En­gi­neers can’t muster any of­fense

No. 8 Notre Dame shuts down RPI to fin­ish off a sweep

Albany Times Union - Sunday - - SPORTS -

Eighth-ranked Notre Dame dropped RPI for a sec­ond straight time, win­ning 3-0 on Satur­day in a men’s col­lege hockey clash in South Bend, Ind.

Cam Mor­ri­son gave the Ir­ish all the of­fense they would need with his fourth goal of the season 4 min­utes, 40 sec­onds into the first pe­riod.

The RPI of­fense strug­gled to get rolling in the first two pe­ri­ods, tak­ing a com­bined 16 shots in the open­ing 40 min­utes, com­pared to 31 for Notre Dame over the same span.

The En­gi­neers’ at­tack put a lit­tle more pres­sure on Ir­ish keeper Dy­lan St. Cyr in the third, but the goalie stopped each one of the 17 RPI shots taken in the fi­nal pe­riod to earn the shutout.

Notre Dame’s of­fense helped take some pres­sure off St. Cyr by adding two in­sur­ance goals in the third. Colin Theisen sent home his fifth goal of the year and Dy­lan Malmquist added an empty-net goal for the Ir­ish to cap a twogoal third and close out the con­test.

Notre Dame has now won six straight games.

Goalie Owen Sa­vory stopped 38 shots for the En­gi­neers.

RPI trav­els to New Haven, Conn., on Fri­day to take on Yale.
