SERIES HISTORY

SCOUTING THE PRIDE
• Regis (1-1-0) is coming off a 3-1 victory over Emerson back on September 7.
• First-year Zack Acciardo and senior Branden Tan scored less than two minutes apart midway through the second half, and classmate Jared Barroso added a 90th-minute tally for the Pride, which trailed 1-0 at the half.
• Junior Josh Barrows and sophomores Freddie Beckmann and Ivan Ramirez have all seen in goal this fall combining to stop eight of 11 shots for a .727 save percentage over two matches.
• Regis returns 17 players, which includes last year's leading scorer, senior Ken Niyonzima (9-0-18), from a team that finished 8-6-2 overall.

SCOUTING THE BEAVERS
• Babson (2-2-0) is looking to snap a two-game skid following Tuesday's 3-2 OT setback at No. 6/2 Amherst.
• Senior Youcef Ziad scored in the 15th minute and sophomore Mitchell Collins headed home the equalizer in the 84th minute for the Beavers, who got eight saves from senior Steven Heintzelman in defeat.
• Collins (3-1-7) has scored in three of four matches this fall, Ziad (2-1-5) has a point in three consecutive games, and first-year Ryan Grund (1-2-4) leads the Green and White in assists.
• Heintzelman has gone 1-2-0 in three starts posting a 1.94 goals against average and a .783 save percentage.

HISTORY LESSON
• The Beavers are 33-1-2 all-time against current members of the GNAC, although Saturday's match will be their first since a 0-0 2OT draw with Saint Joseph's (Maine) in the first round of the 2016 NCAA Tournament.

END OF THE ROAD
• The Green and White will conclude its four-game road trip on Saturday before returning home to play eight of its next 11 matches.
• Babson has gone 1-2 during the first three games of the road swing and is 5-4-4 away from home since the start of last year.

SETUP MEN
• Seniors Ben Holman and Alex Crompton each recorded an assist in Tuesday's OT loss at Amherst.
• The helper was the second of Holman's career, while Crompton now has seven assists and 35 career points.
