The Pirates played host to visitor Jac-Cen-Del on Tuesday night and fell 5-1. The Pirates got off to a slow start on Tuesday, allowing 5 first half goals. The second half went much better for the Pirates, but it was too late as the Eagles had built a 5 goal lead. The Pirates came out in the second half and had their first shut out half of the season, by not allowing another Jac-Cen-Del goal the rest of the game. The second half saw the Pirates in the attack a lot more than in the first half, seeing 4 shots on goal from Nicholas Zapfe and 5 shots on goal from Vincent Pavy. In the game’s final minute, senior Vincent Pavy broke past the Eagle defense and scored his 10th goal of the season, allowing for the Pirates to not end the game scoreless. Freshman, Grayson Newhart (who started the game at forward) played goalkeeper in the second half for the Pirates and registered 5 saves and the second half shut out.
