Game Recap

Brown Tops Warriors In UConn Classic, 4-1

Thursday, December 30, 2004

Storrs, Conn. - Four different players scored as Brown knocked off Merrimack, 4-1, in the first round of the Toyota UConn Hockey Classic. Brown advances to the tournament championship game on Friday at 4:30, while Merrimack will meet either host Connecticut or Holy Cross in the consolation game at 1:30.

Justin Mills scored for Merrimack, his third goal of the season, and Ryan Sullivan and Hank Carisio collected assists on the goal. It came with 2:19 left and snapped a shutout bid by Brown freshman goaltender Adam D'Alba (23 saves), who remained unbeaten on the season (5-0-1).

Jim Healey made 20 saves in net for the Warriors, who were held scoreless on five power play tries while Brown was 1-for-2. Shots were even at 24-24.

After a scoreless first period in which Brown outshot Merrimack, 10-4, the Bears broke the ice with a power play goal just 20 seconds into the second period as Brian Ihnacak tipped in a shot by Les Haggett. Four minutes later, Rugo Santini made it 2-0 off a turnover at center ice with a shot from the left circle that beat Healey.

Merrimack carried play the rest of the period, outshooting Brown 15-7, but D'Alba stood tall in turning back all 15 shots.

Haggett gave Brown a 3-0 lead nine minutes into the third, and Cory Caouette added insurance with three minutes left as the Bears held Merrimack to only five shots in the period. Mills ended D'Alba's shutout bid when he put back a shot by Sullivan in the closing minutes, but the Warriors could get no closer.

The Warriors remained winless on the season when allowing the first goal (0-9-2) and trailing after two (0-12-1). It was also the Warriors' first loss on neutral ice (3-1-1).
