BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - UMaine men’s hockey had multiple early leads but could not stop #17 UMass Lowell’s barrage falling Monday 9-5. The Black Bears did cut the deficit to one in the third before the River Hawks pulled away to victory.

Eduards Tralmaks leading the way for Maine offensively with two goals and an assist.

A number of firsts happened in the game, Edward Lindelow and Levi Kleiboer both tallied their first career goals for UMaine. Goaltender Victor Ostman got his first career start but gave up 4 goals. Matt Thiessen suffered the loss in relief. He surrendered 5 goals against. Maine drops to 0-3-1.

“We weren’t pleased with ourselves, with the way we managed our emotion,” says UMaine head men’s hockey coach Red Gendron, “There was a lot of backbiting on the bench, and we simply didn’t do a good job doing our own jobs and supporting each other. So pretty angry...”

They play at Vermont Friday and Saturday at 2 PM on both days.

The UMaine women’s hockey team got another incredible weekend from goaltender Loryn Porter. She stopped 84 shots over two games. Her 40 saves Monday were not enough as they fell to #4 Northeastern 1-0 on a third period goal. The Black Bears did not score in the series. They drop to 4-4 and will face Vermont this weekend. The series is scheduled to be played in Orono. However, as has been the case during the pandemic, both future match-ups for the men and women are subject to change this week due to Coronavirus protocols.
