With just two games on the Tuesday slate, there wasn’t much action, and on top of that,  both games were complete blowouts. Yale absolutely dusted Quinnipiac while Brown beat up on Bryant.

Brown 17, Bryant 7

The Brown bears went across town to take on Bryant in a Tuesday matchup that had Ocean State Cup implications. While this game actually started out pretty even as both teams went back-and-forth trading multi-goal runs, Brown soon took over. As Bryant trailed 6-4 at the end of the first they found themselves in a deeper hole as Brown started to take over in the second and held that momentum through halftime and into the third. Brown’s six-goal run to end the third pretty much wrapped things up as they led 16-6 heading into the fourth. Brown extended their run to seven goals midway through the fourth. Bryant got the last goal of the game as Brown walked away with the 17-7 win. Brown also captures the Ocean State Cup with the win.

Bryant was led by Trevor Weingarten who tallied 4 points (3G,1A) and Mason Balch who put up 2 goals. In goal for the Bulldogs, Kevin Beimfohr made 12 saves.

The Bears were led by George Grell and Jack Kniffin who each put up 6 points (4G,2A) in the win. In cage for Brown, Phil Goss made 6 saves and Acie Newton also saw some time in cage as well.

Yale 24, Quinnipiac 8

It was all Yale in this one as the Bulldogs dominated from the opening faceoff until the final horn. Quinnipiac just couldn’t keep up with Yale on either end of the field. Yale started the game strong as they took an 8-1 lead at the end of the first. Quinnipiac was able to get something going in the second and a little bit in the third, but the lead was too big to overcome. Yale ended strong as well, going on a five-goal run to end the game and secure the 24-8 blowout win. 

Yale was led by Jack Tigh and Matt Brandu who each tallied 6 points (4G,2A) in the win. In cage, Jack Starr made 19 saves while Hoyt Crance, Brody Wilson, and Miles Leniw each got a few minutes in between the pipes as well. 

The Bobcats were led by Mike Fletcher who scored 4 goals in the game. Foster Cuomo also had 2 assist. In cage, Nick DiMuccio made 19 saves for Quinnipiac.
