College Hockey: RPI tops UNH

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute scored the game’s first four goals, and goalie Scott Diebold made 3

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute scored the game’s first four goals, and goalie Scott Diebold made 30 saves as the 12th-ranked Engineers defeated No. 13 New Hampshire, 4-2, Saturday at Houston Field House.

Johnny Rogic set the tone for the Engineers (4-1), scoring 38 seconds into the game. Freshman forward Jake Wood made it 2-0 with his first collegiate goal at 11:56 of the first period.

Matt Neal and Ryan Haggerty scored 1:28 apart early in the second period to give RPI a 4-0 lead and chase UNH starting goalie Jeff Wyer from the game. Casey DeSmith replaced him and shut out the Engineers.

The Wildcats (1-3-1) got their goals 1:41 apart by Jeff Silengo and Matt Willows midway through the second. But Diebold, playing in place of the injured Jason Kasdorf, was sharp of the rest of the way. He stopped all 11 shots in the third period as the Engineers managed just one shot on goal.

RPI junior forward Zach Schroeder, who didn’t play after Nov. 30 last season because of a broken wrist, made his season

debut and assisted on Wood’s goal
