report for the weekend games - I was in NC the past weekend so this will be a telegraphic recreation as in the old Red Sox days

Fri vs UMass Boston - Tufts charges out to a 3-0 lead with 3 goals within 2 min starting at 8:54 that is how the period ended in spite of being outshot 14-7

2nd period - Umass closes it to 3-2 with 2 in the first ten minutes but we come right back with 2 more to up the lead to 3 - Umass comes back again with a late goal and another on the first shift of the 3rd to make it a 5-4 game - we then take 3 penalties in a row but Cleary comes up with a shorthanded goal to ice the game for us - Umass does pull the goalie with the above mentioned Cleary in the box and they get one at 19:59 for the 6-5 final

scoring Byrne 1-0, Cleary 2-0, Smotherman 0-1, Rotondi 0-1, McCarthy 2-1, Murphy 1-1

Sat vs Babson We break on top 1-0 at 1:58 Dalton from Smotherman and McCarthy - we play one of our better periods of the year but cannot score again this period or during the game - Babson gets three in the second and 2 in the third for the 5-1 final - shots are pretty even every period about 35 each and coach Murphy was not displeased with our performance or the effort - could not get going on the PP but played them even pretty much the whole game -- if we can keep that up during the homestretch it could be fun

next games at Amherst on Fri and at Hamilton on Sat
