Miami Postgame Notes
Miami vs. Windsor
October 5, 2013 - Exhibition
Oxford, Ohio - Steve Cady Arena
Miami dominated its exhibition game of the 2013-2014 season against Windsor, winning the game 8-2. Miami’s eight goals beats the team’s season-high from last season when the RedHawks defeated Alaska 6-2 Feb. 2. The last time Miami scored eight goals was in the 2010-2011 season when Miami defeated Lake Superior State 8-1 Feb. 25, 2011.
Miami kept the goals coming when junior Jimmy Mullin snuck in a second goal from the far side of the net seven minutes later. Senior Bryon Paulazzo and sophomore Riley Barber assisted in Miami’s second goal of the night.
The RedHawks remained quiet throughout the majority of the second half until junior captain Austin Czarnik scored the team’s third goal of the night on a power play. Senior Max Cook and Barber received assists on the goal. Barber would later earn two goals during the third period.
The Red and White wasted no time in the third period, scoring during the third minute of the third period. Sophomore Alex Gacek put the puck in the back of the net off assists from sophomores John Doherty and Kevin Morris.
Barber struck a minute later off an assist from Czarnik, giving him his first goal of the night. Barber was Miami’s leading scorer last season, totaling 15 goals. Czarnik led Miami in assists during the 2012-2013 season with 26 assists.
Barber earned his second goal of the night off another assist from Czarnik while the RedHawks were shorthanded due to a penalty for high sticking.
Greenberg earned his second goal of his college career at the end of the third period off assists from Mullin and junior Cody Murphy, putting Miami up eight goals to two.
Freshman goaltender Jay Williams started in net for the RedHawks, playing the first half of the game (30:38) and making 10 saves before teammate Ryan McKay came in to play the second half. McKay allowed two goals during his time in goal and made eight saves for the night.
The RedHawks will return to action October 11-12 when they take on the Ohio State Buckeyes. Miami and Ohio State will split the weekend with Miami playing in Columbus Friday night, then returning to Steve Cady Arena Saturday.
