College Sports: Penmen working on the weekend


Third-seeded Southern New Hampshire University will battle fourth-seeded St. Michael's College for the Northeast-10 men's ice hockey championship Saturday at 2:10 p.m. at the Ice Den in Hooksett.

The Penmen (16-8-1) are led by sophomores Jim Gabrione (17 goals, 21 assists) and Joe Collins (17 goals, 21 assists). This week Collins was named the NE-10 Player of the Year.

In the semifinals, the Penmen eliminated St. Anselm 4-1 at Sullivan Arena. The surprising Purple Knights (7-16-3) upset top-seeded Stonehill in the semifinals, 2-1.

But St. Michael's has a strong post-season resume. St. Michael's is playing in its 18th post-season tournament in 19 seasons. They are searching for their sixth NE-10 title. The Penmen, an 8-4 winner against the Purple Knights on Jan. 7, are seeking their first tournament crown in five tries.
