BURRILLVILLE, R.I – Trailing Nichols College by two tallies entering the middle period, Assumption College responded with two goals to tie the game at 2.
Trevor Plante and Kyle Zobler evened the consolation match with strikes late in the period, while goaltender Bobby Bowden fended off 12 shots by Nichols College’s offense.
Plante potted his second goal of the season after a few shot attempts by teammate Brennen Shaw, which were denied by Alex Larson’s pads, and Zobler scored on a power play following a faceoff down the left side.
After two periods, the Bison still lead in shots on goal, 23-21. Nichols has also won 29-of-48 face-offs, too.
