Fairfield, CT - Matt Gordon (Lynnfield, MA) of the men's ice hockey team was selected as the Enterprise Rent-A-Car/Sacred Heart student athlete of the week for the week of December 7-13.  The senior forward added a goal and an assist in the Pioneers 4-1 win over Dartmouth Sunady afternoon. 

Gordon scored Sacred Heart's first goal of the game seven minutes into the first period to knot the score at 1-1.  The assistant captain beat a defender one-on-one and slide the puck through the five hole of goaltender Jody O'Neill for his second goal of the season.  Gordon would tally his second assist of the year later in the period on the Pioneers fourth goal of the game off the stick of a Tommy Castonguay (Rimouski, QC) redirection.

The men's ice hockey team returns to action January 2-3 after the holiday break in a weekend series at the Milford Ice Pavilion with Air Force.
