After four years of pouring my energy into the College, The Signal and other organizations, I still find myself unsatisfied with my collegiate experience. Like there is some kind of unfinished business I haven?t taken care of.
The thing is, everything is taken care of.
The Trenton Devils ended the season with an upset win over the first-place Cincinnati Cyclones Saturday night.
Though the T-Devils did not qualify for playoff contention, the 2-1 win kept their fans satisfied.
Cincinnati scored the first goal 0:21 into the game.
The Trenton Devils won their first game ever in Elmira as they took down the Jackals 5-3.
Forward Chris Poli had the game-winner in the contest after the T-Devils put up four unanswered goals in the third frame. With less than five minutes left in the game, left wing Jason Paige and Poli created a two-on-one and Poli converted on a Paige pass.
The T-Devils went 1-2 last week, keeping them in sixth place in the ECHL North Division with a 24-33 record.
The T-Devils pulled out a convincing 7-2 win over the Dayton Bombers Friday.
Center Jim Henkel led the charge with two goals and two assists on the night to gain a game on the fifth-place team.
The Trenton Devils went .500 over the last two weeks, with one of their three wins coming against the then first-place Cincinnatti Cyclones.
Goaltender Jason Smith recorded his first shutout victory with the 6-0 pounding of the Cyclones this past Thursday.
The Trenton Devils ended their road trip this weekend with two wins over the Wheeling Nailers.
Taking down Wheeling 4-2 on Saturday and 5-1 on Sunday, Trenton may have gained the momentum to catch up to the Johnstown Chiefs who sit in fifth place, the final playoff spot.
The Trenton Devils snapped a 10-game losing streak when they scored four straight goals to take out the Johnstown Chiefs 4-3 Sunday night.
It looked as though the losing streak would continue until a power play goal began a rally for the T-Devils. A charging center Jim Henkel scored his 15th goal of the season off a pass from forward Jason Bonsignore 9:31 into the second period to climb to a 2-1 score under the Chiefs.
The Cincinnati Cyclones, Dayton Bombers and Johnstown Chiefs were all too much for the Trenton Devils as they went 0-3 on the three-day road trip last weekend.
All ECHL North Division rivals, the victors struck harsh blows to the T-Devils' record. Now standing at 18-25-1-4, Trenton is clutching onto the fifth place spot with only a one-point advantage in the rankings over Johnstown.
The local Trenton Devils broke down the Elmira Jackals for the second week in a row as the Devils outlasted the Jackals in a 4-3 overtime win.
The Jackals were the first place team in the ECHL's North Division before losing to the T-Devils 5-2 last Friday.
Last Friday night, the Devils hosted the then-first place Elmira Jackets in a game that saw five separate fights break out between the teams, not including the fights referees broke up before they escalated.
"(Elmira is) a physical team," head coach Rick Kowalsky said.
Talk of body fat, bad breath and stalking filled the Rathskeller (Rat) Monday night when four comedians set out to get the most laughs out of the crowd.
Part of the New Jersey Comedy Festival, the Rat played host to the first round of a competition between college students all over New Jersey trying to become the "King of Campus Comedy.
On Nov. 15, I was graced with news that preserved one of the few pure things left in this world: baseball.
Barry Bonds was indicted on four counts of perjury and one of obstruction of justice. These counts were made based on Bonds' December 2003 testimony where he said he didn't knowingly use performance-enhancing drugs obtained from his trainer, Greg Anderson, who just happened to be released from prison the same day as Bonds' indictment.
Jounce took the stage last Friday night at the Rathskeller (Rat) to a crowd unaware of the band's musical capabilities. Featuring self-described "Jersey Boys" Dan Tambarelli on lead vocals and bass, Matt DeSteno on lead guitar and backup vocals and Joe Ciarallo on drums, Jounce played a montage of impressive guitar-heavy songs that left the crowd speechless.
There is nothing college students appreciate more than advice from professionals in the industry they are studying.
"You have the world in the palm of your hand. You just don't know it," Dominic Ambrosio, vice president of studio operations for HBO, said.
