Sunday brought the weekend to a close with some scary action in the UAA: No. 12 Carnegie Mellon escaped from the clutches of NYU, Emory ran down No. 13 Brandeis, and No. 14 Rochester fought their way out of St. Louis in overtime.
Early in the day, NYU scored twice in the first half to grab a 2-0 lead against Carnegie Mellon. Colm Dillane and Mickey Ingerman scored both Violet goals in the first five minutes, and stingy defense kept the Tartans off the board through the first half. The come-back started in the 65th minute with a goal by Mike Ferraco, followed by a header from Moni Sallam to equalize. The winning goal came from Jerome Reano late in the match, giving the Tartans the important UAA win as they improved to 3-1-0, and 10-2-1 overall.
Emory came back from a one goal deficit to upset No. 13 Brandeis 3-1 to remain atop the UAA standings, and No. 14 Rochester needed overtime to escape with a 2-1 win from Francis Field at Washington University. Alex Swanger scored the game winner just 52 seconds into overtime.
In WIAC action, Wisconsin-Whitewater blanked Finlandia 4-0, remaining undefeated in conference play.
In women's action, No. 2 Washington U defeated Rochester 4-2, with two goals from Jessica Johnson, and No. 5 Trinity (Texas) cruised past Austin 7-0, to improve to 15-0-1 and 9-0 in SCAC play.
No. 12 Emory blanked Brandeis 3-0, and No. 17 Carnegie Mellon edged NYU 2-1.
Penn State-Berks won their fourth match by 10 goals or more as the Nittany Lions defeated Wells 11-0. The Lions are in first place in the NEAC at 11-0-0 and stand at 14-3-1 overall.
