Ice Hockey tops Monroe

The Erie Community College (14-4) ice hockey team used four power play goals to down top-ranked Monroe Community College 5-1 Tuesday evening in Cheektowaga.

The Kats took a 2-0 lead into the first intermission. Sophomore Phil DiFrancisco opened the scoring on the power play when he scored off a pass from sophomore Dan Wendt. Sophomore Tom Smith put the Kats up 2-0 on a power play goal with 25 seconds remaining in the first period.

Monroe cut into the lead with just 45 seconds remaining in the second period on a power play goal by Ricky Karre.

However, the Kats got two power play goals from freshman Ryan Vertino and a goal from Nick Friol in the third period to pull away from the Tribunes. Wendt finished the game with three assists.

Erie returns home Saturday, February 6 when it hosts Mohawk Valley Community College at 3:15 p.m.
