BRYN ATHYN, Pa. – The Bryn Athyn College men's ice hockey team was upended by Curry College in the backend of a two-game weekend series, 6-1, Saturday afternoon at Wintersports Ice Sports.
Curry, who owned a 33-20 shot advantage, improves to 9-5-1 after completing the series sweep. Bryn Athyn is now 5-7-0 overall.
Lionel Mauron started a three-point day by scoring the game's opening goal on the power play at the 2:15 mark of the first period. Mauron received the puck in the slot on the rebound of a blocked shot at the right post and ripped a shot into the upper left corner.
Kasper Kjellkvist turned another fortuitous bounce into Curry's third goal, second on the power play with 2:50 left in the opening period. Adam Valadao had a shot attempt blocked, and just like Mauron's goal, Kjellkvist had the puck come right to him for a shot at an open net.
Curry widened the gap to 5-0 after 40 minutes of play with a pair of goals during the second period. Kup recorded his second goal of the afternoon at 9:19 after getting a pass from Mauron. After assisting on Curry's first two goals of the game, White put his name into the goal column at 15:13. Snow notched his third assist of the game on the play.
Kjellkvist scored the Colonels' final goal at 7:30 of the third period from the slot after getting a backhand from Valadao along the right boards.
Vojtech Luza broke up the shutout two minutes later when he found the puck in a scrum in front of the Curry net and poked it by Cody Murch for a power-play goal.
Murch recorded 19 saves to pick up his second win of the season. McKenzie Chalmers had 19 stops in 35:13 of action. Isaac Syre came in after Curry's fifth goal and stopped eight of the nine shots he faced.
The Colonels were 2-for-7 on the power play, while the Lions went 1-for-7.
