HAMDEN, Conn. - The No. 9 ranked UMass Lowell hockey team pulled out a 3-3 tie at No. 13 Quinnipiac on Saturday night at High Point Solutions Arena.
Sophomore forward Joe Gambardella (Staten Island, N.Y.) tied the game with 1:18 remaining in regulation on an extra attacker goal. A shot by sophomore forward Evan Campbell (Port Coquitlam, B.C.) deflected off Gambardella past QU freshman netminder Sean Lawrence to get the road point. With the tie, the River Hawks own a 2-0-1 overall record, while the Bobcats move to 1-1-1.
Quinnipiac's Justin Agosta tied the game at 2-2 on the power play with 16:21 left in the third period on a wrist shot from left point. With 10:30 left in the third period Kevin Boyle came out of the crease to challenge a charging Sam Anas, but he covered the puck before Anas could gain control. Quinnipiac took a 3-2 lead off a back hander by Landon Smith for his second goal on the game off a rebound with just 8:54 left in the third. Anas totaled a game-high 12 shots on net for the Bobcats.
Campbell got the River Hawks on the scoreboard first at 10:05 of the first period for his second goal of the season. It marked the second straight night that UMass Lowell scored the opening goal of the contest. Quinnipiac tied the game just four and a half minutes later on a power play goal by Landon Smith. UMass Lowell struck back just 2:28 later to retake the lead at 2-1 on a goal by sophomore defenseman Michael Kapla (Eau Claire, Wis.). The Bobcats held a 11-5 shot advantage going to the locker room at the end of the first period.
UMass Lowell went on the power play just 1:30 into the game on a interference penalty by QU's Connor Clifton. Senior forward Terrence Wallin (Yardley, Pa.) had a great chance on the penalty kill with 12 minutes left in the first period off a feed from Gambardella, which was unsuccessful. Wallin ended up collecting the puck in front of the Bobcat net, getting the River Hawks first shot on goal on the play.
Junior Kevin Boyle (Manalapan, N.J.) totaled 35 saves in his third start of the season in the River Hawks' net. Lawrence made his first career start for the Bobcats making 19 stops. Senior blueliner Zack Kamrass (Atlanta, Ga.) recorded a team-high four shots on goal.
