The Men’s Ice Hockey team was seeking revenge as they faced off against the Vikings of Salem State in a heated rematch of last year’s MASCAC championship. It was that game that saw Panthers emerge victorious 5-6 over the Vikings.

The game started out promising for the Panthers, as they would race out to commanding 5-0 lead within the first 14 minutes of the game. The scorers for Plymouth were Freshman Alec LeFave (Hudson, NH), Junior Chris Zuccaro (Hudson, NH), Senior Captain Michael Economos (Crystal Lake, Ill.), Sophomore Ryan Stevens (Colleyville, TX), and Senior Ian McGilvrey (Omaha, Neb.). The rest of the game saw the Vikings come back to match Plymouth’s five unanswered goals with five unanswered of theiown to tie it up, four of them coming off of power plays.

Freshman forward, Tim Larocque (Middleboro, Mass.) was the hero for the Panthers as he would score the game-winning goal in the overtime, coming off an assist from Sophomore Quinn Carroll (Amherst, NH) and senior Erik Strom (Gothenburg, Sweden).

Sophomore goalie, Evan Morelli (Reading, Mass.) sent away 18 shots out of 23 total. Zuccaro, McGilvrey, and Carroll all tallied two assists each. Salem controlled the power play going four out of seven while Plymouth was unable to capitalize with the man advantage unable to find the back of the net on four tries. However, Plymouth did com- mand the shot total with a 34 to 23 advantage over Salem.

The Panthers improve to 3-2 and remain perfect in conference play recording their 2nd win vs MASCAC opponents. Salem drops to 1-2 (1-1 MASCAC). The Panthers are back on the ice Thursday, the 17th, as they travel to Framingham State (1-3, 0-2 MASCAC). Puck drop is set for 7:40pm, and on Saturday, the 19th, as they welcome Fitch- burg State (1-3-1, 1-1-1 MASCAC) to Hanaway Rink. Saturday’s game will feature Alumni Night and Salute the Troops Night. Puck drop is set for 6pm.
