Game 6: Albany @ Garber @3 on Tues. 3/3

The Great Danes are 2-1 with one goal wins over Drexel and Harvard and a large loss to Cornell. This will be their first road contest.

Keeping the momentum, the large primates win this one :!:

This game will be close, Albany always plays us well.

Thompson boys' era was especially hard on UMass.

Weather is high 50's with cloud/light rain near half. Hopefully, students show up to cheer.

A 17-11 win, pulling away in the second half.

Many Gorillas with excellent stats today. Most impressive: after struggling against one of the best FOGOs on Saturday, Hochmann today wins 26 of 33!

Trainor is more and more serving the role of 'iron man' on both O and D. Seems reborn toward dominating, which is great to see.

Umass did a great job on gb's and forcing errors, although Albany did its share of bad passing.

2 or 3 Sports center type goals by each side. UMass attack had a good game as well.

Looked like a good, late-arriving crowd for the second half.

^ Well, there was a Top10 goal shown this morning, but it was Tehoka Nantikote scoring one of his five goals against us.

From Wiki: "Nanticoke is a member of the Iroquois Nationals and has represented the under-19 side at the 2016 FIL U-19 World Championship. He is now a part of the 2019 FIL Indoor World Championship team playing for the Iroquois Nationals."
