No. 1 St. Lawrence 4, Ithaca 0
ITHACA, N.Y. -- Junior forward Brian Gilloran scored two goals and assisted on a third to lead No. 1 St. Lawrence to a 4-0 win at Ithaca and a sweep of its weekend series.
The Saints improved to 8-0-0 overall and matched their most productive outing of the season in terms of goals, despite their lowest shot total of the year. The 1-4-1 Bombers also managed the second-highest shot total against the Saints this season with 10, but goalie Brian Abernethy saved all three Ithaca shots on goal for his fourth consecutive shutout and fifth of the season.
Gilloran made a good defensive play to start the Saint offense with the game's first goal as he intercepted an Ithaca clearing pass, dribbled the ball into the box and fired a shot past Bomber goalie Jordan Gentile for his third goal of the season. St. Lawrence scored again 2:04 later when Gilloran made a one-touch pass through the middle to Sam DeMello, who put away his seventh of the season at 15:37.
