Hockey roundup: UMass-Lowell sweeps past BU

Two teams going in opposite directions were on display when Boston University and UMass-Lowell met in a weekend home-and-home series, and that meant bad news for the 15th-ranked Terriers.

Scott Wilson scored 5:47 into the game and the No. 12 River Hawks (18-9-2, 12-8-2 Hockey East) never looked back in beating BU, 3-1, Saturday night in Lowell.

UMass-Lowell, which increased its winning streak to four games, blanked the Terriers, 3-0, Friday night. BU is 1-5-2 in its last eight games and has scored three or more goals only twice in that span.


Evan Rodrigues scored a shorthanded goal for BU (14-4-2, 11-9-2) at 8:25 of the third period to get the Terriers within 2-1, but Joseph Pendenza restored the two-goal lead with 7:55 left.
