Sophomore forward John Rocchio (E. Greenwich, RI) scored Suffolk’s only goal Saturday afternoon at Walter Brown Arena as the Rams lost to Fitchburg State, 4-1.

Fitchburg State was anchored by junior goalie Devan McConnell (Lake Stevens, WA). He recorded 28 saves on 29 shots.

Jason Ledo (Somerset, MA), the senior forward for Fitchburg, started the scoring just 38 seconds into the game. Fitchburg freshman Andrew Hutton added another goal before Rocchio put the Rams on the board at 12:24 in the second period.

The visiting team added a goal in each of the final periods to wrap it up. Suffolk dropped to 6-13-1, and 5-6 in the ECAC Northeast race. The team travels to Plymouth State on Wednesday and will be back home Sunday, February 11th for their final home game of the season in a 3:25 p.m. game against Nichols.
