First-year transfer Matt Robidoux of Cheshire has won just under 70 percent of his faceoffs in the team’s 1-1 start. After Coast Guard’s Colin Cashin won 20 of 23 faceoffs against Eastern in 2017, Cashin managed just 7-of-16 this year, with Robidoux winning 11 of 15 in the match in Eastern’s 15-7 road loss last Tuesday. In a 12-7 comeback road win at Gordon College Saturday, Robidoux won 12 of 18 and picked up five ground balls. After Eastern gave up the first seven goals of the match against Gordon, Robidoux won nine of his next 11 faceoffs when the Warriors surged to a 10-7 lead late in the match. In that run, Robidoux picked up four ground balls himself and two of the faceoff victories led directly to goals.
