PRINCETON, N.J. — Mike Vecchione, Spencer Foo and Sebastian Vidmar tallied three points each to lead No. 18 Union to a 7-3 victory over Princeton Friday night.

After Vidmar netted the first goal of the game for the Dutchmen, Max Véronneau and Ryan Kuffner answered for Princeton to send the Tigers to the locker room leading 2-1.

The Union offense came out firing in the second stanza, tallying five unanswered goals to take a commanding 6-2 lead. After Vecchione tallied his 15th of the season to tie the game 2-2, Nick DeSimone, Foo, Brendan Taylor, and Brett Supinsksi padded the Dutchmen lead and chased Princeton goaltender Colton Phinney from the net with 1:23 left in the period.

Véronneau picked up his second power-play goal of the game at 7:24 of the third for Princeton, but the Tigers were unable to mount a comeback against Union goaltender Alex Sakellaropoulos, who finished with 26 saves.

Vas Kolias added a goal for the Dutchmen with one second left in the game.

Phinney made 19 saves for Princeton before being replaced by Ben Halford, who stopped 12 of 13 shots in the third period.
