BOSTON, MA – The Vermont Catamounts tallied two goals – one in the first by Jacob Fallon and one in the second by Ben Albertson, which helped them defeat Northeastern University on Friday evening at the Matthews Arena, 2-1.
Adam Reid provided Northeastern with a 1-0 lead after he followed his initial shot, which bounced off Brody Hoffman’s pads.
Vermont answered with a Fallons strike – a rebound goal that bounced off Chris Rawlings’s pad following a shot from the point by Nick Luukko.
The Catamounts doubled their goal total at 11:29 in the second when Albertson received a pass in the zone from Caylen Walls and fired the puck past Rawlings.
Northeastern had a few chances during the final minutes to deposit the equalizer, but Hoffman denied the chances.
Both squads will meet for the final time this season tomorrow evening at the Matthews; face-off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
