Game Recap

Warriors Tie Union, Advance To Coffee Pot Final

Saturday, November 27, 2004

Providence, R.I. - Merrimack (3-9-1) tied Union College (7-5-1) by the score of 4-4 this afternoon in the semifinals of the second annual Dunkin' Donuts Coffee Pot Tournament held at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, R.I.

The Warriors advanced to the championship game of the Coffee Pot Tournament, by winning the concluding shootout, 2-1, as junior Bryan Schmidt (Bloomington, Minn.) came through with the game-winner. Trailing 4-1 midway through the second period, Merrimack scored three unanswered goals to tie it 4-4, early in the third, and would go on to win via a shootout.

Union got on the board first with a power play goal less than four minutes into the contest as freshman Phil McDavitt (Duxbury, Mass.) notched his first collegiate score. Assisted by sophomore forward Olivier Bouchard (Quebec City, Que.) and Casey Ftorek (Bedford, Mass.), the play gave the Dutchmen an early 1-0 lead.

The Dutchmen made it 2-0 with an even-strength tally by freshman Josh Coyle (Brooklyn, Ohio.). He was assisted by junior Scott Seney (Silver Spring, Md.) and sophomore forward Olivier Bouchard (Quebec City, Que.) 11:24 into the first period.

Merrimack came back with a power play goal 15:51 into the contest as sophomore Jeff Caron (Moncton, N.B.) put home a feed from sophomore forward Matt Byrnes (Lincoln, R.I.) to make it 2-1 Union.

Union answered right back with its third goal to lead 3-1 right before the end of the period. Senior forward Jordan Webb (Nepean, Ont.) scored his 12th of the year thanks to assists from senior forward Brian Kerr (Kirkland, Que.) and McDavitt. The goal came during a delayed penalty call against Merrimack.

Dutchmen junior forward Jonathan Poirier (St. Jerome, Que.) would get in to the scoring with his fifth tally of the season less seven minutes into the second period.

The public address announcer barely had a chance to announce the score, when Merrimack sophomore Mike Alexiou (Pickering, Ont.) at 14:08 put one home to cut it to 4-2, Union.

Sophomore Jordan Black (Canton, Mich.) would whittle the Union lead down to one with his sixth goal of the season. Byrnes assisted on the score at 15:02, giving him a multiple-point afternoon. The Warriors would tie the game in the third as Schmidt notched his sixth score of the year. The game-tying goal came 3:05 into the third and on a power play.

Union posted a 12-5 advantage in shots during period one, while Merrimack bettered the Dutchmen with a 19-3 shots advantage in period number two.

With the shootout victory, Merrimack will face the winner of tonite's second game, host Providence, in the championship game of the Dunkin' Donuts Coffee Pot Tournament. That contest will begin at 7:00 p.m. tomorrow. Union will face Holy Cross in the consolation game beginning at 4:00 p.m.
