By Framingham State athletics

FOXBOROUGH – The Framingham State University ice hockey team received three goals from junior Ryan Paul as the Rams tallied three, second period goals en route to a 5-2 victory over Stonehill College in non-conference action at the Foxboro Sports Center on Saturday night.

The win is the first for the Rams this season.

Framingham State is now 1-8 overall.

Stonehill College is now 1-6-1 this season.

HOW IT HAPPENED:

  • Stonehill grabbed a 1-0 lead with the first period’s only goal just under four minutes into the game.
  • Paul netted the equalizer just three minutes into the second period off a feed from freshman Matthew Paiotti.
  • Just over a minute later, Stonehill reclaimed the lead when Jack Hall found the back of the net unassisted.
  • After that it was all the Rams as they would score the final four goals of the contest.
  • Paul once again knotted the game at 2-2 when he converted off feeds from freshman Matthew Irwin and Erick Walsh just over five minutes into the second.

  • Paiotti put the Rams in the lead for good with a power play tally with just under four remaining in the second. Paiotti converted off feeds from sophomore Soren Colstrup and freshman Luca Olivo.
  • The Rams would add a pair of insurance goals in the third period. Junior Matthew Siegel found the back of the net unassisted just 2:17 into the third and then with just 1:30 remaining in the game he hit Paul with a pass. Paul was able to convert for the hat trick in the game.

  • Stonehill held a 47-31 edge in shots for the game, but was 0-for-4 on the power play, while the Rams converted on 1-of-2 with the man advantage.
  • Freshman Blake Carlson earned the victory in net for the Rams allowing two goals while making 45 saves.
