CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Freshman defenseman Christian Folin notched the decisive at 15:13 of the third period and Riley Wetmore sealed the win into an empty net to lift No. 10 UMass-Lowell to a 4-2 Hockey East victory over host-and-fourth-ranked Boston College in the series finale between the teams before 3,708 fans at Kelley Rink.

The victory also lifts the River Hawks into a four-way tie with Boston College, New Hampshire and Providence in the league standings with four games left in the regular season. Following tonight's contest, the River Hawks have a home-and-home series with Merrimack this weekend while the Eagles face Providence for a two-game set.

The visiting River Hawks took a 2-1 lead into the third period before BC forward Bill Arnold tied the score at 2-2 on his second goal of the night - a power-play score - at 8:40.

UMass-Lowell answered with a goal from Folin from the slot at 15:13 and Wetmore's empty-netter at 19:14 for the 4-2 final.

UMass-Lowell freshman goaltender Connor Hellebuyck stopped 22 shots to capture the victory and improve to 11-1-0. BC senior Parker Milner recorded 25 saves in 59:12. He falls to 18-8-3.

The River Hawks opened the scoring at 10:41 of the first period with a power play goal from Scott Wilson. Arnold scored his first goal of the night to even the score at 12:40 and UMass-Lowell responded with another goal just 23 seconds later to take a 2-1 lead into the second period.

BC finished 1-1 on the power play while UMass-Lowell went 1-4.
