Vocational Training

A Clarkson hockey player prepares for life after college.

RPI needed a win tonight to get back on track for a first-round bye, and they got it in fine fashion, putting up a 5-1 road victory over Clarkson, with five unanswered Engineer goals after Clarkson took an early 1-0 lead.

RPI picked up scoring from some unlikely sources, which was sorely needed. Matt Tinordi and Guy Leboeuf picked up their first collegiate points, while Alex Angers-Goulet turned in a fine performance and capped the night off with a shorthanded breakaway goal to make it 5-1 with 4.5 seconds left.

Although Cornell defeated Dartmouth and RPI stands in 5th place in the ECAC, the win snaps RPI's losing streak and sets them up for a big regular season finale next weekend against Princeton and Quinnipiac.

Earlier this afternoon, the RPI women fell to St. Lawrence, but backed into 8th place in the ECAC by virtue of Colgate and Yale losses. The Engineers will get to travel to Ithaca next weekend for a best-of-three series against Cornell in the ECAC quarterfinals.
