Notes: The Penmen look to get into the win column on Saturday when they entertain Molloy College on Larkin Field. Southern New Hampshire is heads into Saturday's non-conference matchup on the heels of a, 12-10, season-opening setback against Georgian Court University on February 16. SNHU started slow and found itself in a 9-4 hole at the half before mounting a furious second half comeback. After the two teams effectively traded scores in the third quarter, the Penmen potted three goals in the fourth to trim the deficit to a pair, but it was as close as they would come. Redshirt freshman Landon Goguen (Mattapoisett, Mass.) led the Southern New Hampshire attack with six points on three goals and three assists while senior Tom Schutz (Trumbull, Conn.) chipped in with three scores and a helper of his own. Sophomore Stephen Dubois (Goffstown, N.H.) also turned in a multi-point effort with a goal and an assist in front of freshman goalkeeper Alex Sturgess (Derry, N.H.), who stopped 13 shots in his first collegiate appearance.
