Seahawks drop season finale to Leopards on Senior Night
PORTSMOUTH, R.I. – Salve Regina University dropped a 5-2 decision to the Wentworth Institute of Technology during an Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Northeast contest at the Portsmouth Abbey Ice Rink on Senior Night. The Seahawks end the season with a 6-19-0 overall mark, including a 2-12-0 record during conference play, while the Leopards head into the postseason as the ECAC Northeast's #1 seed, finishing the year at 18-6-1 (11-2-1 ECAC).
Before the game, Salve Regina University honored seniors Adam Barragan (Crownsville, Md.), Isaiah Carlson (Copper Center, Alaska), and Henry DeSimone (Burlington, Mass.) for all of their contributions to the men's ice hockey program.
The Leopards got the scoring started when senior Skylur Jameson (Long Beach, Calif.) and junior Reed Rushing (Seattle, Wash.) set up freshman Mike Domsodi (Kirkland, Que.) for an even-strength goal at the 6:21 mark of the opening period to give Wentworth the early lead.
The Seahawks answered right back, scoring less than a minute later when sophomore Chase Davis (Weathersford, Texas) found the back of the net to tie the game at 1-1.
Wentworth then took control of the game with three unanswered goals in the second frame, building a 4-1 advantage. Jameson netted his second goal of the game on a power play opportunity at the 3:39 mark, and was followed by even-strength tallies from senior Mike Paglino (Grosse Point Shores, Mich.) at 14:52, and sophomore Fred Gervasi (Mississauga, Ont.) at 16:09.
The Leopards essentially put the game away with a third-period score by freshman Kevin Crowe (Galloway, N.J.) to take a 5-1 lead with just under eight minutes remaining in the frame.
Adam Barragan gave the Seahawk fans something to cheer about when the senior scored a power play goal at the 15:12 mark, assisted by juniors Mike Cenisio (Milan, Italy) and William Gomolinski (Western Springs, Ill.).
