College hockey: Penalties hurt Union in 4-1 loss to Colgate

Union coach Rick Bennett believed his team learned its lesson about staying out of the penalty box last weekend.

Apparently, the 20th-ranked Dutchmen did not, and it cost them at Colgate on Friday.

The Raiders scored one power-play goal and got another goal just as a Dutchmen penalty expired, and that lifted them to a 4-1 ECAC Hockey victory at Starr Rink.

The loss dropped the Dutchmen (8-7-4 ECACH, 15-11-5 overall) from a third-place tie to sole possession of fourth place and the final ECACH tournament first-round bye spot. They trail second-place St. Lawrence, 4-2 winners over Harvard, by two points, and are a point behind third-place Rens-

selaer Polytechnic Institute, which dropped a 4-1 decision to Cornell. Union faces Cornell tonight at 7 at Lynah Rink.

Union has a one-point lead over Clarkson, Dartmouth and Yale. Clarkson beat Dartmouth, 4-0. Yale lost to Quinnipiac, 4-1.

The Dutchmen were called for six penalties. Josh Jooris and Mat Bodie were each called for two penalties.

“We had very undisciplined penalties,” Bennett said. “As much as you say you should keep your head, especially on the road, it just didn’t happen tonight.”

After being called for eight penalties in last Friday’s 4-2 win over Yale, Union took just one penalty in the next night’s 2-0 victory over Brown. But that discipline didn’t carry over against Colgate.

With the score, 1-1, Jooris took a charging penalty 37 seconds into the second period. Just as his penalty expired, Spiro Goulakos, who is being treated for Hodgkin’s lymphoma and was playing in his second game following chemotherapy treatments, beat goalie Troy Grosenick to give the Raiders (6-10-3, 14-13-4) a 2-1 lead.

Jooris took a roughing penalty in the offensive zone with 5:11 left in the second, but Colgate didn’t score. Bodie got a facemasking penalty late in the second, and Union killed that off.

But a Bodie interference penalty 3:24 into the third period led to a Tylor Spink power-play goal 1:06 later.

Robbie Bourdon sealed the win, which snapped a six-game winless skid, on an empty-net goal with 38 seconds left.

Kurtis Bartliff gave Colgate a 1-0 lead 2:58 into the game. Union defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere snapped a 13-game goalless drought when he scored on the power play less than four minutes later. His last goal came Dec. 1 against Princeton.

Bennett said there will be lineup changes against Cornell.

“We’ve got to find out who cares on this team,” Bennett said.

Women

Colgate 2, Union 1

SCHENECTADY — Colgate remained in contention for a playoff berth with a victory over the Dutchwomen at Messa Rink.

Courtney Turner’s sixth goal of the season at 12:57 of the first period gave the Dutchwomen (7-22-4,

0-17-4 ECAC) a 1-0 lead, but that was the only shot that got past Raiders goalie Ashlynne Rando.
