Colleges: UMass hockey starts slow in loss to Qunnipiac

Published: 12/1/2019 7:55:30 PM

The UMass men’s hockey team couldn’t climb out of a two-goal hole in the third period Saturday and lost 2-1 against Quinnipiac at the Mullins Center.

Amherst’s John Leonard cut the Minutemen’s deficit to one with 2 minutes, 29 seconds left from Jack Suter and Oliver Chau.

“I thought we started very poorly,” UMass coach Greg Carvel said. “Quinnipiac is a very well-coached team and they obviously, after last night, had a lot more desperation in their game than we did to start. It’s frustrating when you have to say ‘too little too late’ and that was the case.”

Filip Lindberg made 23 saves for UMass. The Minutemen (9-4-1) put 26 shots on goal and won 33-of-61 faceoffs.

Nick Jermain put the Bobcats ahead near the end of the second period, while Alex Whelan scored six minutes into the third.

Geneseo 3, Amherst 2 — Noah Gilreath gave the Mammoths a lead 9:29 in Saturday, but the fourth-ranked Crusaders? scored the next three to pull away. Sean Wrenn added a third-period goal for Amherst assisted by Joey Lupo.

Giancarlo Ventre saved 29 shots.

Babson 1, Amherst 1 — Pieter von Steinberg put the Mammoths ahead just 1:19 in Sunday, but the Beavers tied it four minutes later.

Nick Bondra and Patrick Daly asisted von Steinberg.

Dan Dachille saved 26 shots for Amherst (2-3-1).

Women’s hockey

Amherst 7, Utica 1 — Stephanie Nomicos distributed three assists, and the Mammoths rolled Saturday.
