Colgate downs Ice Cats
Raiders score five unanswered in 5-3 win
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The UVM men’s hockey team opened its regular season in defeat, as Colgate downed the Cats 5-3 Friday night at Gutterson Fieldhouse.
Vermont opened the scoring just two minutes in, as Robbie Stucker fired a wrister five-hole to get the Cats on the board. But the visiting Raiders answered a minute later, the first of five unanswered goals to put the game virtually out of reach.
UVM rallied with a pair in the third via William Lemay and Philip Lagunov, but despite pouring shots on the Colgate cage the entire final period, the Cats never got any closer than 5-3.
The Cats host Colgate in the second game of the weekend series on Saturday.
