Ohio State tops NU in hockey, 4-1

Niagara Gazette — STAFF REPORTS

A late comeback effort by Niagara was quickly snuffed out as Ohio State scored two quick late third period goals to pull away from the Purple Eagles, 4-1, in the first of the two hockey games between the two schools this weekend.

The game went scoreless for most of the first two periods, with the Buckeyes finally breaking the 0-0 tie at the 18:02 mark of the second. Tanner Fritz, who assisted his team’s other three goals, took a cross-ice pass from Max McCormick and then fired a slap shot by Niagara goaltender Jackson Teichroeb on his stick side.

Teichroeb made several clutch stops in the third period to keep the game close, but gave up his second goal of the game with his team shorthanded at the 12:16 mark. Ryan Dzingel put Ohio State up 2-0 with his power play goal.

Niagara cut the lead to 2-1 at the 18:17 mark of the third. Team captain Ryan Rashid scored on a rising shot that beat Buckeyes netminder Matt Tomkins. Hugo Turcotte recorded an assist on what proved to be Niagara’s only goal.

Just ten seconds later, Ohio State restored their two-goal lead. McCormick completed a quick 2-on-1 play by beating Teichroeb. He added his second goal of the game about one minute later, an empty-net tally.

Teichroeb finished the game with 25 saves while Tomkins stopped 30 Niagara shots on goal.

Niagara’s record dropped to 1-5-1 overall while the Buckeyes improved to 5-4-0. 

The teams will face each other again tonight at 8 p.m. in the Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio. The game will be broadcast live on WLVL 1340 AM Radio.
