Last week the Profs took on the Temple Owls. The Profs won easily in a physical game, 5-2.
Rowan jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first period when Eric Schenk scored. Then Tim Larkin scored a highlight reel goal to increase the Profs lead to 2-0. The Owls cut the lead in half by scoring on a two-on-one. In the second period, a big hit by Erich Moen led to another great goal by Larkin. Later in the period, a Temple player took a bad by elbowing JC Caulfield. Caulfield would then deflect a shot from the point to score on the ensuing power play. The Profs weren’t done there, Travis Trent quickly scored on a two-on-one to give the Profs a 5-1 lead. Temple scored once more before the end of the second period.
During the third period the game became rough. All the players were getting involved and every time a player touched the puck they were expecting to get hit. With 14 seconds left in the game a line brawl broke out.
The league reviewed the video of the brawl and issued supplementary discipline. Two coaches and six players were suspended for a total of 22 games.
The Profs next home game is Saturday against Delaware at 8:15.
