Tigers ahead 1-0 after opening period

CC’s top line did what it couldn’t do in Sunday’s exhibition game.

They scored

Senior center Rylan Schwartz’s pass out front set up a hard shot by senior captain William Rapuzzi that got past Clarkson goalie Cody Rosen with 13:40 left in the first period to stake the host Tigers to a 1-0 lead.

The Tigers came out flying but Clarkson withheld the early storm. The Golden Knights almost took the lead when Allan McPherson’s shot clanged off the post behind CC goalie Josh Thorimbert with 15:24 left in the opening period. CC out shot the Knights 12-9 and had a number of early chances that did not result in shots early in the period.
