Black Knights’ unbeaten streak reaches 11 games

Army hockey’s marvelous run continued with offense from an unlikely source.

Sophomore defenseman Anthony Firriolo, who entered Saturday’s game against Long Island University with two goals on the season, recorded a hat trick and added two assists in a 6-3 victory on Senior Night.

Firriolo scored his first two goals on the power play and finished off Army’s scoring with an empty-net goal as the Black Knights extended their unbeaten streak to 11 games.

Firriolo’s five-point game was the first by an Army player since 2007.

The streak is longest in the Brian Riley era and longest since the 1995-96 team’s 12-game run.

Colin Bilek, the team’s leading scorer, added two power-play goals, his 15th and 16th on the season.

Trailing 1-0 after the first period, Army netted five goals in the second period. Jake Felker scored for the second straight night and John Zimmerman tied a career high with three assists.
