Holy Cross downs Dutchmen
Nov. 28, 2004
Providence, R.I. - Senior captain Andrew McKay (Bellefeuille, Que.) and junior Tyler McGregor (Ajax, Ont.) each posted a goal and an assist to lead Holy Cross past Union, 3-1, Sunday afternoon in the consolation game of the Dunkin' Donuts Coffee Pot Tournament at the Dunkin' Donuts Center.
The Crusaders opened up the game with a goal by sophomore Sean Nappo (Northville, Mich.) at 3:36 in the first period on a rebounder by McKay.
Junior netminder Ben Conway (South Hadley, Mass.) held the Dutchmen scoreless for two and half periods, making 21 saves until Union answered with an unassisted goal by freshman Phil McDavitt (Duxbury, Mass.) at 9:22 in the third to tie the game.
With 2:55 left in the game McKay found the back of the net on a man-up opportunity for his first goal of the season to put the Crusaders in the lead. McGregor and senior assistant captain Tony Coskren (Walpole, Mass.) were credited with the assists.
McGregor blocked a shot by Union and proceeded to score on the Dutchmen's empty net with 54 seconds remaining in the game with help from junior assistant captain Pierre Napert-Frenette (Bathurst, N.B.) and Coskren to increase Holy Cross margin by two.
In all Conway halted 32 shots on goal for the Crusaders, while freshman Justin Mrazek (Regina, Sask.) made 23 saves for Union.
