MIDDLEBURY OPENS SEASON AT 5-0

MIDDLEBURY, Vermont - Middlebury picked up its fifth straight shutout to open the season as they topped Colby-Sawyer, 4-0. The Panthers have not allowed a goal in their first 450 minutes of action this season, while this is the best start to a year since the '98 team opened the season at 13-0.

Sam Raymond opened the scoring as he headed in a pass from Andrew Stewart on a restart at 16:41. Stewart made it a 2-0 game as he converted a drop pass from Andy Peters from inside the area at the 24:58 mark. Following a goal from Matt Haddad at 39:54, the game was delayed 30 minutes due to lightning. The game remained at 3-0 until Gabe Wood scored his first career goal at 72:46 to make it a 4-0 final.

Zack Toth made two saves for the shutout in his collegiate debut, while Adam Perron made six stops for Colby-Sawyer.
