BOSTON, MA – Union College completed the weekend sweep of Northeastern with a 3-1 victory over the Huskies in Historic Matthews Arena.
Scoring opened up just over 6 minutes into the first period when Sebastian Vidmar slipped home a power play goal for his third tally of the season. Just five minutes later, a bad turnover in the defensive zone by Northeastern gave Union control of the puck and allowed Jack Adams, a Detroit Red Wings prospect, to score what would ultimately be the game-winning goal.
After a five-minute major was assessed to Adams for hitting Billy Carrabino from behind, the Huskies found their first and only goal of the game when Ryan shed fed Grant Jozefek for a tap-in score. Northeastern would be held off the scoresheet for the rest of the game.
The Dutchmen thought they had made the game 3-1 but the whistle had been blown dead on the play before Vidmar could push the puck past the goal line. After a lengthy review, Vidmar was able to put a wrist-shot past Primeau right off of the next faceoff.
The Huskies fell to 2-2-0 on the season. Their next contest will be a Hockey East matchup against Lowell at the Tsongas Center in Lowell, MA on Friday, October 26.
