Wednesday Notebook: Field hockey surges, men’s hockey slips

October 26th, 2011

Here’s our rundown on what happened last weekend, what to look for this weekend, and what’s making news this week:

  • Field hockey sweeps but won’t catch ODU. Northeastern will not host the CAA field hockey tournament in two weeks, but through no fault of their own. Old Dominion improved to 7-0 in conference on a weekend when Northeastern swept their games at Hofstra on Friday and vs. Boston University on Sunday. Sunday’s game was the Huskies’ last home game, and (if they don’t drop any games this weekend) solidified their hopes of an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. Crystal Poland scored her 25th goal of the season (which leads all of Division I), earning her CAA player of the week honors again ( Her scoring numbers are astonishing, especially when you consider that nobody else on the team even has more than 6. The Huskies finish the regular season this weekend with two road games.
  • It was a 0-point weekend for NU men’s hockey, with a loss on Friday to Merrimack (Boston Globe), then a heartbreaking loss in overtime to Boston College on Saturday (Boston Globe). More coverage of Saturday’s game from Boston Herald, College Hockey News,, Husky Hockey Blog
  • Holy Cross shocked BU over the weekend, and understandably, the team is savoring the win, writes Jennnifer Toland (Worcester Telegram). Former Huskies All-American Jason Guerriero was behind the Holy Cross bench for his first career game as an assistant coach, and was overjoyed:
First time on the bench ends with a HUGE win over Boston University 5-4. #unreal.
  • Speaking of BU, this column is making the rounds about whether Jack Parker should resign as head coach of the Terriers (Daily Free Press). There are a smattering of good points in the article: namely that Parker has seemingly failed to motivate his players of late. But honestly, the rest of this (as evidenced by the piles of laughter on Twitter – just do a bit of searching for it) is just garbage. We get that this writer was trying to be edgy and provocative, but honestly, the writer’s picture on the website coupled with the outlandish assertion that Parker has to resign is just comical.
  • Huskies legend Fernie Flaman will be inducted into the Mass Hockey Hall of Fame, a long-overdue recognition for Northeastern’s all-time winningest hockey coach (USCHO).
  • This weekend, men’s hockey is on the road in New Hampshire while the women travel up to Maine for the team’s first conference game. Both soccer teams are clinging on to CAA tournament berths, while field hockey is on the road, so the game you should be watching this weekend is Northeastern volleyball’s game against William & Mary on Friday night. The N Zone is having a costume contest, so it’s probably going to be a bit rowdy (and we wouldn’t have it any other way).

Jason Guerriero Hired As New Holy Cross Assistant Coach

October 11th, 2011

Former Northeastern hockey standout Jason Guerriero has been hired by Holy Cross as an assistant coach, USCHO reports.

Guerriero, who has played overseas for the last three seasons, played four years on Huntington Ave., amassing 49 goals and 98 assists. He was with the AHL’s Milwaukee Admirals from 2006-08 before heading to Europe. Last season, Guerriero played in Denmark, with the Soenderjyske Hockey Club, scoring 46 points.

This, his first coaching job, has HC head coach Paul Pearl excited.

“We are very excited to have Jason on our staff,” said Pearl. “He brings a ton of enthusiasm and hockey knowledge to the job and his work ethic is outstanding.”

HC 4, NU 3: Crusaders Beat Huskies For First Time Since 1947

October 29th, 2010

Behind two goals from unlikely hero Gianni Baldassari, the Holy Cross Crusaders came into Matthews Arena and defeated the Northeastern Huskies 4-3 in overtime.

Baldassari got the game-winner 1:21 into the extra period when he beat Chris Rawlings with a wrist shot from the slot.

Crusaders goaltender Thomas Tysowsky did what he needed to, making 28 saves and more importantly keeping his team in the game until they got their chance.

For the Huskies, Wade MacLeod got his first two goals of the season and Steve Silva added the third in the defeat. Silva now has scored in back-to-back games as he got the game winner last Saturday when the Huskies defeated UMass-Lowell 3-1.

For a game that was tied 3-3 going into the third period, there wasn’t much action until late when Northeastern managed to hit the post twice within a few minutes. First, it was Steve Quailer who connected with iron as he took a shot from right in front of Tysowsky. Later on, Drew Ellement hit the left pipe as he came in on an odd-man-rush.

The Huskies only committed four penalties in the game, but three of them were from freshman forward Cody Ferriero. After his third infraction, NU head coach Greg Cronin decided to sit him on the bench for the rest of the game.

“You can’t take three penalties and I didn’t see the first one but I had a real good view of the second and the third and that to me is really unnecessary,” Cronin said. “He’s a young kid, he’s got to learn a lesson.”

Chris Rawlngs made 21 saves for Northeastern. The four goals is the most he has surrendered so far this season.

Northeastern will try and move forward from the loss when they’ll take on the Bentley Falcons tomorrow night at 7 at Matthews Arena. WRBB will cover all the action with pre-game starting at 6:45 pm.
