Icers Rebound Against Towson

After losing two games to Rhode Island and falling out of the top ten in the rankings for the first time in over a decade, the Penn State Icers badly needed to play well against Towson on November 19 and 20. They did just that by winning both games while scoring 25 goals.

On Friday, Nov. 19, the Icers faced off with Towson on the road. The game was even early, but Penn State scored two short-handed goals starting at the ten-minute mark to begin the rout. Paul Daley had three goals to lead the Icers to a 13-0 victory, while Dominic Morrone, Tim O’Brien and Michael Longo all had two. Marek Polidor, Joseph Zitarelli, Chris Cerutti and Nicholas Seravalli had the other goals for Penn State.

The Icers returned home on Saturday, Nov. 20, for the second game of the series against Towson. Penn State started strong with a goal from O’Brien just 51 seconds in, and they never looked back on route to a 12-3 win. Dan Petrick led the Icers with a hat trick, and Teddy Hume got his first win in goal after spending several games on the bench.

The two wins bring the Icers record to 11-4. After having a week off over Thanksgiving break, Penn State returns to action next weekend against conference foe Delaware. The weekend series is part of only three games that the Icers will play in December before the winter break.

Upcoming schedule:

Friday: vs. Delaware, 9 p.m.
Saturday: vs. Delaware, 3:30 p.m.
