The Rowan ice hockey team lost to division leading Scranton 5-2 at Hollydell on Saturday night. Mike Pisko led Scranton with two goals, Fred Brewer and Mike Keating scored for Rowan. Playing in the Great Northeast Collegiate Hockey Conference, this young team from Rowan are struggling with a 2-7-2-1 record has a roster of only 7 seniors and should only get better. Under the direction of Coach John Caulfield along with Assistant Coach Mike Husek, solid defense and back-checking are two key areas they seem to stress. Almost half the roster consists of players from the South Jersey Ice Hockey League that also includes former South Jersey Sports Online Tier 1 player of the year Fred Brewer leading the team in scoring with 10 goals as well as the league.
Against Scranton, the game was 3-2 early in the third period but Rowan could not get the equalizer, and two late goals sealed the win for Scranton. The next home game is Saturday November 18th at Hollydell at 8:15 against TCNJ. Come out and cheer on the Profs!
Notes: Other local players on the team include Chris Keyser, Colin Sheridan, Anthony Ciccotelli, Mike Chomic, Tom, Conner, Steven Glick, Matt Grossi, Jason McWilliams and Alex Szczepkowski. Lori Brewer, who ran the score box while her son was at Township, has continued the tradition at Rowan and according to the staff has brought stability to the organization.
