Joe Buicko '11
and Chris Lorenc '10 chipped in one goal and three assists apiece against Tufts. Brandon Broad '12 was credited with two assists. Calvin Bartel '13 made 30 saves and improved his record to 4-3-0 in goal. The Continentals snapped a three-game losing skid.

Hamilton (6-6-1 overall, 3-5-0 NESCAC) set the tone early as Scarpino scored his first goal just 1 minute, 21 seconds into the first period. Sam Choate '12 made the score 2-0 with his first goal this season at 11:02, and Scarpino made it a three-goal cushion 15 seconds later.

The Continentals continued to pour it on in the second period. Buicko notched a short-handed goal 1:45 into the period for a 4-0 lead. Bryan Kelly '12 followed with his third goal as Hamilton was on the power play at 7:15. Scarpino's third goal of the night -- and ninth this season -- was another short-handed tally that made the score 6-0 at 9:32. Lorenc's ninth goal gave the Continentals a comfortable 7-0 lead with 4:03 left in the period.
Tufts (7-4-1, 4-3-1) scored all three of its goals in the third period. Hamilton was 1-for-3 on the power play and held a 40-33 advantage in shots. The Jumbos were just 1-for-9 with the extra skater. The Continentals have won the last three meetings with Tufts and now lead the all-time series, 8-3.
