PROVIDENCE, RI - Junior P.J. Yedon (Toronto, ONT) scored back-to-back goals to lead Colgate (3-5-0, 2-1-0) to a 3-2 victory over Brown (2-2-0, 2-2-0) in an ECAC men's ice hockey contest on Friday evening at Brown's Meehan Auditorium.

The Raiders took a 1-0 lead just 4:09 into the contest when Dmitry Yashin (Kanata, ONT) tallied on the power play. However, sophomore Nick Ringstad (Fairbanks, AK) tied the contest with just over two minutes remaining in the first period with junior Chris Legg (London, ONT) and senior J-F Labarre (St. Adolphe, QUE) earning assists on the play. The goal was his first of the season.

Brown took a 2-1 lead halfway through the second stanza when junior Jason Wilson (LaSalle, ONT) collected the puck from freshman Les Haggett (Norwood, NY) and blasted it into the back of the net for his first score of the season. Freshman Mike Meech (Coquitlam, BC) also earned an assist on the play as Haggett and Meech both tallied the first points of their young careers.

Yedon's spree began just 5:40 later as he scored the tying goal at 15:30 of the first and added the game with just 2:07 into the third period.

For the game, senior Brian Eklund (Braintree, MA) stopped 16 shots between the pipes for the Bears, who continue action Saturday, November 17, when they host Cornell in an Ivy and ECAC contest. The puck drops at 7:00 p.m.
