Penn State Icers Sweep West Chester
On Friday, the Icers had to battle back three times in a game that proved tougher than expected. A sluggish first period saw only one goal when West Chester took a surprising lead in the first period. The Icers dominated the second period and tied the game up on a goal from Chris Cerutti. West Chester took another lead, but Dominic Morrone evened the game at two apiece. In the final period, West Chester took another lead, but the Icers scored three goals to win 5-3. Taylor Cera scored one, and Cerutti had the other two for his hat-trick.
The teams traveled to West Chester to play on Saturday, and Penn State won much more comfortably. Tim O’Brien, Morrone, and Cerutti all had two goals, while Kevin Miller, Taylor Cera, Mike McDonough, and Chris Pronchik contributed goals as well in the 10-3 Penn State win. Matt Madrazzo got his first win as a goalkeeper for the Icers.
Thanks to a strong offense, Penn State is now 9-2 and 2-0 in conference play. Next week, the Icers will be on the road to play Rhode Island to continue their conference schedule.
Friday: at Rhode Island, 7 p.m.
Saturday: at Rhode Island, 7 p.m.
