WORCESTER, MA - Sophomore Rob Forshner scored two goals and freshman Adam Roy made 37 saves in goal as Holy Cross held on for a 3-1 win in Atlantic Hockey action Friday night at the Hart Center.

Junior Bear Trapp put the Pioneers up early with a powerplay goal 6:03 into the game. Trapp took a pass from senior Alexandre Parent (Boisbriand, QC) and rifled a shot from the left face-off circle that went high over the shoulder of Crusader goaltender Adam Roy and under the crossbar into the net.

Holy Cross tied the game midway through the second period. At the 8:25 mark, sophomore Brodie Sheahan fired a shot from the blue-line that looked like it would go wide of the net. However, freshman Everett Sheen was in front to redirect the puck into the net for his team-leading 15th goal of the year.

Forshner scored the game wining goal 34 seconds into the third period. With the Crusaders on the power-play, Forshner corralled a loose puck in the offensive zone, moved into the slot and fired a shot past Stefan Drew for his fourth goal. Forshner added an empty net goal with 23 seconds left to seal the win for Holy Cross.

Sacred Heart had several good opportunities to tie the score in the third period. The Pioneers out shot the Crusaders 38-27 for the game. Drew made 25 saves in the loss.

Sacred Heart and Holy Cross close out their series Saturday night at the Milford Ice Pavilion. Face-off is set for 7:05 pm.
