#14 Manhattanville hockey shuts out Morrisville State 3-0

MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – Evan Michalchuk (Edmonton, AB) scored twice within a minute in the second period to lead 14th nationally ranked Manhattanville College men’s hockey to a 3-0 win over host Morrisville State College Sunday afternoon in Morrisville.

Despite a strong start by the Mustangs, Manhattanville was first to put a score on the board as Steve Cunningham (Boulder, CO) beat Morrisville State netminder Caylin Relkoff (Grand Forks, BC) for the score 8:44 into the first period.

Holding to a one goal advantage, it wasn’t until the 18th minute of the second period when Michalchuk intercepted a cross-ice pass inside the Valiants offensive zone that Manhattanville was able to net its second score, and less than a minute later, tallied another score from Michalchuk for the three goal advantage heading into the final stance.

Pierre-Olivier Lemieux (Baie Comeau, PQ) secured the win for the Valiants, stopping seven of his game total 31 in the final period, as Manhattanville improves to 13-4 overall.

Relkoff made 24 stops for Morrisville State, including 10 in each the second and third periods.

Morrisville State held the 31-27 advantage in shots on goal over Manhattanville.
