Connecticut College 5, Saint Michael´s College 3
Class of 2010 Closes Out Historic Era of Camel Hockey with Home Win
NEW LONDON, Conn.--Senior Ryan Howarth (Grand Blanc, Mich.) had two goals and one assist and classmate Brett Moore (Medfield, Mass.) added a goal and an assist as Connecticut College (8-15-1) closed out its 2009-2010 season with a 5-3 victory against Saint Michael´s College (5-16-3) in Dayton Arena Saturday afternoon.
Joe Capuano (Melrose, Mass.) potted his ninth goal of the season with 1:12 remaining in regulation that proved to be the difference maker for the Camels, who won four out of their final games of the 2009-2010 campaign. Greg Parker (Trenton, Ontario) made 24 saves in the triumph to close out his prolific playing career with a school record of 2622 stops.
The Camels failed to qualify for the 2010 NESCAC Championship. But the senior group comprised of Brett Moore, Trevor Bradley (West Hartford, Conn.), Ryan Joyce (Dorchester, Mass.), Ryan Howarth, Sean Driscoll (Peabody, Mass.) and Greg Parker will hold their place in Camel hockey history for their contributions on and off the ice that helped the Camels earn three consecutive berths in the NESCAC Championship Tournament that included back-to-back winning seasons in conference play.
Dave Vorozilchak (Clarks Summit, Pa.) had a goal and an assist to lead the visitors in the setback. Junior Nick Sheehan (Potsdam, N.Y.) tallied two assists in the loss for the Purple Knights. Rookie net-minder Mike Dizgun (Kirkland, Quebec) stopped 43 shots for Saint Michael´s.
The Camels out-shot the visitors 48-to-27 in the win. Capuano buried a backhander with 1:12 remaining to put the Camels on top for good at 4-3. Howarth assisted on the tally with a pass across the slot to the left post side of the goal. With 10 seconds left, Howarth added a shorthanded marker, the 33rd of his career, to ice the victory.
