College hockey: Dutchmen sweep at Bowling Green

College hockey: Dutchmen sweep at Bowling Green

On Saturday night against Bowling Green, the Dutchmen started off well, and never let up. Sophomore

In its first two games of the season, Union got off to slow starts.

On Saturday night against Bowling Green, the Dutchmen started off well, and never let up.

Sophomore defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere had two goals and an assist, leading the Dutchmen to a 4-1 non-conference victory over the Falcons.

The win completed a two-game sweep of the Falcons for the 10th-ranked Dutchmen (2-1). By far, it was their best game of the young season.

“The boys really came to play tonight, from the opening period on,” Union coach Rick Bennett said. “The boys really brought their ‘A’ game tonight.”

The Dutchmen gave up the first goal of the game in their first two contests of the season. They lost to Merrimack, 4-1, last Saturday, and overcame a 2-0 first-period deficit to Bowling Green on Friday to take a 5-3 victory.

Gostisbehere, a third-round sel­ection of the Philadelphia Flyers in June’s NHL draft, got things going for the Dutchmen in Saturday’s rematch. Max Novak won a faceoff in the Bowling Green zone and drew the puck back to Gostisbehre at the point, and he fired a shot past goalie Andrew Hammond 2:54 into the game. It was Gostisbehere’s first goal of the season.

“It was great to get back into the swing of things,” Gostisbehere said. “It was a bit overdue, but it’s nice.

“It was a great faceoff win by Novak. I was fortunate it went in.”

Gostisbehere got an assist on sen­ior right winger Wayne Simpson’s first goal of the year late in the first period.

The Dutchmen got a two-man advantage early in the second per­iod, and Gostisbehere made the Falcons (0-2-1) pay when he scored his second goal of the game to give Union a 3-0 advantage.

It was the second consecutive night that a Union defenseman scored two goals. Freshman Seb­astien Gingras got two tallies in Friday’s game.

Junior left winger Daniel Carr, who’s had two consecutive 20-goal seasons, made it 4-0 for Union when he scored his first goal of the season, a power-play tally, with 12:23 left in the game.

Bowling Green ruined goalie Troy Grosenick’s bid for a shutout when Dajon Mingo scored a power-play goal at 9:22 of the third.

Grosenick had 21 saves.

The Dutchmen return to action Oct. 26, when they visit American International.
