Here, the Rams would beat the Tigers 7-0, led by senior Tom Lukow’s pair of goals. Lukow, a varsity player since his freshman year, missed the 2010 season due to a knee injury, but has returned to full strength and has contributed both as an offensive leader and by playing in goal.
Fazio had a pair of assists as Pat Maroney and Mike Mulvihill both had one goal and one assist. Andrew Lee, Luca Pelligra and John Mahoney also scored, with Josh Kiesa, Lucas Johnson and Peter Silsz earning assists.
