Bruno Update: Brown Hockey to ECAC Final Four!

Matt Lorito ’15

Brown men’s hockey completed a 2-1 best-of-three series victory over Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (yeah, that’s what RPI stands for) with an intense 3-2 victory Sunday night, advancing to the ECAC Final Four in Atlantic City, New Jersey next Friday. Goals from Jason Goldberg ’14, Nick Lappin ’16, and Matt Lorito ’15, along with clutch goaltending by Anthony Borelli ’13, helped the Bears hold on to upset #16 RPI. For those of us who dished out ten bucks to watch the online feed, it was well worth it (driving six hours round trip last night to see us lose 6-2 in Game 2… not as much). We humbly suggest kicking your spring break off right by heading down to Atlantic City for a weekend of partying, gambling, and Brown athletics. Seriously. Why not? If you were ever going to support a Brunonian sports team, this is a pretty awesome one to pick.

Game of the Week

Brown Men’s Ice Hockey Wins 5-1 over St. Lawrence

The Brown Men’s Ice Hockey Team (8-12-4, ECAC 6-10-1) halted a 5-game losing streak with its win, 5-1, against St. Lawrence (9-15-5, ECAC 5-11-1) and, in doing so, improved their positioning for the ECAC Hockey playoffs. Brown jumped out to an early lead and never let St. Lawrence recover. After David Brownschidle (’10) notched a goal 46 seconds into the match, the Brown front line continued to drill the St. Lawrence goalie with shots. The second period was a similar story to the first period as Brown outshot St. Lawrence 9-0. Brown finished the game outshooting St. Lawrence 36-34 in the rout of St. Lawrence. As the season comes to a close, the Brown Hockey Team is in a battle for one of the last spots that will confer the advantage of home ice in the ECAC playoffs. The loss against 8th seeded Clarkson (14-14-2, ECAC 8-9-1) hurt Brown in the standings, but a win against 7th seeded Quinnipiac (13-11-5, ECAC 6-8-4) next weekend could propel Brown up in the standings.
