The men’s hockey team got off to a hot start on Friday night with two goals in the first 8:00 of action at Dartmouth, only to see its lead eaten away by a series of bad bounces and mental errors. When the dust had settled, Dartmouth won the game in overtime, 5-4, on a controversial goal by Joe Gaudet.
Just as the high sticking penalty on Keir Ross was winding down, Gaudet tipped in a shot from Doug Jones. The referee stationed behind the goal initially waved off the shot, but the other three referees claimed it was a goal, handing the Green the win.
Joe Devin and Colin Greening both had a goal and an assist; Brendon Nash added two assists

The Red ran out to a large lead and went into halftime up 51-35. The Crimson’s Tommy Amaker made a run to start the second half and brought the margin down to eight, but the Red never lost the lead.
