DURHAM, N.H. — Two goals were scored on Friday night. Both by the UMass Lowell River Hawks, meaning the New Hampshire Wildcats skated away with none.

Kevin Boyle stopped 33-of-33 shots fired by the Wildcats on his way to a 2-0 shutout win over New Hampshire. Boyle’s shutout win is his second of his collegiate career, his first as a member of the River Hawks. His only other shutout came as a member of the Massachusetts Minutemen on November 9, 2012 in a 4-0 win over the Providence College Friars.

Friday night’s win was the complete opposite of his performance last Friday night against the Michigan Wolverines. Boyle surrendered six goals on 30 shots as the River Hawks were defeated by the Wolverines, 8-4.

Boyle improves to 3-1-1 on the season with a .906 save percentage and 2.98 goals-against average over five games.

Freshman forward John Edwardh got the River Hawks off on the right start with a goal at the 16:40 mark of the first period, assisted by Chris Maniccia and Jake Kamrass. Edwardh’s goal was his first of his collegiate career and proved to be the game-winning goal when all was said and done.

Kamrass’ assist of the game-winning goal was the first point of his collegiate career.

A.J. White tallied his second goal of the season at 4:44 of the second period, extending UMass Lowell lead.

UMass Lowell is back in action during the second half of this home-and-home series at the Tsongas Center on Saturday night. The first 500 fans and 500 students will be given a Trophy Bobble Head.
