The Plymouth State University men’s ice hockey team, which won a pair of games last week, jumped two spots in both national polls for Division III hockey.
The two polls agree on the top three teams in the country, with Wisconsin-Stevens Point, the nation’s only other unbeaten team, as the unanimous No. 1 in both polls. SUNY Geneseo sits in second, with St. Norbert College third.
PSU blasted Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) foe Framingham State 8-3 last Thursday then beat Westfield State 5-2 in another league game on Saturday.
The Panthers wrap up the fall semester with a home game at Hanaway Rink against Endicott College on Thursday at 6 p.m.
PSU leads the nation with 5.56 goals per game while Endicott is second at 5.30.
Also on Monday, the Panthers’ Quinn Carroll, of Amherst, was selected to the MASCAC weekly honor roll. Carroll posted his first career three-point game (two goals, one assist) in the Panthers’ win over Framingham State.
The senior also chipped in with an assist in PSU’s victory over Westfield State.
Dartmouth’s Clark honored
Dartmouth College junior Adrian Clark on Monday was named ECAC hockey goalie of the week. The Toronto native went 1-0-1 over the weekend, picking up the win over Cornell (3-2) and earning the tie against Colgate (2-2).
He stopped 57 of 61 shot over the weekend.
Dartmouth plays UNH this weekend, hosting the Wildcats on Friday and visiting Durham on Saturday.
