Terrier rally falls short

A third period rally by BU fell short as the Terriers dropped a 7-4 decision to Harvard at the Bright-Landry Center. Trailing 5-2 going into the third period, BU closed the gap to one on goals by Danny O’Regan and Ahti Oksanen. But with the Terriers on a five-minute man advantage a turnover led to a Sean Malone breakaway goal for the Crimson with a minute and a half left. Malone added an empty-netter for the final margin.

BU scored in the game’s first minute when Cason Hohmann, who returned to the lineup following a shoulder injury, scored his fourth goal of the season. Harvard scored the next three goals, before Dillon Lawrence’s (photo) first college goal cut the lead to 3-2 midway through the second period. The home team added two more goals to extend the lead to 5-2.

Matt O’Connor stopped 15 of 19 shots before being relieve by Sean Maguire, who turned aside 10 of 12 shots.

Looking ahead
BU’s newest recruit, AJ Greer scored four goals for Kimball Union to help the Wildcats win the Belmont Hill/Nichols Tourney. After scoring twice in the round robin, Greer netted the overtime game-winner as KUA edged Nichols in the semi-final, 3-2, then added another goal in the championship game win against Millbrook by the same score.

Looking back
David Van der Gulik scored a natural hat trick for Lake Erie in the Monsters' 6-1 defeat of Milwaukee with two goals in the second period and another in the third.
