Friars Skate to 2-2 Tie with UMass-LowellBox Score
BILLERICA, Mass. -- The Providence College Friars and the UMass-Lowell River Hawks skated to a 2-2 tie on Friday, Jan. 23 in HOCKEY EAST action at UMass' Tully Forum.
After a scoreless first period, River Hawk forward Brad Rooney broke the 0-0 tie at 2:36 of the second period when he poked in a rebound next to the left post. Rooney extended UMass-Lowell's lead with a short-handed tally at the 9:24 mark of the second. PC defenseman Joshn MacNevin sent a shot in from the left point that deflected off the skate of a River Hawk defenseman and found the back of the net at 18:53 of the second period.
MacNevin's goal broke a 228 minute and 18 second scoring drought by the Friars, which had resulted in three consecutive shutouts. Sixteen seconds after MacNevin's goal, PC's Fernando Pisani tallied what proved to be the final goal of the game when he finished off a two-on-one break in with a one-timer past UMass-Lowell netminder Scott Fankhouser.
Fankhouser recorded 22 stops for the River Hawks. PC netminder Mark Kane made 29 saves in his first start for the Friars since Nov. 28.
With the tie, Providence moves to 12-8-2 overall and 6-6-1 in HOCKEY EAST action, while UMass-Lowell is 8-9-3 overall and 5-5-3 in league play.
Providence College will return to action on Saturday, Jan. 24 against UMass-Lowell at PC's Schneider Arena at 7:00 p.m.
