Pawtucket, RI -- Westfield State's only game of the weekend came on Friday night as they traveled to face Rhode Island College. The Owls would strike first on a power play goal by Captain, Connor Sweeney. Brian Bassett would get another goal before the end of the first period and Westfield would take a 2-0 lead. Rhode Island College would get a power play goal of their own with under two minutes remaining in the second period. A tip shot from the point would beat Owls netminder Nate Maillet.
Maillet would make several saves early on in the third period to keep it a one goal game and eventually recorded his fourth win of the season. Nick Sibilia would give Westfield an insurance goal with an empty net goal late in the third. Connor Sweeney would finish the scoring, scoring his second goal of the game, with the goalie back in the net for the Anchormen.
Westfield will head into the Thanksgiving break in fourth place in the South Division. They return to action on December 3rd and 4th with league games against Trinity College and Sacred Heart University. The Owls would like to wish their friends and families a Happy Thanksgiving.
