RIT on TV: Homecoming Hockey WHEC10 News 10 NBC

August 19, 2019

>>Last year the RIT Tigers open the season
with two straight wins one of those was over the University of
Michigan in Ann Arbor. Today the Tigers will try to avoid an O and 2
start to the season when they welcome those very Michigan Wolverines to the
Blue Cross arena. These two schools playing in front of a sold-out crowd
first period Wolverines wasting no time Phil Di Guiseppe comes right down main
street too easy. Big Blue up one nothing. Two minutes later Wolverines
strike again Derek DeBlois orders top shelf just like that Michigan is up 2 to
nothing Big Blue scored four goals in the first.
Cristoval Nieves with a twisted wrister here and the nearly 11,000 on hand are
stunned… but we still had two periods left of play. Whatever coach
Wayne Wilson said in between periods must’ve worked Tigers on a power play that really only
needed one man Mike Colavecchia making defenders dizzy there beat Steve
Racine for the Tigers first goal. To the end of the second Tigers have crawled back to within one. Ben Lynch sends a rocket that gets tipped by
Nolan Descoteaux just like that. We have a ball game. Under a minute to
play now in the second and man that stood tall between the pipes makes a giant
mental mistake Evan Allen catches Jordan Ruby napping to get the goal get go-ahead goal late
Big Blue never look back they added two in the third including an empty-netter. Tigers
couldn’t overcome a dismal first period 7 to 4 is your final.

    To clarify: Michigan is not "Big Blue." We don't call ourselves that, never have. ESPN seems to have latched onto that for some reason. That's the Kentucky Wildcats, or the New York Giants, or whomever else you want. Thanks!
