The attackman ended the day with nine goals, setting a new program-record for goals in a game. He also dished out three assists for a total 12 points in the contest. His performance saw him eclipse 200 career points.
Attack: Louis Perfetto, Boston U.
The Terriers’ earned a massive victory, 14-9, victory on the road against the Loyola Greyhounds on Saturday. And in the contest, it was Perfetto who benefited the most on that talented attack line. The junior ended the day with eight points off two goals and six assists.

LSM: Sean Jeffrey, Siena
Siena came back from down 9-1 to defeat St. Bonaventure 14-11. A big part of that comeback effort was the juice goals the Saints got from poles. Three of those scores came from Jeffrey had he netted a hat trick of pole goals to steal all the highlights in the win.
