(West Point, NY) – The Army Black Knights scored 29 seconds into the game and three unanswered third period goals, downing the Sacred Heart Men's Hockey team 5-2 Friday night at Tate Rink.
Andy Starczewski had a hat trick for Army, but it was Zak Zaremba who put Army up on the first shift of the game on a goal in transition set up by Cheyne Rocha and John Clark.
Starczewski scored his first of the night unassisted 2:36 into the second. The Pioneers, however, responded with two goals in a 1:15 to tie the game before the intermission. Kyle Verbeek (Birmingham, MI) put SHU on the board at 8:45, assisted by Brian Sheehan (St. Louis, MO). Ben Lake tied the game with 1:50 left in the second, with Nick Curry (Augusta, GA) and Morgan Bonner (Aurora, ON) picking up the helpers for their first points as Pioneers.
However, Starcewski scored the game-winner 1:41 into the third, knocking in the rebound on a shot by by Willie Faust. Brian Schultz added insurance at 8:24, finishing off crisp passes by R.J. Burns and Joe Kozlak to make it a two-goal lead. Starcewski completed the hat trick with an empty net goal to put the game away at 17:52.
SHU and Army face off in the home opener for Sacred Heart Hockey Saturday, October 20 at the Milford Ice pavilion at 7:05 pm to close out a home-and-home weekend series.
