Senior Giancarlo Iuorio stunned the UConn Huskies with three goals to push the Niagara men's hockey team to a 3-0 victory on Friday evening in front of a boisterous crowd at Dwyer Arena.

Iuorio tallied a goal in the opening minute of play and added another two quick goals in the second stanza to give the Purple Eagles (3-2-2; 2-0-0 AHA) its second win in two games over AHA foes. This was the senior’s first hat-trick of his career.

Senior Marc Zanette also had a three-point night for NU, contributing three helpers on the night while junior Ryan Murphy added two assists. Junior goaltender Carsen Chubak pushed aside 34 UConn (0-3-1; 0-2-0 AHA) shots for his second shutout of the season.

The Purple Eagles look to sweep the series against the Huskies tomorrow. The puck is set to drop at 7:05 pm.
