April 16, 2005
The Game Story:
GORHAM, Maine -- Sophomore middie Nick Lapointe's (Tyngsboro,
Mass.) second goal of the game snapped a 4-4 tie with 4:29 left in the third
period and the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Corsairs went on to
post a 10-5 victory over the University of Southern Maine Huskies in a
Little East Conference game Saturday afternoon at Hodgdon Field.
The win breaks a four-game losing skid for the Corsairs. UMD
improves to 3-6 overall and 1-3 in the conference. Southern Maine dropped
its second straight to fall to 1-6 overall and 0-4 in the LEC.
Lapointe scored the only goal of the first quarter to give the
visitors a 1-0 lead after 15 minutes. Freshman Nick McEvoy (Wrentham,
Mass.) and sophomore Ryan Darmon (Sandwich, Mass.) found the net to increase
the margin to 3-0 midway through the second period.
Sophomore Brian White (Gorham, Maine/Cheverus) and freshman Tim Beauchamp
(Lexington, Mass.) scored for Southern Maine in the final six minutes to
make it 3-2 at halftime.
USM senior Ben Sylvia (Bristol, Maine/Kents Hill) tied the game less
than two minutes into the third quarter. Junior Ryan Grant (Framingham,
Mass.) put UMD back on top 38 seconds later. White's second goal of the
game with 12:22 on the clock knotted the game at 4-4.
After Lapointe broke the tie, McEvoy, with 2:24 left in the third
quarter, and freshman Kevin Enwright (Burlington, Mass.), three minutes into
the fourth quarter, scored to make it 7-4.
White got the Huskies back within two at 7-5 with a man-up goal with
9:25 to play, but that was as close as USM would get as the Corsairs scored
the game's final three goals.
Grant and McEvoy each had three goals to lead the Corsairs. White
topped the Huskies' scoring list with three goals.
Freshman goalie Steve Chase (Boston, Mass./Boston Latin) finished
with 10 saves for the Corsairs. Junior Jeff Lamoureux (Walpole, Mass.) was
credited with 21 saves for the Huskies.
Southern Maine will travel to Thomas College on Monday for a
non-conference game starting at 4:00 p.m. UMass Dartmouth hits the road
