Game Recap

Stewart Leads Warriors To 2-1 OT Win

Thursday, December 5, 2002

North Andover, Mass. -- Freshman Blake Stewart (Roselle, IL) scored both goals, including the game-winner 2:09 into overtime as Merrimack (4-6-3, 3-3-1) edged Providence (9-6-1, 3-5-1) by a score of 2-1. Brendon Clark (Reading, MA) assisted on both goals and Joe Exter (Cranston, RI) stopped 30 shots, including 15 in the third period in the Hockey East victory.

After Lucas Smith (Milton, MA) tipped the puck to Clark behind the net, Clark found Stewart in front and he wristed the puck past Providence goaltender Bobby Goepfert (Kings Park, NY). Merrimack takes the season series from Providence with two wins and a tie, due in large part to the efforts of Stewart. The freshman has scored all four of his career goals against the Friars.

Providence dominated play early and took a 1-0 lead 9:02 into the game. Mike Robinson (Biggar, SASK) put back a rebound off his own shot, lifting the puck into the net over Exter. Merrimack answered at the 2:08 mark of the second period. Rob LaLonde (Williamsville, NY) flipped the puck from center ice up the left boards and Stewart skated on to it. The freshman then ripped a shot from the edge of the left circle, beating Goepfert on the short side.

Goepfert finished with 18 saves in the loss. Each team went 0-for-4 on the power play.

The Warriors visit Northeastern Saturday night at 7:00 p.m.
