Cross hockey suffers tough loss to Xaverian

The Holy Cross hockey team suffered another tough loss, this time, 3-2, to the Xaverian Clippers at Abe Stark Rink in Coney Island Sunday night.

Xaverian scored two goals in the first period and went ahead 3-0 early in the second and it looked like Mike Mitchell's team would be in for another long game.

But then Mike Massa scored an unassisted goal on a slap shot from the blue line to bring Holy Cross to within two. The Knights scored again with 2:08 left when Phil Toth poked one in, assisted by Sean O'Neill. Vic DiRico stopped 20 of 23 shots for Holy Cross. The Knights return to the ice Saturday at 9:30 p.m. to take on Monsignor Farrell at Abe Stark Rink in Coney Island.

DiRico and O'Neill will join Eddie Bergin as Holy Cross representatives in the 15th annual Senior Classic Game at Madison Square Garden Sunday at 4 p.m.

Xavier 9, Christ the King 0. It was a long night on the ice for the Royals last Thursday night at Murray Rink in Yonkers. Keith Salbeck, Brian Kushner and Matthew Nihan scored two goals apiece for Xavier. John Lee and Gavin Kostoglian also scored for the Knights. Mark Dziemian had three assists and Jared Marinos added two for Xavier. Christ the King only managed 12 shots against Matt Healy.
