Owl's Power Past Merrimack

Westfield, MA --- The Westfield State Owls opened their 2011-12 season Saturday hosting Merrimack College in their first of 14 league games. The game opened with a quick pace and many hits as the teams traded scoring chances. Merrimack College would score the first goal of the game on a controversial call when Calvin Cegianski batted the puck out of the air past Owl's netminder Chase Thornton. That was the only puck that would get by Thornton who made 25 saves in the game.

The Owls would tie the game when Nico Gilbert found the back of the net only 2 minutes later. Brian Nixon and Greg Rice would pick up assists on the power play goal. The Owls went back on the power play and took the lead when Tommy Bruso streaked down the middle of the ice and rocketed a shot to beat the Warrior's goalie glove side. That would be all the scoring as the teams skated the last 45 minutes scoreless and the Owls skated off the ice with their first victory in the young 2011-12 season.

Key Stats:
Goals: Gilbert (1), Bruso (1)
