Jeffs Open Season with 6-3 Win at UMass Boston

November 19, 2004

BOSTON, MA - The Amherst College menís hockey team opened its season with a 6-3 win at ECAC East foe UMass Boston on Friday night. Six different players found the net for the Jeffs, while senior co-captain Jon Hill (Averill Park, NY), junior Marc Russell (Essex, VT), sophomore Trevor Calamel (Lockport, NY) and first-year Michael McIntosh (Soldotna, AK) each dished out two assists as Amherst outshot the Beacons 51-33.

Senior co-captain Beau Kretzman (Edina, MN) was the first to light the lamp for Amherst, netting a power-play goal off assists from Hill and Calamel at the 5:01-mark of the opening frame. Rookie Kyle Schoppel (Cambridge, Ontario) pushed the Jeff lead to 2-0 just over a minute later, but the Beacons pulled back within one with 3:25 left in the period on a goal by first-year Matt Cosmos (Middlebury, CT).

Amherst junior A.J. Greco (Williamsville, NY) notched a power-play goal just 22 seconds into the second session, and first-year Gregg Adamo (Manalapan, NJ) tallied the eventual game-winner at the 10:56-mark off assists from McIntosh and sophomore forward Sean Ellis (Springfield, MA). Ellis stretched the Amherst lead to 5-1 with just under three minutes left in the period.

UMass Boston tried to mount a comeback in the final frame as first-year Ben Leazott (Franklin, MA) scored a power-play goal and fellow rookie Rick Tennyson slipped in a short-handed score, but Amherst senior Roy Mabrey (Needham, MA) squashed the Beaconsí comeback hopes with the final Jeff score in the closing minutes.

Amherst sophomore netminder Josh Fillman (Charlestown, MA) collected 30 saves, while junior goalie Sean Bertoni (Franklin, MA) had 45 in defeat for UMass Boston.

Amherst returns to action tomorrow (Saturday) at 4 p.m. at ECAC East opponent Babson College.
