HARRISVILLE, R.I. – The Endicott men's ice hockey team fell to No. 15 nationally ranked Nichols College, 5-2, on Friday night in conference action at Levy Rink.
Nichols jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the contest before Endicott finally broke up the shutout at the 4:44 mark of the third period on Josh Bowes' (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) team-leading fifth goal of the season.
The Gulls then cut into the deficit at 4-2 only 20-seconds later via a tally from Luke Rodgers (Clarkston, Mich.), but it wasn't enough as Nichols added one more score with 59-seconds to play in the contest to lock up the win.
BEYOND THE BOX SCORE
- Nichols now owns a 4-3-0 advantage in the all-time series.
- The Bison won the first game played between the two programs back on November 4, 2015, and the two teams have traded wins ever since then.
- Bowes also won a team-high 12 faceoffs, while Tommy Besinger (Milton, Mass.) had 10 wins at the face-off dot as well.
Endicott (2-1-1, 2-1-0 CCC) hosts No. 15 Nichols (3-0-0, 3-0-0 CCC) tomorrow at Raymond J. Bourque Arena at 3 PM.
