NEVILLE TWP., Pa. —  Following a Friday Robert Morris victory and a Bentley win on Saturday, the Colonials faced the Falcons on Sunday for all the marbles in the best-of-three first-round Atlantic Hockey playoff series.

The Colonials will forge ahead, thanks to Daniel Mantenuto’s late second period goal that stood up as the game-winner in a 3-2 victory.

Robert Morris made the board first with a shot by Mike Louria from Brandon Watt and Spencer Dorowicz. Alex Tonge swooped in just minutes later, solidifying the lead with a short handed goal.

Before the end of the first, Bentley’s Kyle Schmidt found his third goal of the weekend, cutting the lead 2-1 for the Colonials. Bentley wasn’t going down without a fight. Charlie Marchand nets his second of the weekend to tie the game. Before the end of the period, Mantenuto took back the lead, and collected the game winner.

Robert Morris will head to Holy Cross for a best-of-three quarterfinals, the winner will head to Rochester for the semi-finals and championship.
