Utica, N.Y. - Utica College Men's Hockey team sent their fans home after this Thanksgiving weekend feeling really good and here's why:
The #12 Pioneers faced #7 Salve Regina in the Delta Hotels by Marriott Thanksgiving Showcase Championship game.
The Pioneers came out hot to start. In the first period Sophomore Cameron Bartkoski, and Dante Zapata scored within 30 seconds of eachother.
In the top of the second period, freshman Brandon Osmundson deflects a shot by Tyler Dill into the net to bring the Pioneres lead to 3-0.
Junior Donovan Ott showed us his puck handling skills by faking out his defender and putting in goal number four.
Salve Regina's Cayden Kraus would put them on the board with 7 minutes to go in the second period.
Jamie Bucell of Utica would score the only goal of the third period and Sean Dickson had 22 saves in goal.
The Pioneers are the champions of the Thanksgiving Showcase winning 5-1 and handed Salve Regina their first loss of the season.
Utica's Brandon Osmundson, Joey Rutkowski, and goalie Sean Dickson made the Delta Hotels Thanksgiving Showcase All-Tournament Team.
