Last night I was at the RIT men’s hockey game. It was so much fun!! Men’s hockey actually had two games this week, one on Friday night and one on Saturday night. Friday night’s game was a shut out, we won 8-0 against Mercyhurst University. The whole crowd was yelling and screaming the entire game. I have never seen anything like it.
Then, last night (Saturday), we played them again, but Mercyhurst really stepped up their game. At the end of the 3rd period, we were tied 1-1. Can you imagine…after winning the night before 8-0, and now we only tied 1-1? We went into overtime, which was thrilling. Oh, I should have mentioned, all of this was taking place in the brand new Gene Polisseni Center, which just opened this year! Here’s a picture from last night, during overtime:
With about two minutes left of the game, Mercyhurst pulled their goalie, so they were able to have an extra player on the ice. Just so happens that our players shot the puck down the ice, and in it went! No goalie to save it! The whole stadium was on their feet cheering and screaming!
Here is a picture of the two teams after the game:
And with the win, we go into the playoffs! Tickets went on sale last night, and it’s being played right here at RIT on March 13th and 14th! I’m going to be sure to get my tickets on Monday!
Hope you have a great week! Happy March 1st!
