Over the weekend, the Robert Morris Men's D1 Hockey Team opened their season with an exhibition game against Wilfrid Laurier. The Colonials pulled a win and scored ten goals against Wilfrid Laurier and are looking good for their regular season opener against Quinnipiac.

Robert Morris had a difficult time in the beginning of the first period, when the Colonials allowed a Golden Hawks goal only 14 seconds in. By the end of the first period, RMU scored the next three goals and held the lead for the rest of the game. Wilfrid Lauier only had a total of four goals and they were struggling the rest of the periods.

A sophomore forward, Scott Jacklin, had a big night on Sunday. He had the first RMU goal that tied the game and also had a goal early in the second period. Zach Hervato, a senior forward, also had a big night and scored a goal in every period. Colin South, Zac Lynch, Jeff Jones, Mac Roy, and Chase Golightly scored the other five goals.

Robert Morris dominated the shots-on-goal during the entire game. The Colonials had 41 shots-on-goal while Wilfrid Lauier only had 13 shots-on-goal. There were a total of 20 penalties called throughout the game. WLU players; Mike Mascioli, Joseph Vanni, and Drew Henry each had disqualifications.
