC games last season, is 2-1-1 in conference action and 5-3-2 overall. The Bobcats will play their first ECAC home games of the season this weekend when they host Colgate on Friday and Cornell on Saturday at the Northford Ice Pavilion.

Sophomores Bryan Leitch and David Marshall each scored two goals in the win over No. 12 Clarkson. Leitch scored the game-winning goal midway through third period on a penalty shot. Dan Henningson and Brandon Wong scored the other Quinnipiac goals, while Bud Fisher made 18 saves in net.

In the loss to St. Lawrence, the Saints snapped a 2-2 tie when Travis Vermeulen scored 6:44 into the third period. Wong and Dan Travis scored for the Bobcats, who held a 34-28 advantage in shots.


Assistant captain Michael Bordieri is out indefinitely after being injured in Quinnipiac’s 2-2 tie at RPI on Nov. 4. The senior, who is one of the team’s top defensive forwards, has one goal in eight games played this season.
