Matt Paget's four goals help Ice Dogs rally past Framingham State, 5-4January 18, 2007
WORCESTER, Mass. --- Junior center MATT PAGET (Hingham, MA/Hingham/Winchendon School) scored a career-high four goals and sophomore left wing and linemate SEAN STAID (Peabody, MA/St. Mary's/Northfield-Mt. Hermon) assisted on four as Assumption College defeated Framingham State College, 5-4, in ice hockey THURSDAY night at the Buffone Rink.
Paget is the 24th Greyhound to record four or more goals in a single game and the third in the last two seasons (see complete list below). Junior teammate JIM TRAHON (Needham, MA/Needham/Salisbury School) scored four goals at Lebanon Valley (11/5/05) and former teammate JEFF ILVONEN '06 (Auburn, MA/Auburn) had four at Suffolk (1/12/06).
JEFF TULLY '90 (nee Southbridge, MA) was the last Hound to accomplish the feat at home (Buffone Rink) against Villanova (12/3/89).
GREG BIGELOW '06 (2/26/05) is the last Greyhound with four assists in a game getting four in an 11-8 Northeast-10 Conference playoff win over Franklin Pierce (2/26/05), while Paget had four in the 2004-05 season opening win over Nichols (8-3) (11/9/04).
Paget opened the scoring for the Greyhounds just 4:33 into the first period taking a feed from Staid and beating Framingham State goalkeeper MATTHEW TRUSZ to the glove side. The Rams NICHOLAS GLUM tied the game on a rebound flurry less than two miniutes later before Trahon scored on a wrist shot from 20-feet in front to give the home team a 2-1 first-period advantage.
The Rams would outscored the Greyhounds 2-1 in the second period to deadlock the game at 3-3 entering the final period. Paget scored on a power play on a nifty move and pass by freshman right wing JIM CAPULLI (Hampstead, NH/Pinkerton Academy/Williston-Northampton) at 2:03 of the period to five the Hounds a two-goal advantage. Framingham State's TIM RICHARD scored on the power play to make it 3-2 at 5:58 of the period and the Rams tied it at 19:07 on a goal by JONATHAN LAMKEN.
In the final period Paget took matters into his own hands scoring an even strength goal assisted by both linemates at 4:19 and then adding a power play effort at 7:59 as the Greyhounds peppered Trusz with seven shots in all out blitz attack. The Hounds converted two of five power-play attempts in the game.
Glum scored his second goal of the game at 13:31 for Framingham State to make it a one-goal game once again but Hounds freshman netminder JAMIE DEGIULIO (Peabody, MA/Tilton school, NH) was equal to the task turnign aside 11 shots in the third period and 40 overall for his third win.
The Greyhounds outshot the Rams, 45-44, for the game. Trusz had 40 saves for Framingham State. The Hounds line of Paget-Capulli-Staid combined for 11 points---Paget (4 goals), Staid (4 assists) and Capulli (3 assists).
The Greyhounds return to action SATURDAY night at the Buffone Rink hosting Plymouth State University at 7:30 p.m. The annual Alumni Game will take place at 5 p.m.
