RPI enters quarterfinals

TROY, N.Y.  – RPI is moving on to the quarterfinals after beating Clarkson two-games-to-one in their best of three series.

They will take on second-seeded Saint Lawrence next. The Engineers have never beaten Saint Lawrence in the playoffs, but they said an upset is possible.

“I think we’ve just played more honest,” head coach Seth Appert said. “When this team has played honest, when we’ve been healthy and honest, we’ve been pretty good. And we’ve been hard to score on, and we’ve been hard to beat.”

“We realize it’s a tough opponent in Saint Lawrence,” senior defenseman Curtis Leonard said. “We’re going to approach it the same way just like any other weekend and give it our best shot.”

RPI opens the best of three quarterfinal round at Saint Lawrence Friday night at 7 p.m.
