January 28, 2005

MANCHESTER, NH - Senior co-captain Beau Kretzman (Edina, MN) netted his fourth career hat trick on Friday night, guiding the Amherst College men’s hockey team to an 8-2 victory at ECAC East rival St. Anselm College. Despite being outshot 43-25, the Jeffs improved to 10-5-2 overall and 8-2-2 in conference play.

Kretzman scored the first goal of the game with just ten seconds remaining in the first period and proceeded to notch two more in the first eight minutes of the second session, giving the Jeffs a comfortable lead. Amherst went on to score three more in the frame, finishing the period with five goals on just 10 shots. Junior Steve Nelson (Wayzata, MN) and sophomores Trevor Calamel (Lockport, NY) and Erik Lund (Edina, MN) found the net as well to give Amherst a 6-0 cushion heading into the third.

Seniors Roy Mabrey (Needham, MA) and Scott Aldrich (Wilmington, MA) capped the Jeffs’ scoring with third-period goals, while the Amherst defense managed to hold the host Hawks scoreless until the 17:43-mark of the final frame. Amherst rookie forward Kyle Schoppel (Cambridge, Ontario) finished with a trio of assists, while sophomore Josh Fillman (Charlestown, MA) went the distance in goal, collecting a season high 41 saves.

Sophomores Josh Hechter (Winnipeg, Manitoba) and Brian Dobler (Jericho, NY) each found the net for St. Anselm, which fell to 12-4-1 overall and 10-4-1 in conference play.

The Jeffs return to action tomorrow at 4 p.m. at ECAC East foe New England College.
