College Hockey:
Yeats, Maine, Keep Riverhawks In Check

Goaltender Shuts Out Lowell Making 21 Saves

— Matt Yeats stopped all 21 UMass-Lowell shots as the University of Maine blanked the River Hawks, 2-0, Friday night in front of 2,687 at the Tsongas Arena.

The loss was the second straight for UML (3-6-0, 1-6-0 Hockey East) and fifth in its last six games. The Black Bears (4-3-2, 2-1-1 Hockey East) enjoyed their second straight victory.

Maine opened the scoring 11 minutes, 30 seconds into the first period as sophomore C Lucas Lawson registered his third goal of the season off assists from sophomore LW Rober Liscak and freshman RW Todd Jackson.

Junior RW Niko Dimitrakos, playing in his first game of the year, gave Maine a 2-0 cushion 4:16 into the second period as he tucked in a goal off a textbook give-and-go from senior LW Dan Kerluke.

Both teams skated through an uneventful third period until Dimitrakos and sophomore D Ron Hainsey each received a game disqualification for fighting.

Junior G Cam McCormick stopped 24 shots for UML as he slipped to 0-3 on the year.

UML visits Army Sunday at 2 p.m. while Maine visits Cornell Tuesday at 7:00.
