PSU Hockey Review: At Robert Morris
Sorry for the lateness of this recap hockey fans, things came up at the beginning of this week leaving me to be super busy. But better late than never, right?
Penn State 5 Robert Morris 4
The Penn State Nittany Lions Men's Ice Hockey team improved to 2-3-1 with a 5-4 victory over the Colonials of Robert Morris on Friday. As the score would suggest, this was a wild one out in Pittsburgh. 11 different Lions registered a point in this one, including 5 different goal scorers.
Scheid, Juha, Olczyk, Bailey, and Williamson each had a goal in this one, with Juha's, Bailey's, and Williamson's all coming on the power play. David Goodwin, Dylan Richard, Ricky DeRosa, Nate Jensen (2), Max Gardiner, and Taylor Holstrom (2) all contributed assists on said goals. Casey Bailey led the Lions in shots overall, piling up 10. Matthew Skoff made a career-high 48 saves on the night. Williamson also led the team in blocks on the night with 6.
Cody Wydo scored 4 goals on the night for the Colonials, and was assisted by Tyler Wilson*, Scott Jacklin (2), Ben Robillard, and Zac Lynch (2). Wydo expectedly led Robert Morris in shots with 9. Goalie Terry Shafer sent away 36 shots for his team.
*That's right, you read correctly. Matt McGloin embarrassed Tyler Wilson so badly at Raiders pre-season camp, that Wilson decided to return to college as a hockey player. That's what happens when you mess with the Scranton Gunslinger.
