Two PSC Men's Ice Hockey players earn ECAC Weekly Honor

PLYMOUTH, N.H. - A pair of Plymouth State College hockey players have been selected to the Eastern College Athletic Conference Weekly Honor Roll for their performances in PSC's game last week.

Junior Kevin Creighton (Falmouth, MA) and freshman Larry Forgue (Nashua, NH) were PSC representatives on the ECAC Northeast Division Weekly Honor Roll. They were instrumental in PSC's 5-2 conference victory at Lebanon Valley College in Penn., last Friday.

A 5'9", 162-pound forward, Creighton scored two goals and assisted on another, leading the Panther offense. One of his goals was a power play marker as he increased his season totals to four goals and six assists, tied for third on the team. Junior Eric Ryan (North Chelmsford, MA) also scored two goals for the Panthers at Lebanon Valley, improving his team leading totals to 10 goals (which is tied for sixth in the league) and six assists in 10 games.

A 5'8", 155-pound goalie, Forgue continued his outstanding freshman campaign with a 25-save effort vs. Lebanon Valley. Forgue has established himself as the team's top goalie, posting an impressive 1.60 goals against average and a .941 saves percentage and ranking second in the league in both categories.

Plymouth State's win over Lebanon Valley puts the Panthers at 6-4-0 overall under first-year head coach Mike Bonelli, and 4-2-0 in the 18-team ECAC Northeast. The Panthers are tied for sixth in the league, but have played only six of the 17 scheduled league games. The top eight teams in the Northeast will advance to the post-season tournament. PSC is tied for second in scoring defense, allowing only 2.40 goals per game.

The Panthers are now idle for final exams and the holidays. Eleven of the remaining 13 contests are conference match-ups, beginning with a home game on Saturday, Jan. 9, against Johnson & Wales at Waterville Valley Ice Arena (7:00 p.m.).
