Shelton, Conn. - Tyler Hackett scored two goals, and Kieran Hurley had a goal and an assist as the Post University men's hockey team topped St. Michael's, 4-2 on Tuesday evening. The win snapped an eight game losing streak as the Eagles sit at 3-9 on the season. Hurley got the Eagles on the board early at the 2:08 mark in the first period on an assist from Noah Wild and Steven Mullally. After St. Michael's tied the game on a goal from Nic Hermary, Hackett scored his first goal of the game on a pass from Niko Grollman to give the Eagles a 2-1 lead at the 17:02 mark.
