HOOKSETT, N.H. – The Southern New Hampshire Penmen are heading to the Northeast-10 Conference Ice Hockey Championship next weekend following their 3-2 victory over Saint Michael’s on Saturday afternoon.

SNHU responded to a first-period power-play goal by the visitors with two goals in rapid succession a period later.

Freshman Andy Somerville (Medford, Mass.) tied things up for the Penmen at 10:47, with freshman Cole Stewart (Alpharetta, Ga.) added another goal exactly two minutes later.

Although Saint Michael’s tied things up just before the second intermission, senior Artem Efimov (Khimki, Russia) found the game-winner just past the halfway point of the third period.

The championship game will be a Queen City Cup matchup, with Saint Anselm defeating Assumption 2-1 in the other semifinal, requiring three overtimes to get the win.
