BURLINGTON, Vt. – Vermont dropped its second straight game Saturday, falling to ninth ranked Merrimack, 4-2. The Warriors scored two goals in the span of 44 seconds midway through the second period. The Cats cut the lead to 3-2 in the third period, but could not get the equalizer past Merrimack Keeper Joe Cannata. An empty net goal in the closing seconds clinched the Warriors win.
"We did a lot of things in our zone better than we did last night but we've got to strive for consistency," said head coach Kevin Sneddon. "We were excellent at certain things for periods of time and then we would lose it, and we got into that situation again in the second period where we give them two quick goals. A team like that plays very well when they're up."
Connor Brickley scored his third goal of the season and Brett Bruneteau added his first goal of the season in the loss. Cats goalie Alex Vazzano, starting in place of Rob Madore made 20 saves. Vermont drops to 1-3-0 (0-2-0 HEA).
