NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Wesleyan men's hockey team (4-3-0) used a pair of first period goals to propel them past Albertus Magnus 3-1 on Friday evening. The contest was the final game of the 2019 season for the Cardinals, while the Falcons (0-8-2) wrap up first-semester play on Saturday.

- Wesleyan extended the lead to 3-0 with 3:03 elapsed in the middle frame. Alex Giummo sent a pass back to Colin Cobb in transition, before Cobb beat Diamond glove-side for his first collegiate tally.
- The Falcons capitalized on a power play with 3:11 on the clock in the third when Cameron Weitzman scored through the five-hole, but that was as close as they would get.
