Ryan Haggerty registered a hat trick, and goalie Scott Diebold stopped 17 of the 18 shots he faced to lead Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to a 7-1 men’s non-conference hockey rout of Sacred Heart Saturday night at Houston Field House.

The Engineers were already comfortably ahead after a 3-0 opening period. Haggerty notched two of his three scores around Matt Tinordi’s goal in that period

Sacred Heart cut its deficit to 3-1 when Jeff Carroll scored at 3:24 of the second period, but Haggerty tallied his third goal of the game nine minutes later to restore the thee-goal cushion.

Brock Higgs, on the power play, Parker Reno and Mike Zalewski tacked on third-period goals for RPI, which hosts New Hampshire Saturday night.

RPI outshot Sacred Heart, 35-18.

Women

Penn State 2, Union 1

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The 3-4 Dutchwomen split their weekend series with Penn State following a loss at Pegula Arena.

Junior goaltender Shenae Lundberg continued her strong start by stopping 32 of 34 shots. Lundberg is now just three saves away from 200 on the season and has a .925 save percentage to complement a 2.39 goals-against average.

The Nittany Lions jumped out to the lead in the first period when Jill Holdcroft stripped a Dutchwomen defender and beat Lundberg with a deke to her right for the 1-0 lead 12:28 into the period.

The second-period momentum swung Union’s way when Jenna Welch took a pair of consecutive minor penalties. The Dutchwomen, much like in Friday’s game, in which they tallied two goals on two power-play shots, capitalized on the PSU miscue and struck from the stick of sophomore forward Courtney Turner. Her goal was set up by junior forward Bryanne Panchuck and senior captain Maddy Norton. Union held an 11-10 edge in shots in the period, with Whitlinger saving 10 Union attempts.
