Barron Strikes Twice in No. 2 Cornell's Road Win Over Colgate

Barron Strikes Twice in No. 2 Cornell's Road Win Over Colgate

Junior forward Morgan Barron scored twice on the power play, and the Cornell men's hockey team yielded just nine shots on goal for the first time since 2008 in smothering Colgate to a 4-1 victory on Friday at Class of 1965 Arena.

Returning to the lineup after a five-game absence, junior forward Kyle Betts assisted on senior forward Jeff Malott's goal just 2 minutes, 9 seconds into the game. Betts then scored what would turn out to be the game-winner later in the opening frame.

Cornell (16-2-4, 11-2-2 ECAC Hockey), which is ranked second in both the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls, needed just eight saves from junior goaltender Matthew Galajda to earn the victory. His first stop didn't come until late in the second period on a shot from more than 50 feet away. It marked the first time the Big Red conceded just nine shots on goal in a game in almost 11 years, dating back to a playoff victory over Rensselaer on March 14, 2008.
