College Hockey:
RIT women’s coach McDonald takes plea deal

Rochester Institute of Technology women’s coach Scott McDonald, who was facing criminal charges for an alleged fight that happened in a men’s league game last December, pled guilty to harassment in Perinton Town Court Thursday morning.

McDonald was originally charged with assault for punching a man during a game at Thomas Creek Ice Arena in December.

The alleged victim, Taylor Scott, said the punch left him with three broken teeth and nerve damage in his jaw.

McDonald will be sentenced next month and was ordered to pay restitution.

    Wow…and the school sat him down for one game for this…. what if one of his players had done this? Can you say dismissed from the team? Well, maybe not in Rochester.
