William Paterson University Wins SECHL Crown

The William Paterson University Pioneers won their first Super East Collegiate Hockey League crown be defeating Montclair State University, 4-3, at the Albany County Hockey Facility Sunday.

The Pioneers received goals from Craig Junda, John Gomez, Chris Moser, and the game-winner from Shaun McTigue. Freshman goaltender Chris Bauer played a strong game in the final.

This is William Paterson’s second year in the SECHL. Before joining the league, the Pioneers played in the Mid-Atlantic College Hockey Association.

This was the third straight championship-game for the Pioneers. Two years ago, the Pioneers lost to Wagner College for the MACHA title. Last year, Siena College defeated WPU in the final.

With the win, the Pioneers extend their winning streak over rival Montclair State to 13 games. The team will be involved in the American Hockey College Association national championship tournament, beginning March 17. They hold a number one seed in the tournament.
