Ice Hockey remains in bottom of the MASCAC

The Framingham State Rams hosted Worcester State on Saturday, Jan. 2 in a MASCAC matchup. 

The game was tied at 1-1 deep into the first period, but was postponed with 4:20 remaining in the period due to an issue with the goal and the pegs.

The game will be continued at a later date. 



The Rams’ next game came against the Fitchburg State Falcons in another MASCAC matchup. 

The Falcons took control of the game early as Kyle Hillick netted a power-play goal in the third minute of the opening period. The goal was assisted by Nick DiNocala and Sascha Figi. 

Figi scored a goal of his own on another power play in the 19th minute of the first period to put the Falcons up 2-0. 

In the 10th minute of the second period, Patrick Germain scored the Falcons’ third goal of the game, despite the team being shorthanded.

Fitchburg kept up their dominance in the final period, as they scored three goals off the sticks of Ryan Murphy, Christopher Vicario, and Hillick. The three goals wrapped up the scoring for the game, as Fitchburg defeated Framingham 6-0.

The Rams were heavily outshot in the game, 55-32. Framingham goalie Adam Calabrese was forced to make 49 saves on 55 shots. 

Framingham also struggled on the power play, going 0-for-6 on the night and giving up a short-handed goal. 

The Rams’ inability to prevent shots and their struggles in the faceoff circle contributed to their eighth straight loss. 

Framingham is now 2-17-1 on the season and remain winless in the conference at 0-12-1.
