A two-goal third period helped Colgate defeat a strong Quinnipiac team 3-1 Saturday afternoon. Colgate capitalized on a loose puck in the offensive zone with under two minutes to play in the first. Evan Tschumi picked up the puck, sent a pass to Griffin Lunn who pivoted and sent a backhand pass into the slot that Henry Marshall one-timed home.

Quinnipiac tied the game up on a second period power-play goal. It was the only goal Andrew Farrier (33 saves) would allow all night. With just over ten minutes left in the third period John Snodgrass scored his first of the season to give the Raiders a 2-1 lead. Snodgrass cleaned up a Tyler Jeanson rebound for the score. Bobby McMann scored an empty net goal at 18:28 with assists going to Nick Austin and Tyler Penner.
