Game Recap

Minutemen Defeat Warriors, 8-2

Friday, November 5, 2004

Amherst, Mass. - UMass tied the school record for goals in a Hockey East game with an 8-2 bombing of Merrimack on Friday night at the Mullins Center. Matt Anderson (West Islip, N.Y.) scored twice while defenseman Marvin Degon (Millbury, Mass.) had a goal and assist in the win. The Minutemen also set the school record for fastest three goals in a span of 1:17.

Merrimack's Matt Johnson opened the scoring with a power-play goal in a busy first period as he stuck a shot between the pipes at the 14:12 mark for his second tally of the season.

The Minutemen responded tallying the fastest three goals in program history. Anderson scored at the 17:55 mark and at the 19:12 mark, while Degon sandwiched his second goal of the season between the two at 18:43 to set the record for the fastest trio of goals scored.

P.J. Fenton (Longmeadow, Mass.) added a goal in the third minute of the second period, while Obi Aduba (Walpole, Mass.) tallied in the 11th-minute for his first career goal. Jeff Lang (Westwood, Mass.) rounded out the second period when he scored with just under three minutes remaining.

A penalty for cross checking on Anderson set up a Merrimack power-play which led to Mike Alexiou scoring the second goal for the Warriors at the 11:39 mark of the third period.

Stephen Werner (Chevy Chase, Md.) and James Solon (Acton, Mass.) closed out the UMass attack with goals just over a minute apart to close out the third period.

Gabe Winer (Stoughton, Mass.) was strong in the net for UMass making 21 saves. Jim Healey gave up three goals for Merrimack before being replaced by Casey Guenther who gave up five goals, but made 21 saves.

The last time UMass scored eight goals in a game was against UConn on Feb. 14, 2003. The eight goals also tied a record for the Minutemen for goals in a Hockey East game which was last set against Merrimack on Feb. 2, 1996.

With the win, UMass pulls its all-time series record to 24-24-5 against Merrimack which is the first Hockey East opponent the Minutemen have put together a .500 record against.

The teams return to action on Saturday night when the Minutemen travel to Merrimack. Game time is slated for 7:00 p.m.
