Colgate Remains Winless After Pair of Losses

Thursday, October 10, 2019

Colgate (0-2-0) – 1
Ferris State (1-0-0) – 3

Matt Verboon scored his first career goal, but the Raiders couldn’t hang on for the win. Three straight Bulldogs helped lead them to the 3-1 win over Colgate. Verboon scored at 6:44 of the first period, 14 seconds after a Ferris State penalty expired. Verboon picked up a loose puck near the top of the circle, skated into the slot, and let a wrist shot fly for the score.

The Bulldogs tied it up on a deflection while on the man-advantage with just over 5 minutes to play in the period. Two more third period goals sealed the victory for the home team. Colgate out-shot the Bulldogs 29-23. Mitch Benson finished with 20 saves for the Raiders.

BOX SCORE

Head coach Don Vaughan had this to say about his team:

“It’s very frustrating, we worked hard again, and we generated a little more chaos at the net tonight with two posts. Our power play has to produce. We’re not in sync right now. It is early, but if you go 0-for-6 [on the power play] it’s the difference in the game, same as the other night. We’ve got to remedy it, and find a way whether it’s different personnel or structures. We had some good looks, but we need to find a way to score.”

#10 Boston College (2-0-0) – 3
Colgate (0-3-0) – 0

Despite out-shooting the Eagles 39-26, the Raiders couldn’t find a way to beat the Boston College netminder who finished with a 39 save shutout. Benson was in goal for the Raiders again. BC scored one goal each period en route to their 3-0 victory.

Colgate will be without Liam Watson-Brawn for their next game after he received a major plus game disqualification for contact to the head with only 25 seconds left in the game.

BOX SCORE

Colgate will look for their first win of the season this weekend in a series at UMass Lowell.
