Varsity Icemen Trounce Quakers, 9-1

Crimson Takes Ivy-Opener

By Elizabeth P. Bogert

The varsity hockey team established itself as a power to best this year by routing undefeated Pennsylvania, 9-1, last Saturday to take its opening Ivy League contest.

The Crimson exploded with eight goals in the second and third periods after taking a 1-0 lead in the first 20 minutes. Harvard's Joe Bertages made 7 saves compared to 12 by Penn's Peter Sampson in the opening period, and in the next two periods the Crimson proceeded to outshoot the Quakers, 32-16.

"They key thing we did was to forecheck them in the second and third periods so that they didn't get started." Harvard coach Bill Cleary said. "Our defense played well, and the forechecking turned the game around."

After the first period, the Crimson dominated play with a strong offense led by the "Local Line" of Bob McManama, Dave Hynes and Bill Corkery. Right-wing Corkery earned the hat trick and one assist while Hynes and McManama collected four and three points respectively, bringing the forwards' combined point total to 36 after three games.

Penn was unable to key on the Local Line, however, because of Harvard's depth. The trio of Randy Roth. Jim Thomas and Bob Goodenow notched six points, with Roth tallying twice, and Steve Dagdigian scored once from his right-wing position on the all sophomore fourth line.

Harvard's power-play unit worked effectively against Penn, as it had in the two previous games. Corkery scored the Crimson's first goal at 7.39 of the opening period after the Quakers' Paul Deigie had game into the bee for roughing.

In the second period the Crimson lengthened its lead from 1-0 to 4-1 with two goals by Corkery and one by McManama. McManama served on a slopshot from the blue line at 1:12, and just over one minute later Corkery talled for the second time on the power play with Penn's top scorer, Bob Reed, off the ice for tripping.

Penn scored its only goal at 7:46 of the middle period after Harvard's Jim Thomas had received a holding penalty. At 14:27 Corkery collected his third score of the night on a tip-in after defenseman Kevin Hampe had taken a shot from the point.

The Crimson sholled the Quaker goalie in the final period, taking 14 shots, five of which were goals. Goodonow and Thomas assisted Roth to make the score 5-1 with 15 minutes to play.

Hynes earned Harvard's first short-handed goal of the season at 9:49 of the period while defenseman Doug Elliott was serving a two-minute charging penalty and a ten-minute charging penalty. Hynes brought the puck down ice on the right, passed to Corkery on the left, and then tipped in Corkery's return pass.

Dagdigian, Roth and Hampe collected the last three goals, and a smile crossed Cleary's face when a fan in section 18 threw a flounder onto the ice in jubilation as the game's end neared.
