MONSEY, NY – Ramapo suffers second consecutive whitewashing at the hands of Stevens Institute of Technology, 2-0.
From the outset, Stevens dominated play. Ramapo junior goalie Keith Gay was spectacular in net. He stopped all 22 shots taken by the Ducks in the first period. Ramapo managed only 7 shots on goal. The period ended with neither team scoring.
Ramapo settled down in the second period cutting Stevens’ number of shots on goal in half. But Ramapo still could not manage much of an offense with only 6 shots on goal. Once again Gay was remarkable between the Ramapo pipes. Ramapo’s Ryan Worth was serving a 2 minute minor penalty for delay of game at 12:30. One second after he returned to the ice, Ducks Richard Hong scored the game’s first goal at 14:31 on an assist by Greg Caminnici.
Stevens extended their lead to 2-0 when Andrew MacInnes scored at 6:25 of the third period on Greg Caminnici’s second assist of the game.
Without Keith Gay’s stellar performance, Stevens could have easily scored six or seven goals more goals. Gay ended the night with 41 saves on 43 shots. Ducks Goalie Matt Smith stopped all 18 Roadrunners shots for the shutout.
For the second game in a row, Ramapo took excessive number of senseless penalties. They committed 2 minor penalties in the first period, 5 in the second period, 3 more in the third. Ramapo players took 10 minor penalties for 20 minutes. That was the same number of penalty minutes the Roadrunners had in their previous game. That game also resulted in a shutout. Freshman defenseman Ryan Worth was responsible for four of the Roadrunner penalties.
Ramapo’s next game is Sunday, October 18 in East Meadow, NY against Hofstra.
