HALLOWELL, Maine – The Thomas College ice hockey team fell to Springfield College 4-3 on Wednesday evening at the Camden National Bank Ice Vault.
After a scoreless first, Springfield got on the board with a power play goal to make it 1-0 with 12 minutes to go in the second period. Thomas answered right back with a Benjamin MacLennan (Portland, Maine) goal less than two minutes later to tie the game 1-1. Springfield netted three straight goals over a five-minute stretch, however, to take a 4-1 lead into the second intermission.
The Terriers scored twice in two-minutes early in the third to make it 4-3. Alex Berard (Winslow, Maine) picked up a goal five minutes in, before MacLennan netted his second of the game two minutes later on the power play. Thomas was unable to get the equalizer though, and the Pride took the 4-3 win.
Tom Green (Biddeford, Maine) allowed four goals in net and took the loss for Thomas.
Thomas will host the University of New England in their regular season finale on Friday, February 8 at 8:00 PM at the Ice Vault.
