Penn State Icers Take Two From Robert Morris

The Penn State Icers rebounded from two tough losses by sweeping Robert Morris (PA) over the weekend. The Icers scored 16 goals over two important wins Friday and Saturday that kept them in the playoff hunt.

On Friday, Tim O’Brien got things started for the Icers in a 9-4 win by scoring the only goal of the first period. In the second, Eric Steinour got a short-handed goal to put the Icers up by two, but Robert Morris got one back six minutes later. Dominic Morrone, George Saad and O’Brien all contributed goals in the period, yet Penn State took only a slim 5-3 lead into the third.

In the third period, Saad grabbed another goal in the fourth minute, but Robert Morris answered back at the 10-minute mark. The Icers were finally able to put the game away on power play goals from Morrone and Chris Cerutti. A goal from Paul Daley gave the Icers the 9-4 victory.

Penn State dominated the third period in the Saturday game as well for the series sweep. After scoring two goals apiece, the Icers put five more into the net for a 7-2 win. Daley had two goals to lead the Icers, while O’Brien, Morrone, Steinour, Joseph Zitarelli and Michael Longo all had one.

The Icers improve to 15-7 overall with the two wins. More importantly, Penn State is now 5-3 in conference play. They are still well behind Rhode Island and Delaware, but with eight conference games remaining, the Icers have reason to be hopeful. Next week, Penn State faces West Chester in a home-and-home series. In the last series between the teams, Penn State won both matches by a combined score of 15-6.

Upcoming schedule:

Friday: at West Chester, 9:15 p.m.
Saturday: vs. West Chester, 3:30 p.m.
