Mat Bodie - Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Mat Bodie hit the century mark in career scoring on Friday night.

Schenectady, NY -- Union College won its sixth straight game on Friday night, easily disposing of an injury-depleted Princeton squad, 3-0. Kevin Sullivan and Daniel Ciampini scored first period goals for the Dutchmen and Mat Bodie added an insurance marker in the final frame.

Bodie had an assist in addition to his goal to give him 100 career points at Union. The Dutchmen (9-3-2) outshot the Tigers 34-20. Union junior goaltender Colin Stevens recorded his second shutout of the season.

Rick Bennett's team is now just two points behind Quinnipiac in the standings with the Bobcats coming to town on Saturday evening. However, Union has played two less games than Quinnipiac, who rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie RPI, 3-3 on Friday night.
