After dropping a game to Amherst on January 26, the Assumption College Men’s Ice Hockey team looked to get their footing back against a tough Southern New Hampshire University team.
They traveled to Southern New Hampshire University on Saturday, January 30 and battled through three regulation periods plus overtime. Although the Hounds found themselves down 3-1 after the end of the first period, they fought with great tenacity until the very end. The end result was a tie game of 5-5, even after a period of overtime.
Having lost twice to SNHU this season, the Hounds were looking to get their revenge. It was truly a back and forth game, as the lead changed a total of four times throughout the contest.
Assumption struck first and early, with a goal coming from first-year Mac Carnes roughly five minutes into the game. However, the SNHU Penmen responded six minutes later with a goal of their own to make the game 1-1.
