  1. Exciting match! Quite proud of RPI Men’s Hockey Team for holding their ground against Northeastern. Would say it’s a well-deserved draw, though a win would’ve been better. Keep pushing, boys!

  2. Good punctuation and grammar, disagree: I must say, I was rather disappointed with the match performance. The RPI Men’s Hockey Team should have easily won against Northeastern considering their past records. Being pleased with a draw seems a tad too lenient an outlook.
