On Sunday, November 27, New England College’s men’s ice hockey team won its first Stovepipe Tournament title since 2002. The Pilgrims of NEC battled against the Penmen of Southern New Hampshire University in the championship game held in the Ice Den Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire, winning 4-2.
After going down 1-0 in the first period, the Pilgrims evened the score just 32 seconds into the second period. NEC ended the period leading 3-1. The third period saw the Penmen score their second goal and the Pilgrims score their game-winning goal.
In all, the Penmen outshot the Pilgrims 35-27, but NEC’s senior goalie Andrew Kormos stopped 33 of those shots on goal. Junior forward Anthony Cinato starred in both NEC wins in the tournament and was named Most Valuable Player of the tournament.
The Pilgrims’ next contest comes Friday, December 2, at 7:00 p.m. at the University of Southern Maine.
