Game Recap

Stewart, Exter Lead Warriors Past No. 12 PC, 4-1

Saturday, November 23, 2002

North Andover, Mass. -- Blake Stewart (Roselle, IL) had a goal and an assist and Joe Exter (Cranston, RI) stopped 39 shots to lead Merrimack (3-5-1, 2-3-1) to a 4-1 victory over No. 12 Providence (8-4-1, 3-4-1).

Tim Reidy (Shrewsbury, MA), Brent Gough (St. Albert, ALB) and Brendon Clark (Reading, MA) also scored as the Warriors took three of four points against the Friars on the weekend. Devin Rask (Parkside, SK) scored the lone goal for Providence in front of 1,736 at the Volpe Center.

Reidy got the Warriors off to a quick start, scoring 21 seconds into the game on a power play goal that was near identical to the one he scored on Friday night at Providence. Torry Gajda (Westfield, MA) was whistled for a hooking penalty at 13 seconds and Reidy took advantage of the power play, tipping in a shot by Schmidt for his team-leading fifth goal of the season. Gough then gave the Warriors a two-goal lead at the 16:40 mark after receiving a nifty backhand pass from Rosa in front.

Providence got on the board at the 8:44 mark of the middle period with a power play goal. Rask scored his ninth goal of the season with assists going to James Pemberton (Cumberland, RI) and Chris Chaput (Pawtucket, RI) to pull the Friars within one. Stewart put the Warriors back up by two with just 36 seconds left in the second period. The freshman carried the puck up the left boards, faked a pass then stuffed it through the pads of Schaefer.

Clark scored the first goal of his career on a play set up by Stewart. After taking the puck up the right side, Stewart dumped the puck off to Clark just before reaching Schaefer and Clark finished at the 5:18 mark. Providence out-shot Merrimack 28-8 over the final two periods but Exter stopped 27 of those shots to preserve the win.

Merrimack visits Nebraska-Omaha of the CCHA in a pair of non league games over Thanksgiving weekend, Fri.-Sat. Nov. 29-30. Game time each night is 8:05 p.m. Eastern time.
