LOWELL, Mass. - UMass Lowell hockey fell just short, 2-1, against #10 New Hampshire on Saturday night in front of 3,691 fans in the Tsongas Center. Freshman goaltender Doug Carr (Hanover, Mass.) made a career-high 41 saves in the narrow defeat.

The loss drops the River Hawks' record to 2-6-2 overall and 2-6-0 in Hockey East action. The Wildcats improve to 4-1-2 on the season and 2-0-1 in conference play.

New Hampshire put the first score on the board at 4:25 into the first period. John Henrion (Holden, Mass.) hit Dalton Speelman (San Jose, Calif.) with a pass on the weak-side to beat Carr for the quick goal.

UMass Lowell leveled the score midway through the second period on the power play. Shayne Thompson (Stiltsville, Ont.) ringed a shot off the post from the point and the puck sat behind goaltender Matt DiGirolamo (Ambler, Pa.) in the crease. Matt Ferreira (Brampton, Ont.) seized the opportunity to tap in the score for his second goal of the season.

The Wildcats didn't wait long to reclaim the lead, scoring what proved to be the game-winner at 13:25 into the second. Henrion flipped a back-handed shot from a few feet out that beat Carr between the pads.

The River Hawks nearly tied the game with less than five minutes remaining in regulation. Josh Holmstrom (Colorado Springs, Colo.) put a shot under DiGirolamo's pads, but after the puck disappeared from sight, the whistle was blown. A second after the whistle, the puck came rolling out towards the net and stopped just an inch short.

Despite the result, Carr (2-3-1) was outstanding in net, stopping 41-of-42 shots and holding both New Hampshire power plays scoreless. DiGirolamo (4-1-2) continued his strong play, making 24 saves in the win and allowing one power play goal in four opportunities.

The River Hawks will take a break next weekend, not taking the ice again until Nov. 19 for a 7 p.m. clash with the Merrimack Warriors. The Wildcats will return home to host UMass Amherst on Friday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m.
