LOWELL, Mass. - The No. 7 ranked UMass Lowell hockey team was defeated by No. 14 Michigan, 8-4, on Friday night at the Tsongas Center in front of a crowd of 6,753 fans.
Zach Hyman led the offense for the visitors, tallying a hat trick and adding two assists. Adam Chapie (Oxford, Mich.) led UMass Lowell with one goal and two assists.
The Wolverines (2-2-0, 0-0-0-0 Big Ten) dominated the first seven minutes of the game outshooting the River Hawks 5-0. Michigan's defense then took over and blocked three straight UMass Lowell shots within a few seconds of each other with just over 12:30 remaining in the period.
C.J. Smith (Des Moines, Iowa.) registered the first River Hawks' (2-1-1, 1-0-0 Hockey East) shot with 12:26 to go, but two minutes later Evan Campbell went to the box and the Wolverines capitalized on the power play. Alex Kile scored his second goal of the season at 10:36.
The visitors doubled their lead to 2-0 at 12:36 when a shot by Tyler Motte beat Kevin Boyle (Manalapan, N.J.) off the post and in.
The River Hawks responded to cut the lead to 2-1 on a goal by Chapie with five minutes until the first intermission. Joe Gambardella (Staten Island, N.Y.) found Chapie streaking towards the front of net and Chapie slid the puck under Steve Racine.
Michigan outshot the River Hawks 15-6 after one period of play.
Just 2:27 into the period Hyman scored his first goal and extended the visitor's lead to 3-1 when his shot found its way past a mess of players in front of Boyle and into net.
A.J. White (Dearborn, Mich.) cut the deficit to 3-2 only 31 seconds later. Evan Campbell (Port Coquitlam, British Columbia) held the puck behind the net and found White in-between the circles and let go a high wrist-shot into the back of the net.
The Wolverines regained their two-goal lead at 14:49 from Hyman's second goal of the game. Kile found Hyman in the front on the crease and the senior forward snuck the puck past Boyle.
After applying pressure for a solid few minutes UMass Lowell capitalized with 7:49 left the period to get back within one goal. Terrence Wallin (Yardley, Pa.) scored his first goal of the season on a redirection off a shot by Tyler Mueller (Regina, Saskatchewan) from the point.
During four-on-four play Michigan went up 5-3 with 4:25 left in the period. Hyman had the original shot on net, and the rebound bounced up to Dylan Larkin who swatted the puck into the net. The River Hawks almost responded 1:12 later but Robert Francis' point-blank opportunity went right into the chest of Racine.
Hyman completed the hat trick with 1:52 left in the second period on a snipe to the upper stick-side of Boyle.
The River Hawks got on the board first in the third period to get within 6-4. Michael Kapla (Eau Claire, Wisc.) sent a cross-ice pass to Dylan Zink (Madison, Wisc.) who fired the shot with 17:14 on the clock.
The Wolverines took back the thee-goal lead 10 seconds later on a goal from Dexter Dancs. Michigan made it 8-4 on a goal from Zach Werenski at 7:50 of the third.
UMass Lowell was outshot 38-33, but held a 14-6 advantage in the third period. Chapie had a team-high five shots, while Hyman also had five for the visitors. Michigan also held the advantage on the power play, going 1-for-1 while the River Hawks went 0-for-1.
Boyle finished the night making 24 saves in 38:08, but got pulled after the sixth Wolverine goal. Jeff Smith (Maple Ridge, British Columbia) played the remaining 21:52 and made six saves. Racine earned his second win of the season for the Wolverines making 29 saves.
The River Hawks look to bounce back tomorrow night with a matchup against the Michigan State Spartans at 7 p.m. at the Tsongas Center on Homecoming Weekend.
