The Hoyas took to the ice today in an all important double conference game (IHC and MAPHL) and loss in a heartbreaker 3-2 to St. Stephens/Agnes. The Hoyas jumped out to an early lead goal by James Flannery midway through the first period. Late in the period St. Stephens tied it up at 1. Heading into the second period St. Stephens gained momentum and was able to maintain continuous pressure in the Hoyas defensive zone and took the lead 2-1. Into the third period the Hoyas were unable to get many shots off and struggled against a tough Saints defense. The Hoyas were able to cut the lead to 3-2 on a goal by James Flannery assisted by Daniel Cole but could not tie it up with only a minute left to play. The Hoyas take the ice again next Monday against Wootton in Rockville.
