The Pioneers already had clinched a playoff spot, but are now sitting atop the conference following a 5-1 win at Chatham and a 5-2 victory over Stevenson. Senior Gregg Burmaster registered a hat trick in the Saturday victory moving UC to 12-3-1 in conference play and 15-6-2 overall.
With a minute remaining in the second period of Saturday's UCHC men's semi-final, the Utica College Pioneers had their backs against the wall. They trailed 2-0 to rival Neumann and their opportunity to host the conference championship was about to slip away.
Senior wide receiver Anthony Acevedo snagged a pair of touchdown catches and returned a punt for a score for first the time in his college career as the Utica College Pioneers topped Alfred University 35-14 on Senior Night at Charles A. Gaetano Stadium on Saturday night.
