No. 8/9 Endicott, No. 10/10 UNE Skate To 4-4 Tie (OT); Olsson Notches 100th Point

BEVERLY, Mass. – The No. 8/9 Endicott men's ice hockey team skated to a 1-1 overtime tie against conference foe No. 10/10 University of New England (UNE) on Saturday night at Raymond J. Bourque Arena. 

Trailing 4-1 headed into the third period, the Nor'easters climbed back into the contest with a short-handed tally from Liam Neuman (Newmarket, Ontario) and back-to-back goals from Ryan Bloom (Northville, Mich.) to tie up the contest at 4-4. 

Meanwhile, in overtime, Endicott goalie Mark Specia (Ringwood, N.J.) made two saves and UNE netminder Tate Sproxton (Surrey, British Columbia) stopped five shots – mostly on the penalty kill – as both teams settled for the draw. 

Highlighting Endicott's night offensively was Ross Olsson (Billerica, Mass.) as the junior forward potted a hat-trick with his third and finally tally accounting for his 100th career point. Olsson is the first student-athlete in program history to reach the 100 career point plateau. 

BEYOND THE BOX SCORE

  • Jason Kalinowsk (Stamford, Conn.) registered Endicott's only other goal with his eighth of the season at 3:56 of the second period. At the time, it gave the Gulls a 3-1 advantage.
  • Logan Day (Seminole, Fla.) dished out a game-high and career-high four assists. Day's four-assist night currently ranks third all-time in program history.
  • Specia finished with 32 saves (10-2-1). 

FOR THE FOES

  • Sproxton had 45 saves for the Nor'easters (8-2-1).
  • UNE is 3-1-1 in its last five games.
  • The Nor'easters are also 7-2-3 on the road this season.
