Home Opener Ends in a Tie with UMass

The Terriers opened up a 2-0 lead in the first period thanks to strikes from freshman Matt Nieto (first as a Terrier) and junior co-captain Chris Connolly, but were unable to retain the lead as UMass came back to tie up the game with two goals of their own in the third period. Nieto's goal was a one-timer in the slot off a feed from Corey Trivino from behind the net, while Connolly's came on a wrister from the right circle. Matt Nieto had a breakaway chance in the dying moments of overtime, but couldn't cash in as BU settled for a tie.

Kieran Millan made the start and had 28 saves. The first goal allowed, scored by UMass defenseman Darren Rowe, came on an apparent deflection in front, while the second goal came as a result of blown coverage that left a man alone in front. Freshman goaltender Jeff Teglia played well for UMass, saving 33 of 35 shots as the BU outshot the Minutemen.

Looking Ahead
Two future Terriers faced off in USHL play last night, as the Cason Hohmann's Cedar Rapids Roughriders defeated Adam Erne's Indiana Ice, 4-1. Hohmann tallied two assists in the game, while Erne scored the lone goal for the Ice.
