AMDEN, Conn. – Defenseman Spiro Goulakos scored his fourth goal in the five games, but the Colgate men’s hockey team fell,, 3-2, in overtime at Quinnipiac on Friday night.

Colgate (4-5-1, 0-2-1 ECAC) also got a goal from Thomas Larkin with his coming on the power play. Ryan Johnston and Robbie Bourdon each added assists in the game. Eric Mihalik pushed aside a season-high 34 shots, including 16 in the third period to keep the Raiders in the game.

The Bobcats (4-3-1, 1-0-0 ECAC) were led by Russell Goodman, who tallied two goals, including the gamewinner 1:22 into overtime. Loren Barron also scored with his coming on the power play, which was Quinnipiac’s first of the season on the man advantage. Zach Davies added three assists and Clay Harvey posted two helpers. Eric Hartzell was not tested for most of the night as Colgate managed only 10 shots on goal. He made eight saves to earn the win.

The Bobcats got the first lead of the game with 11:52 remaining in the first period with Goodman giving the home team a 1-0 lead. The goal came right after Quinnipiac was awarded its first power play and the assist went to Matthew Peca and Dan Federico.

However, it didn’t take long for the Raiders to answer as Goulakos scored his fourth of the season and fourth in the last five games. The goal came exactly 17 seconds after the Bobcats earned the first goal. Colgate then got its first power play chance and kept its hot streak going with its seventh goal with the extra skater in the last five games. Thomas Larkin was credited with the goal, which was his first of the season with the assist to Robbie Bourdon for his seventh point of the year.

In the second period, the Bobcats evened the score with 2:50 left in the frame with their first power play goal of the season, which came from Loren Barron. The Raiders were outshot 11-4 in the frame.

Neither team could find the net in the third period. Quinnipiac had two chances on the power play and outshot the Raiders 16-2, but Mihalik kept Colgate in the game as he stopped at 16 shots.

In overtime, Goodman ended it with his second of the night with assists to Harvey and Davies. The goal came 1:22 into the extra frame. The Raiders were outshot 37-10 in the game and both teams went 1-for-4 on the power play.

Colgate will be back in action tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m. as the Raiders travel to Princeton to take on the Tigers, who upset Cornell tonight.
