Men’s Hockey Cruises to 5-1 Victory Over Concordia in Exhibition

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard men's hockey defeated Concordia 5-1, on Sunday in an exhibition at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center. The Crimson was led by Adam Fox and Casey Dornbach, who both tallied two assists on the afternoon. In all, Harvard had 12 student-athletes register a point. 

Jack Badini opened the scoring quickly for the Crimson, burying a pass from Michael Floodstrand on a two-on-one 48 seconds into the first period. Then Wyllum Deveaux doubled the lead, skating through three Concordia defenders and wrist it home at 8:45. 

The scoring continued in the second as Henry Bowlby and Baker Shore each scored a goal at 5:16 and 9:48, respectively. Bowlby scored off a tip-in from an Adam Fox shot while Shore netted home a one-timer from an Adam Fox no-look pass. Both goals were also assisted by Dornbach.

Concordia scored in the third when Anthony Beauchamp netted a rebound in front of the net. 

What then looked like a second goal for the Stingers, ended up in the Crimson's as Concordia scored, but after review, Nathan Krusko stuck a shot off the inside pipe, just underneath the crossbar, off a Frederic Gregoire feed, giving Harvard its fifth goal of the game at 13:05.

Michael Lackey, Cameron Gornet, and Derek Schaedig all received time during the game and combined for 18 saves and a .947 save percentage.
