Neumann to Face Manhattanville for ECAC West Crown

Manhattanville College will drop in on Neumann University on Saturday night when the two schools meet for the 2013 ECAC West title.

No. 3 seed Neumann (18-6-3 overall) defeated No. 2 Hobart (19-5-2) on Feb. 23 as Braely Torris made 43 saves for the Knights in a 2-0 win over the sixth-ranked Statesmen, 2-0, with senior blueliner Scott Farrell notching the game-winning goal in the second period.

No. 4 seed Manhattanville (15-9-3) ousted top-seeded and seventh-ranked Utica (20-5-1) that same night, as Paul Sirignano scored in sudden-death overtime to give the Valiants a 2-1 victory while Alex Scola made 40 saves. 

Neumann, now ranked 12th nationally, and Manhattanville (14th) went 1-1-1 against one another this season, and previously met for the 2007 ECAC West crown in a game won by the Valiants, 5-4, in OT.
